Cotton Ball

"Cotton Ball"  (pastel, 7x5 inches)  click here to bid

This is my second painting from the reference pic of this bunny. My first one was experimental, shortly after the workshop with Casey Klahn, and I had liked it so much 'unfinished' that I decided not to take it any further, and instead I painted a new one from the same shot. I still see influences from the Klahn workshop in this one, and indeed, in much of my recent work. Thanks Casey!

Here's the first one, still unfinished... or maybe not?





Here are the couple of progress shots I took of Cotton Ball:

Big Chicken

"Big Chicken"  (pastel, 12x12 inches)  click here to bid

Here's a big chicken which has given me a short break from the cuddly cute, sugary sweet bunnies. She's so big I couldn't fit her on a 6x6. She's on a mission and I'm not gonna get in her way.

On another note, I had a recent inquiry from a blog follower about the reason why I paint so often in a small size. What a delightfully stimulating question! Read my long list of answers here on my Art Journal Blog!

Here are some progress shots of Big Chicken:

The gold and terra cotta primers

the reference pic and finished underpainting including the black primer

Bea

Bea is another view of Babette. I love Babette's pose, but Bea, though more of a calm, static pose, was a painting that flowed without any troubling issues throughout the entire process. I love it when that happens.

Here are some progress shots:

Diva

Doesn't she look exotic, like a 1950's movie star? Something about that glorious white fur and the sultry look in her eye...

Here are some progress shots of Diva:
