Two men chatting

This was a very quick and loose painting! I like it though. I am going to try a different interpretation!

People have been asking me about the donkey and what it is doing in the painting! So, just to relieve the mystery, it is a chair!!

Trees and snow

This was done on Hot-pressed paper. This type of paper is very tough to handle, and the colors, for some reason, kept on fading on me. I had to be patient, but I like the final result!

Starboard at low tide

This is from a picture I took last September. I printed the picture in gray scale so I can create my own colors. This is a little different style than what I usually do. I used a more realistic approach, however, I still used red, yellow, and blue. I did not use any blacks or browns. I tried to depict the haze in the midday sun! The dark values are a mix of prussian blue, aureolin, and rose madder! I might try this again in my usual colorful style. Make sure to enlarge the picture so you can appreciate the details!

Conte Crayon

This is a trial with Conte crayons of my favorite model. I think it looks good for a start!

Sunrise over Jasper

When I first did this, it looked great! However, after the color dried up, I felt I might have rushed through it.
