A couple Watercolors
I've got some new work that I would love to share with everyone, however I can't do that until they are published, so until then I figured I would post a couple watercolors that I did a year ago. I love watercolor so much, would love to do more of it, and plan to do some fine are pieces that I can hopefully get in some galleries here in Chicago.
The first is a self portrait that I did, me sitting next to my pal Lupe . . . and yes, he is for real, he's a huge guy, but a true softy at heart, a great guy! As you may know, I am a huge Norman Rockwell fan, so this piece is sort of a tribute to Norman's work.
The second piece is . . . A Rockwell study! I tried to see how close I could get to the original, a huge challenge with watercolors. I'm proud of what I was able to do here with watercolors, it was fun to do, I felt a connection of sorts to Rockwell when painting it. When painting from a master's work, you learn quite a bit about their work, technique, and use of color and brush strokes.
On the drawing board today . . . I'm finishing my "Basil Gogos" approach to a Zombie Elvis for "The Imaginarium", I'll post it soon. Also working on a few others, so check back soon!
