Ironmen and Ironwomen

I wanted to get in to markers, but didn't really know where to start. The Iron Man drawings are with either sharpies (black and white) or Tul markers. They aren't very good markers and I really didn't understand that.

The final image was done with a full set of grey tone markers and despite being a copy of someone else's work, I am rather proud of the results.






Disney Cast Offs

I liked the idea of this painting, but lost interest. I will probably start over.



The last painting is oil paint, but with a knife instead of a brush. I really enjoyed the process despite not liking the results. 



That Horse Has Wacked Out Poo Brains, Part 2

More horse drawings and paintings. I find horses to be fascinating, but daunting as subject matter. The blue horse painting was done a Pinot's Pallet on our 15th anniversary. My wife also made a matching painting. There was no good classes that week, so I came up the the idea of incorporating a heart shape, a copy of a master and a horse. My wife had no idea what she was painting at the time.

Rough sketch for painting below.

I believe this is my wife's copy.

That Horse Has Wacked Out Poo Brains, Part 1

I like drawing horses. I have collection of Equine themed artwork in a variety of media.

Horse Skull, chalk and charcoal
The waterhorse was for my wife, Kitty, before I gave her the nickname "Kitty". In the front leg of the first image, you can see where I was trying to work in a "J" and an "E". I was flummoxed as to how I would get an "N" in there, so I abandoned that plan.

Not Working Out

The first is my most recent, a landscape of downtown Buffalo.


Prior to the landscape, I attempted a sky-seascape with a castle in purples. I didn't care for it and painted over it.





Stary Night - Copy of a Master

Several years ago, I tried to copy Starry Night. It was fun, but the end results were lacking.
