Mothra, my Mothra

Monday, October 26, 2009

For reasons I don't really understand myself,
I really love this piece. The camellia may be partially imaginary,
the moth may be pure fiction,
but it just has something of a presence.
Sometimes art is just that way.

My only question: How do I get blogger to make these pictures bigger?

Plum crazy (yeah, I know, I'm sorry.)

Monday, October 12, 2009

Well, you'd think I'd get tired of plum blossomes at some point, but they are rather fun to paint.
I think this one needs some color. But what color? Should I do a wash of something brownish on the trunk or just do a few strokes of color here and there fore accent? Maybe I should go crasy and use little dabs of rainbow colors. Ach, I'l have to think on it. And any advice is welcome, so if you've got an opinion, state it here.
I definitely don't want to detract from the energetice brushstrokes I've already got in place.

The closest I am likely to get to a beach this year:

This is a big panoramic drawing I am working on right now for a lovely lady down in Florida that I met through Etsy. This is the largest architectural drawing I've ever done. It's 29" wide and quite a challenge to fill with a tiny pencil point and no projector. But it's nearly done... and the closest I got to a beach all summer (not strange for this landlocked body.)
