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…

Colorful Tree Study

So why not fill large areas with the watercolor and do the details with colored┬ápencil in the same work? Then you can…

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…
