In the Studio

My Studio Paintings are a thought out well planned process. I enjoy taking time to visualize the outcome of every piece of my art be it an  illustration, oil or watercolor painting. I often place an unfinished painting in a place we’re I can study it while going about my daily routine. Like on the kitchen sink or next to the TV. Sometimes an idea will come with a passing glance and I’ll grab my painting and take it upstairs to my studio for the finishing touches.

 I also enjoy keeping my hand in life drawing and painting, a skill I developed in my teens and continue to this day.

i repainted this 1998 watercolor that i found in my garage. i guess time and experience is my best teacher. the extra heavily textured paper was given to me by an art supply dealer when i was an instructor for art materials trade shows.
