The Cycle

This is another one of my recent commissioned paintings...  It's an acrylic on canvas.. 16x20... I have painted cars and people but never a bicycle and lets say both the bike and the helmet were my challenges with this piece!  But it turned out well in the end.

Back to the Studio

Well after not being overly busy in the studio lately due to all sorts of other things in life... I finally have  been working on several new pieces.  This is a portrait of two sweet little girls I recently did.. a surprise birthday gift for the mom by the family.  I really enjoy doing portraits although they can be a bit stressful at times.. people are one of my favorite subjects to create artwork from.  This was a pencil drawing on bristol paper (had just gotten a new pad of 2 sided recycled paper that has a smooth and slightly more toothy side - i accidently started on the smooth side and blending was a bit of a challenge! but it turned out ok in the end)  a few accents of charcoal and light watercolor wash finished it off.
