marker sketch


I am planning on doing a workshop on drawing this summer, I have been just doing some to warm up. I feel that in order for me to improve the quality of my paintings these are a very good exercise. The problem is..............I can't paint like this!

Man eating peanuts


I have this cool new camera with a little chip that slips into one of those slots. hold like 600 high quality pics. the chip is like $15.00 Remember waiting for prints from the photo shop, was that a life time ago or what?

I think this is about sharing.

Think Happy Thoughts


"Son, there are a lot of things in this world that you are going to have absolutely no use for." I am having fun with my new bug buddies. I left the doors to my "studio" open and the lights on to welcome them. I wander around my garden searching for subjects. Anyone watching me would surely think "Hehold, a man searching for bugs to paint in his "studio"" . I feel the cheery name helps to compensate for the subject.

This subject was a fun study, and agreeably a "chancy" subject. This is my cat on my dock. I just practiced painting shapes.

KDH Cooperative Painting Workshop







If you are one of the 8 people taking my painting workshop on April 20 & 21, listen up.

I want you to bring your own photographs to paint. Bring several. When you are making the selection of those photo's, think in terms of 2 dimensional flat design. Use a critical eye and decide if what you want to paint would look like a pleasing design in black and white. If you are using a digital photo, (hopefully) crop the photo to have the same proportions as your canvas before you print it. I think this will make the workshop more rewarding. If you have sketches, please bring them also. I hope this is self explanatory. I am looking forward to meeting you. If you have any questions call me. Bring at least 2 canvases with you.

Sincerely,

Rick
