    Icon Fine Art

    I was just brave enough to post in the finished section for my illustration work. Now I'm also getting the guts to post my fine art works which are considerably different. Most the time I was working from photos and that was pretty difficult. As you will see with my Halloween piece I started to set up still lifes in order to make life a little easier and get more paintings done.

    I did go to school for 4 years for illustration and had plenty of life drawing classes. However that is not enough in my opinion. Expect to see more posts following this of still lifes that will hopefully allow me to make greater improvements in skill and knowledge at a faster pace.

    I look forward to all your crits. I am tough, I can handle the good and the bad. After all, is that not the point of these forums? Also, some of these are still in progress, so I am able to go back and tweak as need be.

    Courthouse and Halloween

    These are 2 of the latest ones. The courthouse was oils on watercolor paper which I primed with a few coats of lead white so the paint would not soak in as easily.

    Also the Halloween piece is a still life, in oils on a 12x16 inch canvas.
    The only medium use was turps, which is odd for me since I normally work with a mixture of turps/linseed oil/damar varnish.

    Anyways, please let me know what you think. I'm open to suggestions : )

    thanks

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for posting. I find your traditional work refreshing. You may want to limit your values a bit, maybe work out a stronger value pattern in the beginning.

    I was also an illustration student and spent 9 years in school. It definitely takes more than 4 years. It takes what it takes (:


    Thanks again for posting, I was also freaked out when I started posting. I look forward to seeing more.

    This one is beautiful!!!

    Hi Raileyh,


    Thanks for the feedback. Color is still a bit tricky for me, more so when working from photos. I am really considering doing more monotone paintings
    and than working with glazes and finish the piece off with opaque high lights.
    Also, I need to get outside and directly paint. That would help a lot.

    I like your treatment and brush strokes, especially the bright blue.
    Yes, some of them are very narrative.
    Good Luck.

    Church tower in Lancaster

    Here's a recent painting I did. It was created in very little spare time while waiting for feedback that I sent off to a publisher on any final edits to my illustration work.
