"More small paintings, 6x6 format, Four step demo"

Step # 1

Step # 2

Step # 3

Final Step # 4
"Yet untitled", 6x6 oil on linen panel
This is a little 6x6 inch painting that I painted yesterday.  I have been doing all of these small paintings for different Holiday shows.  They are fun to do and quick.  The speed that this was completed is why there are only four steps.  I did this one and another one (the untitled horse painting below) yesterday.  I do like the square format very much.  I had a series of books back in my illustration days that was a square has nice compositional possibilities.

"Yet Untitled Horse", 6x6 oil on linen panel

This little painting is also far, but I'm thinking it will have to be something to do with that flying, swooshing tail.  I will post a couple more in this format later.  Thanks for listening to my ramblings.

  1. I like your work, especially portraits. Thanks for sharing the 4 step demo.
    I have an Illustrators annual (#23) with your portrait of Mark Twain. Was that done in oils? What was the process of the rivulets of color? Best regards.
