Wood Art

Click on photos for larger views.
Photos of more carved wood art paintings I am working on.
I carve highlights into the wood to give the painting a
different look and feel to the art.
These two paintings still have a ways to go before they
are finished. I paint, carve, paint, carve, adding more paint
and carving out bits of lines and other details as I work
on the painting.

Carved Wood

A work in progress.
"Onion Girl Rides on her Red Pigeon".
Acrylic paints on wood.
I carved highlights into the wood to give the painting
a bit more character and a little depth.
In the red tail photo above, you can see the black lines are also carved
into the wood. (Click on the photo for a larger photo.)
The painting is not quite finished; I have some more painting to do
and add some coats of varnish.

Early in the process of painting of five new works on wood.
I carve into the wood details of the art, then add more
layers of acrylic paint.

Sneak Preview 4

This one is on the easel drying (and upside-down).
I have just sketched in the different parts and putting on first wash.
The size is 120 x 120 cm / 47.2 x 47.2 inches.

Sneak Preview 3

An old piece of wood that I am going to paint a skeleton head guy on it.
Instead of sketching in the character with pencil, I used a wood carving tool.
Notes gouges and scratches in the wood.
Next I will paint it with acrylic paints and add a layer or two of varnish.
Then maybe repeat that process.

Sneak Preview 2

Almost done with this painting - 39.6 x 47.2 inches.
No title yet. It is created with acrylic paints on canvas.
