Plein Air Painting

It was very overcast that day but I was determined to paint outside. this was halfway though the painting. All these paintings to me are gateways to what I will do for as long as I can. Plein air to me is the mack daddy of painting. It shows your whole process of doing a painting in one hour, give or take.

Plein Air Painting at Wolfcreek

I stocked up on paint and I bought a lot of canvases. From now on I'm not going to hesitate on globbing the paint on the canvas. I think its a lot easier to paint this technique with a lot of paint and space.

my new studio for the christmas break and for this summer.

This apartmant is above an old Dollar Store that was in production a couple of years ago. Now below serves as an antique warehouse for my fathers adictions. Here are some views of it.

still llifes in the past

These still lifes are just some that I have done over the last couple school days at Ringling.

I did the pen drawing from life and the color from memory. An excercise I am workin on.


the hat was a pure scratch project. It was my first board and there was no piliminary line to start from, I just started scratching away the light. With the brushes I tranferd a drawing with white pastel. To me, the pastel white go in the way of the value, so I wiped it away halfway threw the peice.

my parents were going to throw out this metal bench, so I took on the challenge of bringing it back to life and them some. I sanded and grinded it in most of the major areas. the curved braces under the seat are hand beaten out of steel rod, same with the spiral. The feet were created from a blacksmith forge.....piece in progress.

this is the studio at Avenue B.

this is a huge close up, simple stokes and paint application.

im doing a series of paintings for my mom with a lot of blue and tropical content. This one is still in progress.
