Drapery Study

Oil on Panel, 24" x 18". Really happy with the sense of depth and the shoulder drapery, sadly this was a female model, but I imagined her as an elderly greek male instead. All together this painting took about six hours.


So I had to do a quick painting in one of my classes.. and is what came to be..


Done in Illustrator and Painter X, Illustration done for the song 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails (or Cash). Looks a lot better as a tiff file, let me know what you think!


Painted in Corel, tribute to N. C. Wyeth! learned a lot from this work.. Painter X is amazing, more digital paintings to come!

Watercolor and ink.. not sure what to say, thought of a girl riding a giant fish

Lets Get To Work

Currently looking for a new part time job.. I really don't enjoy looking for a new job. Watercolor, Painter 11, Photoshop.

What has been lost

This project has been difficult. I wanted to create a purely photorealistic hand, which is much harder then I had expected it to be. The composition remained almost exactly the same as the original sketch, which seemed to have worked out very well; all the lines lead directly to the skin which the hand is offering to the stencils. I once again used metal wire to link the skin to the stencil, this time in a more staple-ish way.

Humans are constantly distancing themselves from what they are actually doing, and instead finding the most economical and practical way of achieving their goal. This work symbolizes a point were humans have become so economical that they have been reduced to mere black and white outlines. The hand above symbolizes humanity and is holding a small strip of skin, which the people below long to reclaim. Though the hand above seems to be more reminiscent of humanity today, it is only a cover up, for below the skin, is just another black and white hand.


My newest work in the series dealing with spray paint and oil, the stencil for the background was the most time consuming, but I feel the complexity of the pattern and the simplicity of the female figure work well. I stained the wood the create the dark background. Actual size is H 48" x W 33", let me know what you think!
