Hadeda Habits, 76x101cm, Oil on Canvas

Hadeda Habits, 76x101cm, Oil on Canvas

Dec 26, 2016 @ 06:00 I’ve meant to paint a Hadeda Ibis since moving to South Africa. Everyone considers them a nuisance, with their habit of squawking up a storm when they are flushed (hence the common joke that they are afraid of flying). But, if you actually take the time out to look at…

Working Weaver, 77x56cm, Watercolor on Paper

Aug x, 2018 Jan 16, 2017 @ 06:00 Been working on this quite a lot lately. Most of my time was being spent mixing up more green paint. This was remedied by a trip to the plastic store to get a bunch of little tubs I can tube paint into and mix up more than…

Crested Barbet, 37×55, Mixed Media on Paper

Aug x, 2018 Jan 9, 2017 @ 06:00 Painting in oil will always be my passion, but every now and then an artist has to ‘switch it up’ to keep from getting bored. I’ve never been very good at watercolor but I’ve always meant to sit down and practice some day. Watercolor is much more…

Buffalo Dust, 61x91cm, Oil on Canvas

Buffalo Dust, 61x91cm, Oil on Canvas

January 10th, 2014 I have done quite a few painting sessions to get the painting to this point. I changed the shadow on the far hill from green to brown because the green was not working with the purple shades in the painting. I textured the trees and detailed the buffalo in the background. Added…

Wildebeest Watch, 102x76cm, Oil on Canvas

Dec 12, 2016 @ 6:00 I played around with the ground plane a little bit. I’m still not quite happy with the background, but not sure what needs done. I’ll probably put this on the back-burner for a while and come at it with fresh eyes later. October 6th, 2016 I have recently dusted off…

Warthog Shadows, 56x76cm, Oil on Canvas

Warthog Shadows, 56x76cm, Oil on Canvas

January 10th, 2014 This update shows more work on the details in the warthogs. I will need to go over the background again to repair scratches that occurred during shipping from the states (insert angry fist-in-the-air emoticon here). It still needs a lot of details added, hairs on the hogs, blades in the grass, pebbles…

Waterbuck in Water

Waterbuck in Water

Still working in mixed media. I was able to narrow down my supplies a bit with this work since it is on sanded paper and the tooth of which can hold more colored pencil. I started with a wash of Derwent Artstics, when that was dry I went in with Derwent Artists Coloured Pencils, and…

My Cat Ilanga Painting
One Good Horn

One Good Horn

Here is the piece I used to illustrate my “zone in” issues in a┬áprevious post with its underpainting in place. See? Doesn’t that first Kudu look better now? I don’t know why but I love the charcoal lines filled in with oil paint look. Maybe I should just start stopping at this stage and claiming…
