Red cape robot





The underpainting in progress. And yup, his cape is going to be red. Actually, I find it interesting that the robot reads as a he, instead of a she or an it.

Now to figure out what colours he/she/it is going to be...

Paintings in galleries


I'd like to mention that I have new paintings in Toronto at the Elaine Fleck Gallery, Including "Big City Dreams", so if you're out and about on Queen St west, you can go see them live and in person.

As well, I have delivered 3 large paintings to Wallspace gallery in Ottawa, so you can see them there if you get the chance.

Cheers,
Marcel

Experiments in blobs - or, yes I'm stupid, here's why:

So I decide to keep it simple with this painting, and what do I do? Try out a tricky painting technique called double loading. That makes this complicated, and me stupid. I'm sure it would look fine without this technique.


The technique involves putting two colours on the brush at the same time, and laying them on without having them blend together. Canadian national icon Tom Thomson was a master of this. Here you can see I've been trying to get red to streak through the blue of the sky. I think it's working.

Some nice words

Jean Pierre Plouffe wrote some nice things on his Puckbites blog about mine and Jennifer Walton's hockey paintings. Like JP, I'm a late bloomer with hockey too, so I thought that was pretty cool.
