As I am apt to do, I have more than one piece in the works at the moment. The first is a marriage of my love for flowers and wildlife, particularly what looks like cuddly and innocent animals, which are, in reality, dangerous. I performed some magic in PhotoShop, blending a photo of a grizzly bear with that of some vibrant orangish-red poppies. Thank you to Angeline Rijkeboer from pmp-art.com for the bear photo and Una C Williams from pmp-art.com for the poppy photo. I also added in some whimsical butterflies from my own collection of photos. I can’t wait for this to be finished! Video to be uploaded soon.
The piece is made on Strathmore Bristol Vellum, 14×17, using Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils.
For my second piece, I have been asked to complete a large format painting of Las Vegas. Off to a great start – and I’m really excited about this one! I already feel as if it’s going well and will be a unique and vibrant painting that I won’t be able to take my eyes off of.
The stretched canvas measures 30″H x 40″W, and I am painting with Golden Heavy Body Acrylics and some Liquitex Basics. Video to follow – stay tuned! July 2017
