Recent paintings

Hey all, here are some recent paintings I did. Enjoy. The first one was inspired by the work of this artist, though it might not look like it. I started with a sketch in orange and then I did the lines on top. This watercolor painting is from the Southwest Airline magazine I got on my trip down to San Diego. This creature was a piece I did while teaching one of my classes at a Youth Center in San Francisco. The animals were suggestions by the young adults I work with. The pirate was drawn completely in watercolor, starting with some blue constructions lines that are still there. The cats and parrot were done with patches of color and then the outlines were drawn on top of those.

    I like the ape the most. The pirate doesn’t really look that pirateish to me – more like an army soldier (?). And his toughness is totally undermined by the kitties. 🙂

    Thanks Peg. The government keeps Pirates in line by subjecting them to kitties, didn’t you know.

    so your link to “this artist” doesn’t seem to be working. Oh… it’s all really well done. Thanks for sharing it. (sorry, I usually lurk so I’m not sure what to say.)

    Thanks for the heads up Mimi. The link is fixed.
