Robin Williams

Portrait of Robin Williams. Mostly about practicing facial anatomy. Not 100% happy with the shape of the face. I think I am still off a little. On the other hand, I do not want to do something that is photorealistic. I want it to remain expressionistic. So, in that regard, maybe I am making things…

Salvador

The first time I came across a Salvador Dali painting (in a book), I was a fan. It was the moment I realized art could be something beyond either still life or classical paintings. Sure, I was old enough to be aware of all kinds of art. But, it took a Dali to really open…

Impressionism | Audrey

Another impressionism painting. I am most happy with the eyes. Less happy with some of the contouring. Some spots don’t feel natural to me. I think I know where I went wrong – the neck. Mostly. That’s the second iteration of the neck and, while it is far better than my first attempt, it still…

Impressionistic Digital Painting | The Man With the Eyes

I am still working on old photos – using them as the basis for impressionistic digital paintings. Here is the scan of the original photo. This is not retouched, but it is smaller for the sake of quick loading on this page. Using that as my reference, I started working on ways to add some unusual…

digital oil abstract | Inferno

A quick digital oil abstract for today. I’m loving this ArtRage app – which has the most realistically simulated wet media effects I have seen. Prints available at Pixels.

Circular – Abstract Digital Oil Painting

I wanted to get back, at least a little, to hand painted abstracts. This project was created in ArtRage, so I could simulate real world media – in this case, oil paint. I am not exactly sure how long this took… somewhere between 40 to 60 hours, between work and other projects. I got caught…

360° Image Tests

I’m currently exploring how I might be able to create some slightly immersive art experiences. In this experiment, I am using the Google and Facebook VR 360° capabilities. From the start, I can say that the Facebook 360° engine seems to work a little better. The Google VR engine shows a pinch-seam at the top…

Red Inside

I’ve been so busy with client work that I have not had much time to work on any art projects just for me. So, I did this over the weekend. Print it
