After a twenty year dry spell I’ve started painting in oil again. For a brief time in college I gave it a go but life on the road made it an impractical medium for me. Instead I spent the last twenty years with my nose to a computer. Over the last few months I’ve fallen in love with the medium again. It’s both a struggle and a joy remembering how to use it. I never had any formal training in oil so I’m I’m starting from scratch. I’ve been watching YouTube videos on everything from brush care to oiling out canvas. I’m having a great time. I love all the added complexities oil painting brings.
This probably explains why I haven’t posted much in the last year: Star Wars Resistance
The old miner escapes into his mine, confident Dick and Don will be unable to track him in the dark labyrinth.
I’ve sat on this painting for a few months, it wasn’t concept art for the show, just a fan painting I made while on my lunch break. The wolves are one of my favorite elements of season four. The more I worked with them the more they bored their way into my imagination. I understand Dave’s obsession with them now.
Really looking forward to the second half of the season airing. I’m so happy with how it came out.
The old miner makes his escape drawing Dick and Don towards his mine.
Couldn’t sleep so I watched Super Troopers and painted a desert.
Thinking about my comic project with Dick and Don and how it winds its way around San Francisco.
The boys stumble out of the poison oak. The old miner has a head start. Will they catch him?
There is a commotion in the bushes and the old miner catches wind of Dick and Don.
Dick and Don were itching for a fight with the old miner, now they get to have an itchy fight. Bad luck, Looks like the boys stumbled into a patch of Pacific Poison Oak (Toxicodendron diversilobum).
