New Fabric Study

Posted on June 8, 2018

WIP: I’m going to have some sari fabric studies up at my friend’s business for the West Seattle Art Walk next month. Most of the fabric studies I have done are small, so I’m working on a bigger piece to help fill the walls. Once this is dry, I’ll paint the pattern.

New Project

I had a great photo shoot with the lovely Patrick Daniels┬álast night for a painting that I’ve been thinking a lot about for nearly nine months. It’s time to give birth to this thing!

Moving Super Slowly Through the Grisaille

Wow. I really thought that I would have had finished this painting by now, but the migraines are really holding me back. I pushed through a migraine and got a little grisaille done on this figure.

Painting Fur

I was really looking forward to painting this vest! I don’t know why, but some things are more fun to paint than others.

Shag Carpeting

Posted on May 17, 2018

I had to figure out how to paint shag carpeting in an underpainting today and it was actually rather tricky. It took me a long time, with many starts and restarts, and near the end it occurred to me that no Old Master had to figure out how to paint shag carpeting! I was feeling pretty damn good about it, until I remembered that they figured out to paint skin. I think I’ll stop patting myself on the back now.
