pushing paint.

So the studio has been a great place to be and I will soon be spending even more time there. So look for more posts and new images. Check these out from this past weekend.
This is just at the pencil stage of the project which will be in large a monochromatic piece. 

This in my first shot on a fuzzy critter in paint. Lots of fun and a great challenge.

I feel like I should explain this. It came from a silly sketch made during an event at the museum.

for the coloring book project.

Weekend in the studio.

Two days of manic creativity and squishing paint. I am now sleepy and bespeckeled with various colors of acrylic paint. Seven paintings in one state of finished or not and I still have tomorrow to paint before I go and teach my drawing dinosaurs class at the museum.

From the field in almost 8 years ago.

This is a picture of the dreadnoughtus while still all jacketed up in the field waiting for the flatbed truck and front end loader so that it could all start its travels to the USA. There was a press embargo on the animal so I have been waiting to send this stuff out to everyone.


So this is Dreadnoughtus. It is a large painting 3 feet by 4 feet. Which is a size that I enjoy working in. it lets me get into details which I might gloss over if I was working smaller. The size also makes me keep it loose longer. The two previous images show some of the details I like about this image.
Sorry for the long delay. It has been a while since I have had a working studio space. Any how that is not now the case. You should expect to see a lot more art from me starting now.
This is a fun pen/ink and watercolor sketch that I love for the simplicity. The next post is of Dreadnoughtus which I helped dig up and prepare. The illustration is acrylic on canvas.
