Black and white commission

This painting is the reason I recently started working in black and white. A local collector asked if I would create a painting for him in black and white. After we discussed the painting, I had in front of me a somewhat daunting list of elements to be included in the painting: urban but no buildings, almost melancholy, rain, mist or sand, very black at the top, and a little rust color thrown in (to pick up the brown in his bedroom furniture). To be titled “Carnival in Kyoto” because the collector already owns “Carnival No.2” (see second pic) and he has very fond memories of a trip to Kyoto, Japan. And just to make things more challenging for myself, I decided the painting also needed to be energetic and masculine. Needless to say, I spent a lot more time trying to figure out what I how to include all of the above than actually creating the painting. But in the end, it all worked out and the collector is thrilled! Which makes me a very happy artist. 🙂

Painting clouds #1

This was the first cloud painting I’d attempted in several years, so I chose a small 10×10 canvas in case it went awry. Not too bad for my first shot at clouds again. 🙂

Painting clouds #2

After taking a break for a few years from trying to learn to paint clouds, I’ve decided to get back to it. And this time, I’m filming the process. Enjoy. (more vids of me painting coming soon)
