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!)

A Quick Wave...

The Double Wave(8x10, oils, SOLD!)
A quick painting of some high surf in Jamestown, RI. I did this in about maybe 20-30 minutes, working fast with a palette knife. The color of the Atlantic and Pacific are entirely different colors of blue. The Atlantic is more viridian green and a "deep" almost scary color. I always have to remember this when painting. Paintings like this almost take no planning...they just kind of happen-a quick snapshot of nature. Others however take a great deal of planning.

Love how your waves are breaking. Very natural. None of that Hawaii beach market stuff.
