    Thanks for the tips on drawing people in public considerately. It's something I've been nervous about doing for the reasons you've listed, but I'll be giving it a shot now.

    Roark, Oil, 11 x 14 inches

    You may remember my last painting of Roark in a knit cap and long hair that I posted back in March. Well, he shaved his head and he hardly looks like the same person.


    Thanks stroan and Mr.Ebony for the comments!

    Very nice - I really like the way you define the planes of the face in your portraits. Also, I tried your method of sketching in public and nobody came over to tell me I was creeping them out, so thanks!

    Nice colors, nice brush strokes, nice edges, nicely captured characters - i like it!

    Maybe this has been asked before, but do you use a medium to achieve smoothness?

    Oh and great post on drawing in public - should be a sticky It's funny because as I was reading it I was agreeing with everything and I kinda was already using those principles but I haven't thought about them before. Like starting to draw something else or at least faking it when the subject starts showing interest in you. I do the same thing hehe. Little mind games

    This is the first of what I hope to turn into a series of paintings based on energy sources. I hope this piece contributes, in some small way, to enthusiasm for clean energy and other dialogue about solutions to big problems.

    I also encourage anyone supportive of clean energy to visit the Department of Energy's Green Power Network to find out if there is a supplier of clean energy in your area. Many people don't even realize that they can easily sign up to purchase their electricity from clean sources for a near negligible increase in price.

    But wait, there's more!
    I've also created a video so you can watch the process of creating the painting! In the video I quickly flip through the rough, preliminary planning stages and then you can watch me paint the whole piece in stop-motion. This is the first video I've ever made and isn't really meant to be an instructional video, but hopefully it's fun to watch the process. It compresses many weeks of planning and about ten days of painting time into three and a half minutes. I usually work section to section because it allows me to work "wet into wet" as much as possible without the paint drying.

    I recommend selecting HD quality and watching it full screen to see the details of what's going on.





    Thanks thesimplylife, andrewg2442, Mashach, and z01ks for the comments! I'm glad my post on sketching in public is useful to people. To z01ks, I usually just use plain linseed oil for a medium. It adds fluidity, which can be smoothness, but it can also be muddiness depending on how it's used.

    Wow . . . that's awesome. The portraits are nice, but this fantasy stuff (that I assume you spend a lot more time on) is so good. The wet-into-wet look is quite nice, and somehow you manage to keep things very clean . . . ?!

    P.S. Any chance we can see some progress shots? Do you do a preliminary drawing first?
