Finally getting around to posting some new paintings.
I updated the first 2 images today. I didn't feel that the colors matched the original paintings. I usually shoot my paintings outside but was in a bit of a hurry last time and shot them indoors. I never feel I can match the colors correctly when shooting indoors. So this morning I finally got around to re shoot them, much better.
I want to let everyone know that I have a show that opened last week and will be up through November 26th. It is at the Petley Gallery on Cork st. in Mayfair. The artist reception was last Wednesday the 12th and I was fortunate to be able to make it over from Seattle. Sadly I don't have any pics from the event but I went by the following day and took some photos that you can see below. I want to thank Roy, Jason, Alex and Mac for a great show.
First is a 6 hour oil painting 20in X 24in of Sara. She had just returned from France so the traveling pose really fit with her mood. Next is a quick landscape 18in X 14in done just north of Redmond in the valley around 7 in the morning on a Sunday. The Sun was just breaking through the trees. This next one was my second take at the Cove with is a little beach close to my grandparents near Sea Tack airport. This version differed from the first because it was quite sunny and really made the colors pop. These next 4 are from yesterday morning they are vine charcoal on paper done in 25 min. The model was Sara and the Catwoman poses were very fun to draw. Hope you enjoy.
Here are some recent paintings. The first is a shell that was painted in one sitting in my studio. I had a lot of fun playing with all the temperatures of white. I would like to do more of these high key paintings. The next is a painting of a model I found on Modelmayhem named Kyoko she has a bit of a pixie quality. You may recognize Pigeon in the next one I have used her as a model for a couple of years now. She is fun to paint and a solid model. Anna the model in the last painting is also a very good model and one I have been painting for a while. All the paintings are oil on canvas 16in X 20in and completed in about 3 hours.
Here are some paintings I did last weekend. My wife and son were out of town so I was able to paint all weekend. The figurative paintings are from the Life drawing session I organize. The beach landscape is from an area near Seatac called the Cove. The stream was in Farrel McWhirter park in Redmond. And lastly the flowers were in studio.
Here are some paintings and drawing from the last month. The Windmill is a plein air from Marymoor Park in Redmond Washington. The painting of the house is my Grandparents house it has always been one of my favorite places on earth.
