Butchart Gardens

A "colorful" interpretation of Butchart Gardens.  I've included the ref photo I took a couple of years ago when I was out that way.   As you can see, I took quite a few liberties with the colors and some of the business.

Dog On The Beach

My last dog commission led to this one.  The customer approved some of the changes I proposed (see reference photo), but insisted that I keep the dog's favorite ball.

Leonard Hofstadter

I tried to "push" this caricature of Leonard Hofstadter aka Johnny Galecki a little farther than some of my other ones - - it proved to be a fun experiment.

A Friend's Dog

Hopefully a friendly dog.

And yes, the ears really do look like that.

Jodie Whittaker

A slightly "caricaturized" Doctor.  I tried to leave this somewhat painterly and not render out every detail to the point of photorealism such as I did with David Tennant and Adele.

Red Panda

This was supposed to be a simple line and wash - - something looser than the giraffe.  It soon turned in to a combo of pen, watercolors, watercolor pencils and a touch or two of gouache, but I still think I was able to restrain myself/loosen up somewhat from most of my pieces.

Old World Charm

Still working with those watercolors.  Sometimes their vision and mine match and sometimes they don't.

Egg and Nail

When I was a little kid I saw a magician pass a knitting needle clear through a ballon without popping it.  I thought I would try something similar with a nail and a raw chicken egg.

I'm still sporting the sling, but enough with the snow already - - let's head somewhere warm.
