First Friday Follow Up


This past Friday I was back at The Art Box in Charlottesville to demo "Painterly Prints"!  Below is a quick and easy project idea that I demo'd, and if you want a more hands-on experience with printing - I've recently added my Painterly Prints workshop to the Fall schedule, visit my workshops page for more details!


New Oil Paintings!

 I've finished some new birds and they are available in my shop!  Both measure 10x10 inches and are done in oil on wood...

Northen Cardinal, Oil on Wood, 10x10 inches


Micronesian Kingfisher, Oil on Wood, 10x10 inches



New Iridescent Texture Video!

For those of you that are texture lovers, I put together a new instructional video on how to create this surface:

If you have my book, you may recognize this as being similar to the "Fence Post" project...

I wanted to show another way to use color with my book textures in lieu of following the exact recipe!  If you don't have my book, you can pick up a print or ebook copy at or in person at one of my upcoming events!  In the meantime, enjoy!:


New Color Mixing Video

I started doing a new series of demos at my local art store, and I thought it would be fun to share a follow up video on some of the ideas shared at these demos for those who couldn't come or are at a distance!  The first in this video series is now up on my YouTube channel and you can also view it below:

For those that want to go more in-depth with color mixing recipes, I'm hosting a full day Color workshop at my studio on Friday Sept 30...visit my workshops page for more info!

Be sure to "stay tuned" for the next First Friday demo video and other instructional videos throughout the Fall!



New Bird Painting!

I've been having so much fun playing with my oil paints, and this week just about finished a new bird!

I've also been playing around more with video and put together a three minute vid showing the beginnings of this painting which can be viewed below and on my YouTube channel:
