    Inspired by your sketch book I went out recently and bought some goache. Man you make it look so easy and its soooo not !!!!
    I've only ever painted with oils before and I found myself wanting the paint to behave in the same way and it just doesn't. So now having had a bash at goache, I'm even more in awe of your skill !

    heh, it's not skill really it's just trial and error. Thank you though. When your painting with them just think dark to light, paint the darkest areas first and then the midtones and then lightest lights towards the end.Pretty standard rule when dealing with opaques. It'll make it a lot easier for you. It's great to see your progress. Thanks for looking.

    Some older work from a show I had called "walkabout", from photo ref that I took. All painted with pallete knife.





















    and finally a better pic of one I started out with on my sketchbook.

    wow dood! That last one is awesome! great personality, and you got the whole figure in there. at first, I wasnt too hot on the line of her right theigh, but its kinda growing on me with each view...5 good looks later, and i think it works well with the drawing, it gives it some flow, makes it interesting. my only thing, is with a figure this cool, you should have done something either
    -with the background to direct the focus
    -with the focus, to direct the focus

    as in, bring some values in tighter or something. I really like it, but I keep looking at the shoes, and then thinking, "oh yeah, theres a girl." Would be good to use the background, or some more detail, or some more directional strokes or something to bring me up to the face, unless the shoes ARE the focus, then you should give me something reassuring to keep me there.

    lookin awesome man! i love it!

    Hmmm she's hot, is she a model at the live session? Would hate to get booted by her 4 inch platform shoes, and headbutted by her military helmet, but I think it would be so worth it to ask her out.....and get rejected.

    That's a great piece, I can already see a definitive clean style coming our way.

    Sok- Thanks bro, yeah it was from life, about 2 1/2 hrs, yet another model that I had a crush on. It would definitely be worth the risk. She's a fire dancer among other things. My kind of girl.
    I don't know about the style, it's an older piece, but if you can see it maybe it's there.
    Hope you make it to the life drawing session sometime, I think you'd like it. You already know alot of people there.

    I like those walkabout paintings alot. I think the first one is my favorite, the bird's eye view of the guy walking with a cup in his hand. How do you decide what color to put in the background? When I've done a few attempts at color work I never really know what to do with the background if it's just a solid color..

    i really like the way you handled the orange car truck vehicle jeep. how did you come up with your signature? is that an important thing in selling artwork?

    the last three show some real nice color harmony and interesting compositions... nice shapes all around. Are you going to SF for the workshop? Be cool to meet you and see some stuff in person.

    Jetpack- Heh, yeah I'm getting ahead of myself. Don't you know I'm living in europe these days.my watch was off and i was too lazy to fix it. Always know I can depend on you to keep me honest.
    Thanks bro, the orange truck was one of my favorites from that series. The signature thing, your going to get lots of different opinions about it( I got in a big argument with someone about in another thread), for me finding a signature that I like and that was recognizable helped me out a lot, I used to feel real self-concious about my writing so signing a piece was a real awkward thing for me, when I figured out something I liked and could put down easily it was a big load off my shoulders. I get compliments/comments on it all the time and people remember it, I work in a lot of different styles and it's one of the things that connects them all, I see other things as well stylistically and feeling wise but I'm a lot closer to the work. I'm really influenced by Egon Scheile and Gustav Klimt and other vienesse artists and a lot of them had a way of signing that was sort of a box style so I just picked it up.

    Cotron- Cody, Thanks bro, I don't think I'm going to be a the workshop, I'm moving across the country in a couple of months and it's going to tap me pretty good financially, I just got out of debt and I'm trying real hard not to go back there but we'll see. I'd really like to meet you too bro and a ton of other people here as well.

    Jp- We'll have a rematch someday, you been practising?? Been studying with some ping pong master??? I know there are going to be a lot of great painters there, alot of great artists in general, I'm just going to have to see where I'm at. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Jeff Jaws- Thank you, that ones called "new shoes" , she was cool, for this kind of stuff I take my own photo ref, some people just beg to be painted or drawn and she was one of them, she seemed really proud and I liked the color combination.

    I had a sale of my work a while back, actually 2 of them one in June and one in Oct., trying to lighten the load before I move. To me it was a revelation, I'm a packrat with my work and do a lot of it and it was just sitting there. When I finally had it I did really well and was able to pay off a lot of debt that had been hanging over me for a while. I know it's a little bit different for a lot of you guys cause you do a lot of things digitally but those of you that do things more traditionally I think this is a great way to go once or twice a year and maybe more. If your struggling with money this might help. Here are some pics from the sale, it's on a pretty large scale but threre's no reason this couldn't be done smaller, something to think about.



























    Please excuse some of the bad pics, this is just to give you and idea.

    Man you really outdone yourself. Those are all wonderful paintings, and the value is priceless. How much did you make during that sale?

    Sok- Thanks, Let's just say I did well, with both sales I sold a 150 paintings, 85 the first time and 65 the second, most of the paintings were priced between $25 to $500. The cool thing is I didn't really get rid of very much stuff that I was still attatched to and the things that I was attatched to I sold for a price that it wasn't as hard to see them go. I have a good friend who does online sales everytime she's trying to fund something...trips mostly for her but she also paid for most of her wedding doing stuff like this.
    Edit: Sok I forgot to mention that I also traded for an acoustic guitar, that was super cool.

    JP- Thanks , can't wait until you start showing.

    Liam- A long time, I graduated art school the first time in 86 and started showing my work in the early 90's till now. I've probably been in or had close to 50 shows in in the seattle area to a greater or lesser degree so the work piles up.

    One of the reasons I'm showing this to you guys is maybe you can learn from my mistakes and can make a little money as well.

    WOW !!! I've been baffled by the quantity and originality of your work so far and now it's great to see how you go about 'exploiting' your talent. Thank you so much for this insight. I had thought about selling art before (only a fleeting thought) but now you've given me reason to ponder the possibilities.
    Thanks Bojee, I'm a big fan of your art even if I don't post here often.

    Dennal Floss- Thanks bro, I hope you look into it, most of us have a lot of art hanging around and it's good to get it out there. For me it helps me get beyond that point, not to mention put some money in my pocket.

    Cotron- Cody, I probably average 3 to 7 paintings a week, give or take, more when I'm getting ready for a show.

    Madoliane- Thank you your very kind, I'd love it if you and Matt lived closer, It'd be fun to hang out with you guys, My art family is my closest family in many ways, they seem to understand a part of me that most people don't get. Age, gender,background don't seem to matter when you have such a strong commonality.

    Mentler- LOl, thank you I think,, I think you might like it, and maybe it could help fund some project you want to do, maybe for the school, or some trip you might want to take. It also creates more room for new stuff to happen. Try it you might like it. I'm sure your students would help or would love to own a piece of yours. Once it's in peoples houses that's free advertising for the school and yourself. People get sooo excited buying original art, it's a pretty powerful thing to come into their lives. It feels really good when someone tells me that the piece they bought from me was the first piece of original artwork that they've owned/bought. To me that's a really cool thing. With a sale like that someone who originally couldn't have afforded it before now can and a lot of times they are ones that I'd much rather have it.

    Eew- No offense taken, Scheile is a huge influence of mine, if anything I take it as a compliment. If you go up a few posts too I explain my signature, that's influenced from scheile as well. Sorry I missed you in the first reply we were posting at the same time.

    Influence from other styles exist everywhere, all you got to do is figure out what you want to say with it. I have lots of different artists that inspire me, some you can see more than others. Careful you don't get locked up on the style though, the idea behind it is more important and that can come out in many different ways. Thanks Good luck on your search, your sketchbook is showing nice progress.

    Jeebus Boj, your work is the shit! I normally don't go for abstractions but I've done changed my ways. Yessir! I don't see a cover-up of non-understanding at all, it's evident that you command your work. It's so full of compasion! Sure I'm a little drunk but that makes it all the more honest

    For real I woulda' bought one of those in a heartbeat. Great work bro!

    Steak- Thanks,I've got a long way to go. Not really tryin to cover up just tryin to distill it down to the essentials. Thanks bro, your opinion is always welcome, drunk or sober.

    Fuck! We should throw a HUGE party!

    I have an idea "Life drawing party" We can hire two models in one session just for you, but anyone can come and draw. I will handle the cost of the models. And call Megan, I haven't draw her in a while....maybe Lisa too?
    YES!

    lemme know the date you prefer.

    coffee! i actually like these a lot better with the charcoal than the brown bleedy pencils. the charcoal looks greenish next to the coffee and bleeds just enough.

    rusty- Jace thanks my friend, I'm definitely "not" more dedicated than you, just been working on it longer, as far as I'm concerned your way ahead of the learning curve. It just ebbs and flows just like for anyone. You've got the addiction though man and the dedication, you'll always come back to it. You'll have plenty of successes and plenty of failures especially if your taking risks with your work, all part of the process so don't let things like that competition get you down.
    The Walkabout show went really well, I also had street noises playing while the show was going on. Take care bro.
