I have been experimenting a bit with style and medium lately. The first painting is styled after Mike Svob a Vancouver artist who I really admire. I love his unusual use of color and the subjects that he paints. I used acrylic for this one, something I haven't done a lot of recently. I pushed the envelope with color and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. The last painting is another in my tree series done in oil with the palette knife. I am really loving using the knife and am having fun with color and expression.
I was very honored to be asked to co-author this book available for sale as of August 2014 online and in many fine book stores. The book features the work of several fine artists as well as myself giving instruction on how to paint still life in acrylics. The book is beautiful and very helpful to anyone wanting to learn how to paint landscapes, still life and animals in acrylic and is full of great advice and lovely pictures explaining how to step by step.
