Vase of Roses

This sketch was done using a Ng Woon Lam oil painting as a reference. Ng Woon Lam is one of the artists that I admire, his painterly style is a treat to watch as he paints.

Oil sketch

Did this one with leftover paint on the palette.

Oil on canvas, 5 x 7


It has been a couple of weeks since I painted with oils, figure it was time to do a small painting. This was done with titanium white, lemon yellow, yellow ochre, venetian red, ultramarine blue, and paynes gray.

Houghton's Pond

Just brought a Fujifilm S8100fd camera and wanted to try it out. I went to Houghton's Pond and took a couple of shots, didn't stay long since it is in the middle of winter and didn't want to wade through piles of snow to get more shots. One of the pictures came out a little blurry which I didn't keep but this one looks alright though can't see the water as it is frozen and covered with fresh snow. I can't wait until it starts to get warmer out, then I can really give this camera a really good workout.

Small sketch

A not so good sketch, that's what I get for not doing anything for the last few days.
