More painting being painted

in process, a new beginning

Currently I am working on several pieces at a
time as I find that oil painting encourages such action. I am enjoying the prospecting from one journey to the next.
My mind is filled with so many ideas that this is as the saying goes a perfect way to get them down on paper.

Tomorrow I will begin yet another painting. This will be a ballerina.

In any event I'd like to share with you so here are some of my advancements/journeys.

Did I forget to mention I am also working on quite a few commissions.

almost done.

Today's Painting Advancements??!!

Well I'm working it.

Amongst mixed achievements and contradictory failures a painting is born.
I know this all takes time and I'm actually enjoying the growing pains,as pleasant and unpleasant as they may be.

So here they are still in progress. Not quite ready for total public consumption....but enough for a taste.

Another new painting

I'm learning that oil painting takes time. One must be patient and let the paint dry.... enough to continue to work on it so colors won't compromise each other... turn into mud.

So I work on a few pieces at a time.

Here's a new one. The current model in my workshop is a armour clad man.

The model actually designs renaissance gear.... mail, leather ware and archery goods.

It's going to take some time for me to really get his armour to shine but I will get there. I've already put aside my first "attempt", painting and started this one.

So here he is Mr. Loveduck Leather
I will go out into the studio this afternoon and continue my quest.

New Ideas New Images

Today I have decided to start a new series. It will be called the Masked series.
Please check out my old posts for more works I've completed in the near past. Click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this post.

I'm going to have some fun here and paint people and animals masked.

So here's the first one. I started working on it this morning and am using oil paint on wood. I may add some gold leafing toward the end.. we'll see

It's not done yet...
