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!!

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!)

More ocean....

Coastal Assault(8x10,oils, SOLD!) Like I said, I'm into the ocean alot now. In the background of this is some crumbling tower, built untold years ago for some castle and now just crumbling into the sea, as the waves pound relentlessly away. I kinda made up the image, just from wanting to paint the ocean from memory. Painting from memory is a great way to make things really have your own special feel to them, and romantic mood. Painting ocean is like creating the best happy accidents, whilst at the same time following a general structure to a wave.
