Griffin & Bear Step 1 WIP

I have finally got around to starting this painting of my grandson Griffin who is two years old with his Bear riding on a toy four wheeler. Griffin does everything with Bear so this will be a great momento when he is older. The painting is on 300lb Arches water color paper and is 22inches X30.
 This is my largest Portrait yet.

Christmas Card 2012

This is the Christmas Card I have made for this year. Every year I do a personal Card that I paint myself. I really wanted to do another one and choose between them but was not up to it.
 Wishing all my followers A Very Merry Christmas,or all the best whatever your beliefs. May the New Year be good to you all!!

Get on and Ride

Just finished this painting as I have been ill and not up to anything for the past couple of weeks.
  I really enjoyed doing this painting as a lot of it was not fully planned but I am quite pleased with the outcome. I ended up using white acrylic to paint the horse so it is really mixed media now.I also used some Indian ink.
 I think the white acrylic really gave it the look of not being a real horse. Hope you like it. Now I want to start a large painting of my grandson who is two and a half years old.
