Recent stuff

Time does fly since the last update. Monthly update seems to be working so far. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this rate. Below are some of the recent studies and experiments.

Start to paint on fire wood. A pack of 8 pre-cut pieces like this only cost about $5 at local hardware store.(5 1/2 x16 inches, 1 1/2 inch thick) Definitely a price tag for any starving artists out there. Just got to take a look and make sure there is no big crack down the middle before buying it.

Acrylic, about 2.5 hours with breaks.

Acrylic on 9x12 Masonite, about 2.5 hours with breaks.

Another fire wood piece. Gotto finish the pack.

Acrylic, about 2.5 hours with breaks.

For those of you who knows me well, when things start to seem repetitive something strange tends to find its way into my work. In this case, She-Hulk have made her appearance... *smile*

Acrylic, about 2.5 hours with breaks.

Switching gear and picked up watercolor for a quick head study. About 40 minutes. I gotto do more of it...

Another one of my "bare minimal" practice. Just trying to see how far I can go without using a palette to mix color. Two brushes, two jar of Latex house paint(white and brown), and a water jar for washing the brush. Took about 30 minute on construction paper of some random dude in my head...(No, not all random dude up there look like this. *smile*)

i really enjoy that you did this on construction paper - beautiful art on whatever is lying around! i love the strange colours you bring into your life paintings.

Alexis - Found objects are fun to work with. Since the shape, size and surface is always different, I always end up learning something new from working on them.

Watch out with masonite if you work in acrylic. Certain maker of masonite actually contain tiny amount of oil in them. Which means the painting will peel off after it is done. Better do some testing if the piece is something important.

Mike - Trying to. :)
