Midnight Cup

Yet another coffee painting. This one is a coffee cup sitting on a table, with the background city lights.

This one was really different, because of the lights in the background. They're all different colors, and some you'd think wouldn't/shouldn't be there, but they are! Definitely a new experience.

A Hint of Lemon and Olives

A Hint of Lemon and Olives.

This one is one of my favorite paintings that I've done, and one of the most challenging. The painting is 11" 14", so it's not a huge painting, but it is larger for me. With the painting being only so big, the martini glasses were harder to do, because of the little differences in color.

Done August 2012

On the Boulevard

On The Boulevard

This one I also did for an art show that happens where I live in September.

For some weird reason, the coloring didn't work in the photo, and no matter what I did to it digitally, the colors wouldn't match the original painting. There is more yellow in the original painting, and a little red, though you'd never know.

A friend of mine suggested "On the Boulevard", and though it is a martini drink, I think that the name fits.

Dark, Light, Medium

I cannot believe that I haven't posted this painting before. I did it who knows when in 2011, but I have news. I sold it!!
Anyway, I may be doing this one again, only this time instead of it being a 9" x 12", it will be larger. Who knows when I'll get that done. But as far as this painting goes, it isn't wasn't as easy to paint as it looks.

These two paintings I actually did back in August of 2011. Why I haven't posted them yet is because I couldn't get the top painting (Celebrations) to look correct when I took a photo of it.
Here they are now, enjoy.

Batman: Watcher over Gotham

I did this back in July when I was planning on teaching a cartoon course. The course fell through, but I was left with this batman picture that is one of my favorites of the ones I've done.I do need to change a few things, such as the lowest low-light in the grey part of his suit.

Betta Fish - Blue Moonstone

A few weeks ago, I was in the mood to paint Betta (or sometimes known as Siamese Fighting) fish.

I ended up paintnig this gorgeous betta fish, as a trial, to see how it went painting fish. I think it turned out pretty well, even if the metallic body didn't shine the way I wanted it to.

This was the my first step into the world of doing comic book renditions. I realllllllly like how this one urned out! It took me days to get the webbing correct, but  the whole character took time to complete. I probably spent over 14 hours on Spider-Man. So. Worth it.

Iron Man

Iron Man.

This one was pretty simple to do, no funny lines, or weird curves, the whole thing was pretty symmetrical. Really easy to do!

Done in Photoshop CS5.

Donatello - TMNT

Here is Donny, the "third youngest". These digital drawings are getting easier and easier to do.

I actually did a flash picture of how I did this picture, but it wouldn't upload to Blogger, so I'll continue to fiddle with the information/programing of the pictures.

Springtime Beach - Part 2/2 Christmas Gift

This is part two of my Christmas paintings posts. This one I did because my mom loves warmth, sun and beaches. Well, both my parents enjoy warmth etc, but I had my mom in mind when I was painting this. The camera didn't pick up the color the same way as it is in real life :(
I, personally, enjoy how the water looks connecting with the sand. I've always had a hard time with scenery but this one didn't give me a hard time. Ok, so it gave me a little difficulty, but not much.

Grapes - Part 1/2 Christmas Gift

This is one of two paintings I gave my mom and dad for Christmas 2011. I went for a different approach with this painting, because my mom likes the more smooshy type paintings. I googled grape pictures and came across this one and saw that it was paintable. I started painting it, on Christmas Eve at about 10 pm and didn't finish it until about midnight. But as I started painting it, I found out that I couldn't add any red painting to the grapes because of the type of blue I was using. Instead of creating a purple, I ended up creating a browny mess that I had to scrape/wipe off, so the grapes ended up being BRIGHT blue! It's ok, because it looks different in real life with it being less of a brilliant blue and more of a muted blue. I think my mom liked this one more than the next painting I'll be posting.

Dolphin Statue

This one of three dolphin statue paintings that I'm planning on doing. I've started on Painting #2, but quickly set it aside. It's been quite a bit of time since I actually did this, so I'd say I'm not going to be doing the other two for a while, but I thought I'd give you guys this one .

Because this is an all blue painting, I had to gather most of my blues to create all the different tones in the statue. Since it's a 9" x 12", it is slightly bigger than what I'm used to, so creating a smooth top layer was somewhat of a challenge. But I think it worked out in the end.
