Very nice work. The last couple have a great variety of line and texture. I am going to Italy in a few days and these images are getting me pumped to do some on location drawing.
Thanks for the comments.
lewiston - the top 2 were done en plein air and finished in the studio. The last painting was done in the studio from a smaller plein air piece and a photograph of the...
Some recent work. I have a lot more to show but it needs to get photographed. Comments and crits welcome.

"A Rocky Stream"
Hey Chris, nice work here. It's good to see you experimenting with the medium and not simply sticking to what you know. Out of the volleyball pieces I feel like "Red Cap" is the most successful; it...
maldrin - thanks for the info. Harold Speed's books are really cheap. I will probably end up buying both of the books you mentioned; I could use some reading material anyway.
Thanks for all the comments.
el coro - Haha, in regards to the subject matter, I know what you mean. The paintings were done as studies to experiment with paint application and to apply what I...
Nice work. I really dig the "Apocalypse Hydra" piece: an intense and effective composition. And I appreciate the phallic symbols.
Nice drawings, dude. Your observational skills have definitely improved, and it's nice to see you've still maintained the steak-tron flavor.
Really nice work. The second one is especially good.
Hey guys, long time no see.
"Two Barns" - This painting was done about 6 months ago.
10 x 13"
These paintings are a small portion of the work I've done in the last 3 months.
It looks like quitting your job was a very wise decision. Excellent draftsmanship and I'd imagine you could make a name for yourself in the world of portrait painting with work like this.
Nice work. This first 2 paintings are drastically better than the second 2 in composition, color, and paint quality. I imagine those are the most recent works?
Regardless, great work.
Thanks for the comments, guys.
DSillustration - that Lepage painting is beautiful and it's interesting that the emotion of the painting is captured entirely in the hands. They are painted...
Aveh - when I paint en plein air, I go out specifically to paint so I have all my gear.
Excellent work and I really wish I could see these in person. For the landscapes are you painting from photographic reference or do you paint on location? Do you paint studies for the final...
lewiston - these are all painted from life. Some are finished later in the studio.
Thanks for the feedback.
pitonisa - I didn't intentionally put a face in the rock painting, but it's interesting you saw one.
eric - the 4th and 6th paintings were alla prima. Number 4 took 4...
Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm glad you like the paintings.
timpaatkins - all of these are done en plein air and finished later in the studio, the only exception is the last painting. It was...
A few more paintings I just recently finished.
"girl under a tree"
33 x 44"
oil on canvas
This is a finished piece and it is awesome. Reminds me of European comics.
crits: the bottom left is dead space and needs to be activated with something. Even something as simple as cracks or...
This is a really cool project, coro. It's great to see you experimenting with various forms of visual communication: painting, concept art, storyboards, and now comics. I keep returning to the...
Thanks for the feedback, guys.
AlexC: I use the thick paper moleskines. I suppose you could say I'm a bit of a paper snob.
space-sprayer: It shouldn't matter whether the piece is created...
These are some of my recent landscapes. I was generally dissatisfied with the figure paintings I'd been creating, so I took some time off to play with paint and clear my head. Hopefully when I...
The drawing is easily the strongest of the three. The line quality and color of the drawing feels similar to old etchings. Very interesting.
very interesting works you have here and great edge control. i wonder, are these executed as stream of consciousness images, or do you have an idea before you begin the piece?
