A series of paintings…

The paintings below were done at various times within the past few weeks.  Once again pushing my skills and learning.

 

A Child and womans face are hardest to capture, they require tenderness and careful brush work.

This woman had extraordinarily large lips.  This needed more work, but I still like it for its raw look

This water lily is a culmination of imagination, photos and paintings.  In other words this place does not exist.

I saw this beautiful pussy-cat in a picture on Pinterest (thank you to the photographer).  What was interesting was that the tip of it’s tail was at 90 degrees, to which many viewers objected.

 

 

 

Digital Painting

I have started dabbling in Digital Art.  Procreate on iPad is, surprisingly, extremely flexible and a delight to use.  I don’t have any other software experience to compare it with, because this is the first one that I have used.  Once you have the hang of it and you have art background, it is much easier to get a desired result than any traditional medium.

 

Rolling Hills

A study in aerial perspective 8″x8″. Oil on linen.  This was a good study in depth.  I could have gone more blue with the farthest mountains, but it seemed to work this way also.  So I left it this way.
