The purpose of this section is to see the way I paint my pictures. I take a series of photographs at different stages in the artistic process to give a kind of timeline. I find it's good to look back and see how I came to my finished piece. I've always received positive comments on how interesting it is to see the process I go through because it's usually done behind closed doors, so those who don't paint get to experience not only the finished product, but the process as well.
One of the first pictures I tried that I kept track of my progress. It's interesting to see the series of pictures on how he comes to life.
A beautiful tiger wading through water. The process for this one was very interesting.
The small, but cute fish in a teacup. My first-ever acrylic painting.
This one always seems to make people smile.
A painting of my friend - first greyscale attempt.
A painting of a picture I took while in Lima, Peru.
All done with watering down the acrylic paint to achieve a watercolour effect. THe interesting part is the black fish still let through the orange background.
The first multi-media project I tried, complete with fake grass. Model and pose if from a picture that one of my friends took.
A few progressions of several abstracts I have done.
Cute (very) orange tiger with plastic grass he's sitting in. The flat background lets you focus on the expression in the tigers face.
A self-portrait in a respect - it's painted from a picture taken at the End of the World in Edmonton, with me sitting on the end of the crumbled walkway.
A small bunch of peppers I had laying around the house. The sunlight was just right, so I drew them. They're such pretty, vibrant colours.
This is such an interesting art piece, so I knew I had to put up a 'how I did it' guide.
A cute little burrowing owl I met at the Valley Zoo in Edmonton. He gave me this look, and I knew I had to draw him.
