Red Squirrel ACEO

Sold
red squirrel ACEO painting
Here is a new acrylic painting- ACEO/trading card size (2.5x3.5).
I painted this on Canson toned paper. I think that in a lot of ways, this paper is the ideal painting surface for these small acrylic wildlife paintings. I just really like how it accepts the paint and how well it works with both washes and layers of thicker paint.

Rainbow

rainbow oil painting
It's been a while, but hopefully you will enjoy this new painting. This is a first- I've never painted a rainbow before. Although for me, this was more about the clouds and trees. Those elements are much more interesting to paint.

Well, finally- here is a new oil painting. It's been a while, I know- sorry to all the oil lovers! I hope you enjoy it and hopefully it's been worth the wait. I'll have to check the archives to see when I last posted an actual oil painting. It's been nice getting back to some still life painting. I have some landscape and wildlife oils in the works as well.

Sketchbook Sketching

tree sketches
Here are a couple of pages from my sketchbook. I'm doing a series of sketches of a tree in the backyard that's home to two squirrels. I had previously thought that they lived in a hollow in the trunk, but recently discovered that they enter and leave through a hole in one of the branches.

From Wikipedia:


While the dragon has historically served as China's national emblem, in recent decades the Giant Panda has also served as an emblem for the country. Its image appears on a large number of modern Chinese commemorative silver, gold, and platinum coins.

Coyote Acrylic Painting ACEO

Sold
coyote painting aceo

Hot off the board, this is one of two paintings just finished.

From Wikipedia:

Unlike its cousin the Gray Wolf, which is Eurasian in origin, the coyote evolved in North America alongside the Dire Wolf. Unlike the wolf, the coyote's range has expanded in the wake of human civilization, and readily reproduces in metropolitan areas. It is thought by certain experts that the coyote's North American origin may account for its greater adaptability than the wolf, due to North America's greater prehistoric predation pressures.

Parrot Painting

parrot painting
Happy New Year! I thought I would start off 2009 with a painting. This was part of a series of bird paintings- all acrylic on canvas. I think the size on this was 16" x 20". This was when I was painting a lot in acrylics. With acrylics, I would often paint backgrounds with the airbrush (blending acrylics over a large area can be maddening).

The parrot was painted with thin layers applied traditionally with the brush, alternating every so often with transparent color applied with the airbrush. I continued to alternate brushwork and airbrush glazing to build up the form and details.
