They won't stay still!

Painting Willhoites the local biker hangout in Grapevine, but it's not easy when
your subjects keep riding away. I tool a cell phone picture because I anticipated this,
but the final result is probably a mishmash of the real bikes. I will post the final painting asap.
I'm not sure what I'm doing with that little brush. I paint most of my work with a
size 6 to 8 flat brush. You can get into trouble picking up the little ones. Your always
better off abstracting the form down to it's essence and minimizing the little stokes.
Paint as much of it as possible with the largest brush you can.
cliff notes...
Big brush = good
Small brush = bad


Fall Weather and Time to get Working!

9 x 12 oil

  The weather is cooling off in Texas and it's time to get some plein air work done. This is my favorite time of the year. I have to admit that I have done less plein air painting this year than when I started painting about seven years ago, but that doesn't mean I haven't been painting.I have ramped up my studio work and have been painting larger too.

  I am finally in a place in my mind where I want to find more representation. I have been putting this off to get my work up to a consistent level and I think I'm ready. I definitely have been my biggest collector so far and that's not a good thing. Wish me luck!
