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:

First Fridays at The Art Box in Charlottesville

Starting this Friday and on every First Friday for the rest of the year, I'll be hanging out at The Art Box in Charlottesville from 3-5pm doing a series of free table demos. Each month has a theme and for September it's Color Mixing 101!

Come learn about why colors do what they do and pick my brain about color recipes! Stay for a few minutes or the whole time, these are informal events (not a lecture format) so no need to register.  Also, I will have copies of my book to sell if you haven't already picked yours up!  I hope to see you there!



Bird in Progress: Micronesian Kingfisher

In preparation for my online workshops, I've been playing around with more video shoots and set up a YouTube channel!  Here is a two minute timelapse video of an oil painting I started last week:



And this is where I ended up by the end of the video:


Stay tuned for more videos and paintings as I build a new body of work! :)
