landscape painting

Here are a few of my landscape paintings from the last year. These were all done on location in about two hours. Plein air painting is so much harder than it looks, but it is a lot of fun to be out there enjoying the weather and the views. I envy the artists that can do this full time.

These are charcoal drawings that I did last year while studying with Kamille Corry, a classical realist painter and very good teacher.

It's just very tedious and time consuming.

Art Challenge: Saruman

I now have a blog.

Due to popular demand, (actually just one very persuasive friend, Ryan Wood) I now have a blog.
