Some monster doodles . . .






I just got back from a little trip away with my family, had a great time relaxing. With a three year old and a four month old, I didn't have much time for drawing and sketching, but I did squeeze in a bit. These sketches of classic horror monsters were done fairly quick using a ball point pen and some acrylic paint on toned paper.

Below the monster sketches is a 11X14 oil painting that I did for Reform Judaism about two months ago. The story is about a Muslim women who hated Jews, and then had a complete turn around, she was no longer welcome back in her own country. It was crazy, because I only had four days to paint 30 people . . . it would have been much easier to do this digitally, however I felt that a traditional as well as a not so exaggerated look would fit better with the story. This was painted with a limited palette, Ivory Black, Cadmium Red, Yellow Ochre and White.

Beautiful stuff again. Solid drawing all round. Glad to hear you had a good trip as well. I gotta try that palette to see what it can do. I've lately been having some luck with Raw Umber, Cad Red, Cad Yellow, Ultramarine, and White, but it'd be cool to go even more limited.
