McIntosh

This is a graphite drawing of a McIntosh Apple.

A Cows View

A Cows View.
I paint what I know and growing up on a farm we had tons of fresh fruit and vegetables along with lots of animals to feed. One of the most important things an artist can do is get to know your subject. Take a lot of reference photos. When you paint animals it is best to take a lot of pictures from different angles. Now that phones have cameras in them you always have a camera ready to take a picture. My phone is one of the old kind so I still have to drag along my camera. I keep files of pictures taken from magazine,news paper,and down loaded from on line. I use them for references only.
When I am work on a quick study I use 140 lb cold pressed paper but when I am working on a more finished work I use 300lb because I like the durability of it.

I always start with a drawing. When I am working on a study I usually work right on the watercolor paper but when I am working on a larger work a do the drawing first on paper, make corrections, then draw it on the watercolor paper.

I use French Ultramarine and Burnt Umber for the darkest areas and that is where I start.
My Cows eyes are always a blue color, that is because when I was a kid I would up at the cows and their eyes always were a black with this blue high light to them and I would think gee cows have blue eyes.

Seascape in Texas

Living in Michigan all my life I am always surprised at what wonderful things other areas of the United States has to offer.Michigan has is Great Lakes and white sand beaches. I was told that I would be disappointed with the beaches in Texas when I came here.

Galveston Island may not have great stretches of white sandy beaches but when I put my toe into the water it was bath warm . The beach had lines of colorful umbrellas and beach chairs and the children were running in and out of the waves. I could have rented a beach chair and watched the ocean but I wen out on one of the stone storm surge barriers and sat watching the tide come in and the sun set.
