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!)

Clouds in a Blue Sky

Torquay(8x11, oil $100)
Here's an 8x11 inch painting, I did based on sketches and photos from my trip to Torquay, UK, back in October for Brian Lumley's convention(a total blast btw) Known as the "British Riviera" it had some fairly amazing clouds and weather. I can see where John Constable got it from. There is nothing like an English sky or landscape. I took lots of pictures, as the weather changed so fast that, painting on site was pointless. I could paint clouds forever if I had to. Constable sure did a fine job of it, and his work is one of my inspirations.
