Just a quick landscape using some new techniques I am trying out.  Fun, just for fun....

Winston Portrait WIP

Commission of a parrot portrait.  In exchange for a cage for my one legged parrot Simba, they want a portrait of the parrot which had been it's previous occupant.  Just blocking in colors and trying to figure out the best way to paint feathers.  It will be an adventure....

Russian Princess WIP

Added hair color today, which is sort of a compromise.  The model had bright metallic pink hair.  Still need to place in the highlights.    Did not know if the little blue flowers would work, but seem to be ok, with maybe a glaze of them.  Will see on Tuesday morning.

Russian Princess WIP

Layer after layer trying to get the skin tones acceptable.  The hair is really throwing me off right now.  The girl actually has bright metallic pinkish/red hair. Not sure whether to stick with that or go brown.

Hilton Head Painting

SOLD - I have done 2 paintings so far based on photographs I took while at Hilton Head.  This is a shot I took while standing out in the ocean.  Yes, there was no one else around at this time.  This painting is regular acrylics on an 8 x 10 canvas.
