Something Fishy

Something Fishy

Something Fishy is a 10″ x 7″ watercolor on Fabriano extra white hot press watercolor paper.  Omar Rayyan kindly provided the paper to me to try out at DragonCon. It’s smooth, bright surface is a challenge to my usual procedure as the pooled watercolor drifts and dries differently.

What’s In Yer Wallet is a 12″ x 9″ watercolor on Arches Cold Press paper. Begun on my travels to the Beaufort Pirate Invasion and completed at DragonCon.  The reference came from a photo session in my studio some years ago when I was gathering research for a National Geographic illustration.

” My Prince Hath Croaked”   an oil 15″ x 10″ began out as a field study as well at a spot found about a mile from my studio. While I worked, an otter bounced past me and splashed through the water in the foreground and into the culvert behind the figure.  I had a photo shoot with a model soon after beginning the painting and one of the poses struck me as a perfect addition to the scene.

This 11″ x 14″ oil painting was begun several years ago as an exercise during an art Master Class I experienced. The premise was to sketch a scene on location, then use it later as a setting which would include a featured wild life subject. I recently decided this field painting would be perfect backdrop for a different sort of wild life experience. These on location,  or plein air paintings, add authenticity not found using photo research in a studio environment.
