Dabbling with acrylics.

I thought I would dabble a bit in acrylics last night. It was quite frustrating having to work is quicker than I do with oils, but I got the hang of it again. I plan on adjusting colors in the sky by adding more layers, and then I can focus on the reef life!

I am making great strides in building this beautiful Bali reef scene. I plan on adding more blue, pink, and yellow corals as well as TONS of Pacific reef fish. Stay tuned for more updates!

Mahi Hunting

Mahi Hunting
This is a 36″x24″ oil on canvas work I have stored in my office. Here in Florida, as well as most parts of the globe, enjoy fishing for these strong sportfish. This pelagic animal grows very quickly and have voracious appetites. The reference photo for this painting was uncredited, but I would love to know who snapped the shot!

Perfect for surfers, vacationers, or anyone who simply loves the ocean, this print is available on canvas, watercolor paper, as well as metal prints and posters.

A new over-under reef painting.

20x20This past weekend I started the underpainting for a new over-under painting of a nurse shark swimming along a Caribbean reef. The underpainting is very similar to  a sketch, in that it provides a guide for your future brush strokes. It also helps with shading as you lay your paint on the canvas. I am highly motivated to work on this painting so keep checking back for more updates!

 

Hawksbill Reef Final

Hawksbill Reef Final

Hawksbill Reef is now complete! After many hours in front of the canvas (and many more cleaning all those brushes) my final vision for this painting is complete. The turtle rests on a 36″ x 36″ canvas and was created using oil medium. While the drying and curing process has just begun, limited edition prints will be available soon.
