Bob's ART du Jour

Hi, I'm Bob Eggleton and this is my painting and "life in general blog" but mostly paintings. Usually they're for sale. Anyway, if you like something contact me at and ENJOY!!

My Photo
Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Meanwhile..still in England

Ghost of Constable(SOLD!) This is a view from the train, going up the coast to London, from Torquay. It's "Around Newton Abbot". Again, the clouds in the UK are purely Constable. I actually couldn't believe it as much as I was seeing it!! Sketching, and taking pix was the way I recorded most of it. Maybe when I can I will go back and stay for abit, painting on location. Clouds make for paintings that are joys to paint, and this little gem was no exception. Soon, however, I'll show you what happens when paintings go WRONG.

Thanks Julie...this for me is a way "out of the box". You know I hate artist-pigeonholing. That just destroys creativity, so this is a way out as it were, of that kind of being painted into a corner.
