Indian Hunter, 2017

Well this painting combines two things that I love: painting in the snow and the first statue installed in Central Park after the park was created. Keyword there is after as Bethesda Fountain was there already part of the original design of the park. The sculpture is by John Quincy Adams Ward who considered it […]

Munsell Color Wheel

Between the traditional color wheel and the more modern one which uses RGB + CMY, I believe is where the Munsell Color Wheel falls and the color wheel that I prefer to refer to. I took a Munsell Color Wheel that I found on the internet and used Photoshop to tweak it slightly so that […]

A few years ago I had the opportunity to see a fascinating and wonderful and yet somewhat bizarre painting by Jamie Wyeth at the Adelson Gallery in New York.

I copied this drawing by Raphael from Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters by Robert Beverly Hale on plane to Little Rock, AR to visit my mom for Christmas. Combat situations were good scenarios to get the various possible combinations of muscle flexion, extension – contraction and relaxation which is why Renaissance artists favored doing […]
