Step 1 - 2: Thumbnail Drawing & Color Study

This is the thumbnail and color study sent to the client for approval. Once they've been approved, I begin work on the actual painting after doing some pencil studies of the face of both the man and the donkey (not shown). This is the painting with yellow ocher added to it, to give it an overall tone.

Art For Sale & Where To Buy It

I've got several pieces of art up on eBid right now. I've just added my 16 hand drawn, all signed RED SONJA trading cards. These are one of a kind, so you'll want to get them all.

I've also started posting work for sale on Esty. This is a flat fee site, no auctions. Please feel free to visit my eBid store HERE and my Esty store HERE

Remember, its FREE to join both sites :)

And if you don't see any art that you'd like right now, please use the DONATION Button to the left to make a donation of any amount to help me stay alive, as that the sale from these works of art is my only income.

And I've got some work for sale on my web site HERE

Starting tomorrow, you can see the step by step process on the painting I'm currently working on. I'll be posting my progress on this as I go along. I'll be posting as often as I can, which means maybe more than my once a week rule.
