riot cops #6 26.5x21.5

This is the biggest one so far. I ran out of actual black and white acrylic paint in my classroom so this is done partially with latex house paint.

Creepy Pan's Labyrinth character

A student of mine asked me to do a painting demo of this guy. Pan's Labyrinth has some really great creature design. 8x10 oil on linen.

Riot Cops #5 24x16.5

I am keeping these as simple as I can. Painting in gray scale with a splash of bright color. They are all based on photographs but I am editing them heavily. I am really trying to focus in on the action and cut out distracting details. My students are in love with details. I am trying to show them another way.

riot cops #1 15x13

I'm going to do a whole series of painting based on images from the Greek financial riots. I did this one as a painting demo in my classroom and it was very popular with the kids!
