    Bill's Work

    Stingray 3013

    Lepidoptera and the Frog

    This is a digital and oil painting hybrid. I scanned an abandoned oil painting I did years ago, brought it into Photoshop and removed a chipmunk from the log and added a digitally painted sprite. The original oil was reworked in PS throughout.

    dpaint – Thanks.

    Here are some oils, painted over 10 years ago, just before my digital conversion. My goal now is to get back into oils with a looser technique.

    Chickens – 2000
    (My last oil painting before going digital)

    Eye of the Tempest – 2000

    Inspiration for the gull was this photo of a gull I shot on a wall waiting for a feeding opportunity at the Philadelphia zoo.

    Alpha Pair – 1998
    The background was softened in PS on this one.

    Cloud Shadow – 1998

    eagle.jpg

    The inspiration for the eagle portrait was from this bad candid photo I shot at a zoo of a rescued eagle with flight inhibiting permanent wing damage.

    Hey Bill, Good to see you setting up a finally finished thread. It's about bloody time! Lol.

    Love the colours and sky in the first one. In fact, I love your colours throughout but I might already have mentioned that elsewhere. Oops.

    Fantastic work as always. Thanks for sharing and I hope you post more new stuff soon.
