After a four year hiatus, I am finally taking up some painting, in addition to my sketches and writing. Thanks in no small part to Bob “Happy Trees” Ross and James Gurney of Dinotopia fame, I’ve been inspired to take up the brush once more. After some practice I’ll even start selling paintings, but for now I’m still experimenting.
The two projects I have at the moment are below. You can click to enlarge the pictures. Both are acrylics painted on thick card stock, 5 inches by 7 inches.
Trees and boulders. Not as good as I hoped for, but it’s my first attempt for a long time. Hopefully I’ll get better. Took about 3 hours to do.
A very incomplete picture of snow-draped peaks. Rather fitting, given the first snow of autumn showing up today. It will be completed soon. So far it has taken about 2.5 hours.
Hope you all have a wonderful day! 🙂
Finally managed to get some new drawings done and scanned. Hope your all enjoy them! I really love drawing, and plan to make it a habit again. Dinosaurs and plants seem to be two of the things I do okay with.
Triceratops. Long time since I’ve drawn this beautiful animal.
Just some flowers. No particular species; I just made them up.
And don’t forget, ladies and gentlemen: tomorrow, at 4:04 pm Mountain Time, the transit of Venus will take place (where the planet passes in front of the sun). This won’t happen again until the early 22nd century. So, yeah. Watch it if you can.
Catch you all later! If you will excuse me, I have some editing to quit putting off. This novel’s going to be finished soon, one way or another.
