Tested, old barn after a storm


"Tested"

This one started as a demonstration for a beginners class last spring.  Love the mood it sets. 

My demos are done for follow-along classes.  Sometimes we use my pictures, or pictures that my students bring in. Sometimes we use art books or calendars.  We do not copy exactly from the image.  We move things around.  I encourage them to use their own colors, add more trees, flowers, birds, or whatever they want.  I love they way they all look a little different at the end of class.

Paradise at Sunset, Florida landscape with wildlife

"Paradise at Sunset"

This painting is the second in a series I started this summer.  I created them both from memory.  The animals are free-handed onto the canvas after I practice drawing them on paper first.  This time I reversed things and brightened the sky. Also included deer, egrets, turkey, hogs, and a gator. This is a truly original painting.  Most of mine are (unless I am doing one for a client that wants something from their photos).  I use my own images and /or my own sketches and free-hand everything.  Many artists today copy from photos, literally.  They get enlargements trace it off -- and sometimes it is not even their own photos!  You can read more about that by clicking here.
