I have noticed that by making videos I have instilled more discipline in creating my work. I create the work more efficiently and the painting/drawing looks better, as it does not have a belabored look.
This one is a copy of one of the masters from the past. I did not bother to copy the likeness, as I was focusing on the skin-tones more. Watch the Timelapse Video by <<Clicking Here>>
Here is a pencil sketch that I did sitting on my couch. You gotta love the portability of pencils! Watch the timelapse Video by << Clicking Here>>
I love Christmas ornaments and painting them. I painted this one in gouache and did the fine details in Water-color pencil and Pastel. I have put up a timelapse video on youtube,< Click Here >
I fell in love with this Chinese Health Balls, (for exercising the hand). The embroidered box and the shiny metal balls just begged to be painted. The painting, I feel, is much better than the photograph you see. This one is up for purchase/bid at: << Purchase/Bid >> <= Click link here to read more about the art and sale. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
Well, I think the title of this post is appropriate, for this Turkish beauty. However, I am not a big fan of the actual dessert: “Turkish Delight”. I find it too gummy and the taste sort of sits orthogonal to the expectations of my taste buds. Of course, some tastes are cultivated and almost all cultures have a one-off that other cultures find obtuse. To each their own!

Here is a Gouache Painting of a Bowl done during lunch at Star-Bucks (Barnes and Noble). (Photo credit Lena Rivo from her gouache course).

Gouache is technically an opaque version of watercolor, however it handles more like oil and acrylic. I often use it for its portability and ease of clean-up. so it is a great way to get in my practice for oil.
A Tart from La Madeleine, (I ate it afterwards offcourse 🙂 ). You can watch the progress video here
Orange painted during lunch break, at Barnes and Noble book store.
So beautiful, it hurts! Ok maybe not,… but I have to write something to get your attention 😛
I attempted to capture her from a very difficult photo on Pinterest. Not all photos are meant for painting and the one I used was definitely not meant for painting. Next time I will either paint live in a warm light or choose a photo more suitable. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!

Reinforcing my understanding of depth and shadows in painting. Enjoy!
What do you do on a Friday Night? Sketch off course. Here is a sketch I recently did of a pic I got off of the internet. This is done in graphite, but it has less value range than charcoal, but the beauty of graphite is that you can do it on a white sofa. Some sacrifice has to be made to get your fix. 🙂 Enjoy.
I love to doodle, that is the most primal form of creativity. Just drawing lines and making sense of them. I doodle my wife’s name often. Here is a sample of one doodling session.
