    These are some newer oil paintings. I haven't posted in a long time here, and wanted to put a few new things up.

    These oil paintings are gorgeous. I love how everything almost feels like it's "moving", ya know? Like all the elements are in motion. I think it's the brush strokes. Very beautiful work!

    Beautiful work, the brush work has a kinetic energy that really brings the work to life. I can't help but feel that work also creates a feeling of suspense in the viewer.

    Hey... Thanks again. The process is pretty simple. I shoot a lot of photo-reference and then pick/choose what speaks to me. I collage it together into the image I want to make and then paint or adjust (stretch, cut, etc...) as needed. Following that, I grid it to a gessoed panel and then paint from the reference image I made. I enlarge some of the areas in different print-outs if I need to see them and add more detail to those areas.

    With tha painting, I use only walnut oil and a pretty simple palette. It's typically something like viridian green, ceurelan blue, pthalo blue, cad red, cad yellow, yellow ochre, alizeran crimson, raw umber and titanium white. For brushes, it's usually flats, but I use many different types.

    Thanks again for looking.
