Evening at the Passage

Well I'm back again and I've brought with me those special visitors I was hinting about. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I really do enjoy seeing/drawing Orca Pods and I especially liked this one given the spectacular setting which they live in. The view is looking NW into the beautiful Discovery Passage on the east coast of Vancouver Island. This shot is from one of my favourite spots on Quadra Island. Thank you for stopping by and catching up.....

and the clouds return once again

Well it seems that once again time has passed quickly and its that time of year. Time when the leaves fall from the trees and the clouds roll in from the west to water the land. A good thing about the clouds this time is that they seem to have brought with them some visitors. I'd like to share with you the latest piece on the drawing board. Stay tuned and see just who these visitors might be and the view that they are also enjoying.......

"On the Prowl"

Hello again everyone......well after a small break and serveral reference gathering, kayaking trips, I have finished and signed my latest wildlife piece. I hope you like how it has turned out.

Lots of hair/fur did make for a few long sessions at the drawing board. I think it might be time for something a little more on the smooth side next. Stay tuned.....and stop back often.

I've always found wolves to be very fascinating animals. I like the look and personality in the eyes and the textures and feel of the coat. The fact that they can adapt to many different circumstances and changing worldly times has always interested me. They seem to come in all shapes, sizes and looks. I couldn't resist trying to capture the look and feel of this scruffy fella. He is giving off a cautious look. This look I believe is something you might see from a wolf at the lower end of his pack hierarchy.

I hope you enjoy watching this piece develop along side me. Pull up a chair and enjoy.

Thanks again for stopping by.....

Exploring Break

I took the opportunity this past weekend to do some exploring/reference gathering on a new island that I have never been to before. The islands name is Salt Spring and it is one of the Southern Gulf Islands located in between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. It also happens to be the home of one of my artistic idols, Mr. Robert Bateman. I will try and post a few pics of this picturesque place in weeks to come.

As for the drawing thats on the board now......I have taken some time to complete the subject of this piece.
Stay tuned for the completion of this one shortly.........

Thought I would show a little progress on this one. The bubbles are taking me longer than I thought. Who knew that you could spend this long doing tiny bubbles and sparkles. I think I will be taking a break from building bubbles and move onto the main subject for a bit.

Taking Another Look

Hello again and Happy New Year to everyone.

I've decided to take another look at a Work in Progress that I haven't been completely happy with. After playing around with the composition a little and adding a bit of flow to this somewhat static piece, I think you'll like what I've come up with. I hope to have this one completed soon.

Thank you for stopping by......
