Studying the Masters


















Throughout history, artists have copied works of the masters to improve their skills and study the past.

Besides my own sketches, I also have copied and learned from the masters. Two of my sketches are graphite on cartridge paper (Hals and an unknown artist). The third sketch is graphite and watercolor on cartridge paper after Durer. The painting is watercolor paint on watercolor paper. It is based on a sketch I did of a woman and altered for artistic purposes.

New Painting - A Different Perspective




A Different Perspective,
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
on wood stretcher bars,
25.5 by 30.6 by 1.9 cm, 10 by 12 by 0.75 inches,

I was attracted to the explosion of water and waterfall behind the rocks in the foreground.

Light & Shadow- Rose in Movement


Rose in Movement
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
on wood stretcher bars,
25.5 by 30.6 by 1.9 cm, 10 by 12 by 0.75 inches,

I was attracted to the lyrical movement of the flower’s petals. It was hard to make cast shadows from one petal onto other petals; form shadows on concave petals, and form shadows on convex petals. There was no cast shadow from the rose onto the ground. It was difficult for me to capture the light and darks of this image but with help from friends, I hope I was successful in achieving that goal.
