Herbie - watercolor
watercolor, 2017 available, 9"x12" prints and gifts also available       I thought I'd try this portrait of Herbie Hancock from an old black-and-white photo. It worked pretty well, but I still might try it larger and maybe a little looser.

Angie #42 - watercolor
watercolor, 2017 nfs, 9"x12"       I haven't posted a portrait of my beauty queen in a while. This one was a pleasant surprise. I thought it was going to be trash almost immediately after starting it on Fabriano Studio paper, which I have complained about a...

Cogburn - gouache
gouache, 2017 available, 11"x15" prints and gifts also available       I've had this rooster reference photo sitting around for years, originally planning to do a very loose watercolor. I finally pulled it out and a realist gouache showed up.

39 Cadillac - watercolor
watercolor, 2017 nfs, 11"x15" prints and gifts also available       Loosening up on car paintings always feels like a double-edged blade. I'm inclined to render cars photographically as I did for several years. But, as I've mentioned here before, I no longe...
