    July 10th Oil painting dump for 2012

    Getting prepared to return to Studio Escalier for the 12-week summer intensive. Oil sketches from the past few days, all from life:






    I'm very excited for tomorrow! There's much work to be done to fill this sketchbook up

    Still very much inspired by Avatar, but more abstracted.

    Updated many images with better photos of the paintings after they have been varnished.

    It's good to see that you've sold your paintings in etsy. It's hard for me to sell painting even in digital. I'm not a popular artist and my style is not embraced by the masses. I just don't know when I can work freelance...nice oils by you anyway and may more art to come.

    holy crap these are great! beautiful colours all round!

    Only thing I noticed is that your construction (well there's only 1 image that shows it) is very 2D... you map things out accurately on the canvas but don't define their shapes in 3D space, if that makes sense. It's great for observational drawing (similar to using a grid) but can get a bit tricky later on.

    then again, there's only 1 example of it, and I might be overanalysing.. it's late. it's just what i noticed looking at the 2nd and 3rd hand, they look a bit flat :p

    still, very awesome stuff

    zerdron - it's all about getting your name out there alongside your very best paintings. It takes a lot to stand out on the internet, whether it's etsy, ebay or conceptart.

    NeonDuck - thanks, construction and drawing are my biggest weaknesses

    A quick rose study before I figure out how to make a more finished still life painting:

    Hey Dark! Do you know Geoffrey Klepseis? He's gone to Escalier in the past too, I remeber him showing me your blog, been doing life drawing with him since September this year. I just applied for the fall intensive course at Escalier, hopeing for the best

    Keep up the studies there looks rad. Gona apply your studies to more stuff from imagination too? Been awhile

    Hey Dylan,

    Thanks for stopping by! I don't think I've met Geoffrey but I think he and I are both attending the Summer 2010 program at Studio Escalier. That's great to see you are applying to go too, I can't recommend Tim and Michelle highly enough

    Yeah I've been sticking to still lifes for a while, but you're right, I should be doing imaginative work too. I'll see what I can come up with today.
