The Longneck Drinker

Another new addition to the blog- an oil painting I've been working on recently from imagination.
It can probably use a little more work but its mostly there.


Here's one of Libby. It looked ok cropped when I was working on it, now it just looks like i've missed the top of her head.

For some reason, although I can picture Libby's face in my memory, I was completely unable to get it to look right.

Sorry Libby!

Drawing from Memory

These three digital images are all painted purely from memory. Working only from memory completely changes my approach to creating images in a way that, at the moment I find exciting.

By painting from memory I am forced to move away from an analytical approach and into an area of expression where the outcome is unknown.

On top of that, the painting becomes worked out as I work through it, not through planning.

Hopefully you will see more works along these lines very soon!
