satire portrait

heres a satire portrait of George Pratt for illustration, I tryed his pen&ink/wash/varnish technique out for this. it was a lot of good fun making it. enjoy

fresh plein air

some new ones from this past weekend. had a lot of fun with all these, i started using a brush again and completly changed my palette =D !

i did two sunset ish paintings at these fun little trails i found at lido beach, they both started fun, then ended more fun as i couldnt see what colors i was mixing up because it was too dark, and my fingers were freezing.

teal and i go fishing here and i always thought the boat's masts in front of the backlit trees look pretty cool, so i painted them.
this one was really fun, i was scared to drive that morning as i couldnt see 10 feet in front of me. but when i got to the site, it was worth it, it stayed pretty foggy throughout the whole painting so that was good.
this one was a place i found by mistake. i was looking to get into this park with a lake, but the gate was closed because i was there too early, so i turned around and found a dirt road that took me to this scene. i started painting it, and then this huge fun cloud came storming over the trees, and i painted it quickly as it was only there for 20 to 30 seconds.

back from spring break

just got back from the best spring break I have ever had, started off the week with the Orlando museum of art to see a Rockwell exhibit, which was amazing and eye opening, then went to islands of adventure and universal studios for FREE =) then spent the next three days plein air painting with my girlfriend, went to this awesome mill/pancake restaurant, ate some bomb ass fish made by teal's chef brother kyle, made some very tasty tacos, played with 3d drawing, chilled, played a whole lotta guitar and harmonica, filled a sketchbook with blind contour drawings and sketches, then drove down to Miami to hang out with my mom, ate at Versailles, then the rusty pelican the next day, and drove back here, where my awesome break came to a crashing end. my apartment flooded while i was gone, and i just got done cleaning up the mess =\

just scanned in some sketches and some figure stuff from last week. ill put up the paintings when they are dry.
