The Descent Series

Another Descent Series piece.


For those who may be interested, I start with a drippy big brush sketch, then refine just enough to try and hit the sweet spot.

This quick little guy was inspired by a kind offer by Mary of Oil Pastels by Mary when she posted photos of geckos and lizards on her blog.

Mary works amazing painterly magic with oil pastels, a medium which has always been for me, completely confounding!:) Mary is also a lovely, supportive blogger friend. Thank you Mary!

The Descent series.

You’ve seen all of the watercolors below already.  I painted them one afternoon a few weeks ago.  By dinner time, the wall of my studio looked like this. I’m looking forward to starting another batch very soon.

Irascible Grackle

The grackles are back in impressive numbers.  I’m constantly mesmerized by their iridescence and shrewd behavior.  One particular grackle inspired this watercolor. He puffed up in the cool breezes, holding firm his territory and warning his rivals to stay clear.

Strolling Backwards And Forwards

Welcome back!  Good to see you.

I’ve enjoyed my break, making new work and reorganizing my cyber space.  I’ll be dropping by your space very soon.

Just to keep things fresh, I’ll be posting a little more often, but with less scheduled regularity. Today’s sketch is one in a series of very quick watercolor figure sketches, inspired by old family photos.  I’ve been digging into the past, mining subtleties that influence the present.  I hope you’ll enjoy following along with my efforts.

It’s good to be back!
