Wolf Painting work in progress
Work in progress of my latest painting: “Silver Spirit”. This is a re-do of a much older painting that I was not happy with. This is a huge painting, about 60 inches wide by 40 inches tall. Painted with acrylics on board. It is hard to tell from the picture, but I am using metallic paint, including silver, gold and pearl. When the light hits the painting just right, it really lights up!
The original painting underneath was something I had painted about 18 years ago, and had a lot of anatomical and proportional errors. I am hoping this newest iteration will be an improvement! The entire painting will be of a wolf standing on a cliff made of ice crystals, with lots of stars in the background. I basically painted the entire board black and started over again.
To the right is the original painting, done in 2001. It is an acrylic painting that I did on my bedroom wall. The painting itself has since been removed from the wall and mounted on wood. It will be very interesting to see a side-by-side comparison when it is complete!
Chinese Zodiac Animals – Year of the Rat sketch
Hello all! I have an exciting new project I am working on now! As soon as I am finished with my current commissions, I will be doing a series of Chinese Zodiac Animals in my colorful style! Starting with the rat, of which I have the sketch displayed above.
This is exciting and I cannot wait to get started! This is a project I have been thinking about doing for a while. As I make progress in this series, I will post them here for everyone to see. I created a new gallery just for these colorful zodiac animals here: Chinese Zodiac Animals.
I started a new drawing today. It is a running wolf, drawn in a tribal style. It is based on a few of my older works. It will be drawn on black paper with colored pencils, and I have not decided the colors yet.
Running Wolf Tribal Design Sketch
Here is all of the works in progress on my new drawing of the Neon Painted Turtle. This is a new drawing that I started as a series of psychedelic animals drawings. This turtle is being drawn with Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore 400 series drawing paper. I am using Neon green, Neon orange, Neon red, Neon yellow, non-photo blue, true blue, red, magenta, and a few other colors to really make the turtle a rainbow neon delight!
