Its been a while since I have had the time to sit down and write an article about wildlife art and I apologize to my loyal readers for that. We have been so busy trying to earn money so that we can continue to create wildlife art that this blog has suffered. I will try to remedy that starting today.
For the past 18 months, we have been on the road gathering photographs for our reference library as well as doing odd jobs to earn money. We’ve been all over South Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee and have amassed a large quantity of photographs that we hope will be very useful in the coming months for new artwork. Unfortunately, all this travel has come at a cost to this blog.
My immediate plans are to start a new painting within the next few days, and as I begin the process, I’ll be taking lots of photographs of the process, and will be sharing those photographs with you.
I will be trying some new techniques for my artwork in 2012. I plan to do some very detailed close-up work of some of my favorite ducks in a smaller format. My standard format for paintings is typically a 20″ x 16″ canvas with a pair of mallard ducks in a flying position. This year, I want to try some close-up work with the ducks being the major portion of the image, rather that merely a part of the scene.
Thank you all for sticking with us through the last 18 months and thanks for stopping by North Forty Wildlife Art, and keep coming back to see our progress.
