another meadow

My friend Jackson introduced me to a fantastic artist named Matt Smith. After seeing Smith's DVD, I wanted to do a painting using the ideas he talked about.

I am getting addicted to these late night quick paintings...aaack! Anyways, this is a again inspired again from my commute home... this time, I wanted to capture the essence of my quick glance off Beverly Glen and the grand vista of the valley. I believe I captured my feelings of that moment. Enjoy!

made up paintings

I did two quick paintings this week... the first one is from memory. My commute home from work takes me sometimes to the 134 freeway which has these beautiful eucalypus trees near Glendale. I wanted to capture how they look during sunset and do it from memory.

This other one I did from imagination. I don't know where you are.. but it's HOT here in Los Angeles! I like to dream of places that..well... are not as freakin' hot... and since I gotta be here...this is the closest I can get to anywhere that does not get to 90 plus degrees every other day.

mouse face...

hey! I've been in this "old school" way of thinking for a while...huh...well, this one I wanted to sketch something that looked like it was done in oils...moreover, I wanted to see if I can do it with a mouse...not a wacom.. so I sketched this ambigious figure in about an hour just for the hell of it...enjoy!

lunch break sketch...

I have been trying this "old school" charcoal approach lately in photoshop... thought I'd do a quick sketch during my lunch break without reference. enjoy!
