I will just pretend that today is Works-In-Progress Tuesday! I will blame it on the craziness of the Holiday Season.
Anyway – I am continuing to work on 4 Mische technique paintings while planning the drawings for a few more. I was busy painting some feathers and eggs for the ‘All Paintings Great & Small’ exhibition at Cooley Gallery in Old Lyme. They sold 4 paintings during the opening night including the feather and the egg painting I did for the show. So I started painting a few more – delivered them to the Gallery last week. Now I really have to focus on paintings for the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition just right around the corner in February.
I seem to be all over the place with paintings in all stages of work so without any further ado – here is what I am working on – (all images from iPhone so not so great)
Mallard – on final oil glazes
Emmylou in a Basket – final oil glazes
Yellowstone Squirrel – final oil glazes
Buffalo – final oil glazes
Works on Vellum
Pronghorn Antelope – on goatskin vellum
Great Blue Heron feather – sketch ready to be transferred to a piece of vellum
And for something completely different –
a miniature of a Lipizzaner stallion in the exercise ring of of the Piber Stud Farm in Austria
painted in gouache
