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!)

Primal Force....

The Chasm(8x10,oil SOLD!)Imaginative, little painting that came together *like that*. I'm no slouch in saying I am a fan of Fredric Church and others who painted romantic landscapes. This one piece inspires me to do something bigger. It came out wonderful, I achieved what I set out to do. I'm doing more imagined and romantic 'scapes. The idea is to make the landscape look better than it does. I used really thin oils, lots of Neo Megilp and, all done with a 1" filbert brush! The nice part about working with one size brush is it teaches you to be creative just bits of the edge of the brush and getting the information down as fast as possible. Whether a landscape is here on earth or on another planet...the fundamentals of a good painting still all are in play.
