The Jazz

As a huge NBA fan I have drawn lots of basketball players, but not for a long time. So I thought I would celebrate the start of the season with a portrait of some Utah Jazz players. I originally was going to exaggerate the caricatures more but they ended up more idealized. But these guys have been playing well so they got the flattering treatment.

Yellow Leaves

Probably the last plein air of the season, unless I decide to go paint in the snow.

Recent Oil Sketch

This is my son in his favorite spot in front of the TV. That day he wasn't feeling well so he actually stayed still enough for me to paint him. It also helped that he fell asleep halfway through the movie.

Latest Plein Air

Considering the ruthless onslaught of insects that my freind Steve and I had to endure while we were painting, I think we both did all right. Hard to go wrong with Aspen trees. I think I got all the bugs picked out of the paint.

Star Wars Fun

The topic over at the Avalanche Blog was "stupid Star Wars characters." I don't think she's stupid, but the fact that she wore about 37 different hairstyles per movie made no sense.

Here's something to make me feel old. It has been 20 years since The Joshua Tree was released. Oh well, Bono is older than me and he's still cool. (I think)

This is for the Avalanche Blog. The theme is Rock Star.

Also this was done using ArtRage, which I just discovered. I don't know if I would use it for professional work, but it sure is fun. They have a free download and if you want the full verion it's only $20. Check it out.
