Scrub Jay

I love doing realistic paintings of things. I always go into the most relaxed mode as I do it. I had a lot of fun with this painting of a Scrub Jay.

Old King Cole

I've been having so much fun lately painting in my toned paper sketchbook. There is something so nice about not setting up my usual pristine white paper, where I am often too afraid to even put a mark down, and just go from sketch to final within the comfort of a sketchbook page. So I am exploring some new things and I am excited to see where this new adventure leads.

I've also been having a lot of fun taking the images into photoshop and playing around with different textures to accentuate the characters.

This was a project for school on one of the seven deadly sins. I chose greed. But there is also a bit of gluttony in there.

Christmas Gifts

These were Christmas gifts that I made for my family. They are watercolour and ink on wooden plaques. They were a lot of fun to do. Nice to do something final other than schoolwork.

So this is a really depressing little story, I forewarn you, but it is a truth about our world none-the-less...

Weekly portraits..

As part of a project for my class this year I am going to be doing at least one self-portrait a week. I am really looking forward to this. I am looking to explore in media, techniques, maybe some writing, and maybe so more surrealist approaches. So far I have two of a more traditional approach...

They are all going to be done in my little moleskin watercolour book, and at the end I hope to have a great compilation of portraits and writing, and maybe I will be able to produce a little booklet out of it. We'll see! : )
