Raccoon Painting in Progress

I am working on a larger oil painting of our two rescue raccoons right now.  This will probably be the final painting in my raccoon series for a while.  I’ve started working on some other animal and landscape themes.  I’ve painted “the girls” separately, but wanted to create a painting of the two of them.  I started with a warm red undertone and then blocked in the composition and main forms. I work on the composition as a whole but develop the background first before adding more detail to the main subject, in this case the raccoons.

I’ll b adding more pictures to this post as I finish the painting.

Bandit Yawn

I finished a painting last week in my series of raccoon paintings, “Bandit Yawn”.  We have two rescue raccoons who showed up on our farm five days after their mother was killed in the road late spring of this year.  They are staying with us until next spring when we plan on relocating them to the Short Hills.  They are fun, curious girls and have become the subject of some recent paintings. “Bandit Yawn” is oil on prepared paper and I’ll be mounting it on board before framing it next week.  I’ll be adding it to my gallery.  The original will be available then, and giclee prints are available now. I’ve added gift certificates for art workshops to my store, and will be adding gift certificates for artwork too.  Contact me if you need a gift certificate in any denomination that isn’t available, or if you would prefer to pay by cheque rather than online.
