This little painting is another study in acrylics using a limited palette. Some subjects suit this type of approach. The colours used ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and titanium white. I kept it pretty loose, almost watercolour like, adding a few dark accents with thicker paint near the completion of the work. Acrylic on board 6x6 ins.

Think about how often you need to render dirt: forest floor, beach, ocean floor, gardens, race track, rocky shoreline... Here's a fast, easy way to paint - yes - dirt!

Story
Tagline
"To follow knowledge like a sinking star, Beyond the utmost bound of human thought."
Introduction
I'm a sixty-something married guy with six kids, four surviving, in a small central Minnesota town.

One of the kids graduated from college in December, 2008, and is helping her husband run a factory; another is a cartoonist; #3 daughter is a writer; my son is developing a digital game with #3 and #1 daughters, and has a day job.

I mostly write and make the occasional bit of digital art.

I'm only interested in three things:
  • That which exists within the universe
  • That which exists beyond
  • That which might exist
Bragging rights
Logged six decades on Firebase Earth, so far; Still curous, learning; Married once; Six kids, four surviving.
