Painting ‘Moon’ Companion to ‘Sun’ Pt. 2

I’m done! This painting took an estimated 20 hours from start to finish. As a reminder this is a companion painting to Sun. Oil on linen 24 inches by 24 inches.  The two will hang together in my yoga studio until time they find a new home. Here they are together as they are intended to be:

Painting Foxes

My exploration of watercolor painting continues with foxes. In addition to exploring paint I’m also really enjoying making art about animals. The fox really draws me in personally. They are small but fierce. Foxes are small,wild hunters that can survive in some pretty harsh conditions. They also seem like they might be the cuddliest of creatures. Enjoy the results of my explorations:

Ink Drawings on Brown Paper

Sea_TurtleFor about two years now I have been enjoying the use of my Steadler pens on a small square Bee paper drawing pad. They are small enough to take with me everywhere! My studio literally becomes where ever I am. I have used this flexibility of space as a means to bring more flexibility into my drawings. Where once my drawing skills were basically a means to an end to work out ideas for paintings they have now evolved coming into their own.

Here are some images of the drawings and some of me in various places creating the drawings. What a ride and its not over yet!

All of these drawings and more to come are in my etsy store Krislyninobscura. I have originals and prints. Check it out!

Enjoy! And keep a look out for more!
