Saturday Morning Sketch #4

Flowers are really fun to paint. If you've got a good underlying structure, and you make good colors choices, you can be incredibly loose and they'll still read as flowers.

Beautiful as always, Sir! Very nice color compliments and design.

Hatem said...

beautiful colors, I never thought it would be that fun to paint flowers, always had in mind a living thing is the most fun an artist could have when it comes to drawing or painting, thanks for the motivation, now I'll try to have fun with mostly anything :)

your work is just phenomenal. Your use of color, shape, and composition moves me in ways I'm not sure I can completely describe.
Do you have any tutorials laying about? video or written?

Patrick Jensen said...

Richard Gaines said...

Almost photo-real! How long do the more detailed pieces take and what process do you go about painting these?

Javiera said...

Your work is so amazing, I've found your blog for coincidence, I've been seeing all the paintings, and especially the LOTR's ones are so beautiful!

Hey, what's the deal with this Chinese spam comment? I also got this type of comment, but I can't seem to delete it? I tried to follow the instructions at blogger, but to no avail. What's up? Any tips?

winchester said...

PAUL!
Thank you for inspiring me everyday. When I wake up a few hours early to paint before I go to my job as a production designer, its art like yours that adds fuel to my fire.

I have just started doing plein air watercolors. Theres a bunch on my blog.

Thanks again. I wish you much happiness and inspiration.

Marcelo Vignali said...

Paul, I just tried to delete that Chinese porn spam and I was successful. I guess Blogger took care of the glitch. Give it a shot.
