The light changed during the time I was painting this one, from partly sunny to cloudy. I was standing on sand bars, but as I painted I kept adding more white water.

“Loving Vincent” Inspired

I loved the new animated film “Loving Vincent,” which was hand painted by 100 artists in the Van Gogh style. The film inspired me to see how good, a digital oil painting effect I could get on my IPad Pro. I used the KDAN animation program, to sketch the animation, and painted the individual frames in a paint program, Art Set Pro. Background is repeated every 4 frames. It was worth the extra effort to use the paint program.

Working on Trees

In my new Cincinnati environment there are more trees. Therefore this winter I’m studying trees. Here is the first study, it’s from a local park. 9×12” Canvas Board

What I Did Last Summer Part 3

Just before I moved, I painted a 6×6” canvas for the BAC Fundraiser.

I went to one last meet up with “The Basement Painters” at the BAC in the newly renovated building. They have a wonderful new workspace with great company.

Here’s where the 6×6 paintings hung. It’s a very successful event.

What I Did Last Summer Part 2

I went an Artist Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge in late June. We painted in Plein Air along the Big Sioux River. 8×10” Acrylic on Canvas Board.
