Birthday Whatsis

I painted this last week for my brother's birthday. No, I don't know what I was thinking, except that he lives in the Midwest and there is some corn around there somewhere. Alan, if you're reading, happy (belated) birthday!

It's another cutout painting - made on a card that's about 4" x 6" and then cut out. Here you can see my hand holding it against the scanner glass:

watercolor and gouache paintings

Lots of time in the lab this weekend, trying to get the paint to do what I want it to do.

I like the top and the right paintings; they have some nice light. The one on the left looks OK but the technique was way too labor-intensive; it sucked all the freshness out of it. Maybe you heard the noise Sunday night.

A quick watercolor and ink study of Chuck and Micki from Smithson:

And part of an illustration gig from last week:

ink drawing

It's a little hard to tell without the color, but it's supposed to be a PC shaped like a motorcycle. The guy's probably playing Half-Life 2.
