New Weight Drawing at Wooden Robot Brewery


This drawing from my Weight Series of figure drawings is on display at the Wooden Robot Brewery. The Brewery is located on Bland Street just off South Tryon. The painting hangs right across from the bar.  They have awesome beer in addition to the art! This drawing is 6 feet tall on paper. I used graphite and white charcoal as the mediums. I drew from a live model.

Living Room Painting


The Living Room is a Frame Shop in Charlotte. It used to be in this building on Camden Road. This painting is a tribute to the location in South End Charlotte. Drawing above.


Painting in the large areas. Most of the time each area will take several layers to finish. Except the sky, you have to get that right the first time.


More detail and the major shadow.


Detail for the motorcycle.
Final painting!

Foggy Landscape Series Work in Progress


 Here is some work in progress on my foggy landscape series.  



Great gnarly tree.  I think it looks like grandpa Tree at Discovery Place, a children's museum in Charlotte.


 You an barely see the blue ridge mountains in the distance.  The following images are close up details of several paintings.
