It was Neither More Nor Less Than a Pig

It Was Neither More nor Less than a Pig by K Henderson

It was Neither More Nor Less Than a Pig, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board

 The title comes from a line in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The white porcelain was more of a challenge than I thought it would be. And the chocolate pig is living in my freezer. I don’t have the heart to eat him after he put in such hard work as a model.

Welcome to my New Series of Paintings: Hats!

As you know by now I collect things. And, yes, Vintage Hats are among those things. Time to add them to my paintings subjects.

This painting shows a Derby (or Bowler), a walking Cane with a silver handle, a pair of kid gloves and a hat box.

Stay tuned for the next installment

Day 1

Operation, WIP, 30 x 40

I had a request to create a painting of the board game ‘Operation’.  I decided to post the images of the Work In Progress.

My first step, which I’m not showing, is the drawing on tracing paper. When I’m happy with the drawing I transfer the drawing to the canvas. Then I start blocking in the colors. I like to loosely block in the colors over the entire canvas so I can get a ‘feel’ for the painting and composition.

This is how the painting looks at the end of the first day.

 

Wonder Woman – Almost finished

Wonder Woman, work in progress

I thought I might be finished with this painting but after setting it aside for a few days it is blazingly obvious that the bracelet needs a LOT more work. So back on the easel it goes.

I’ve only had a few hours more to work on this painting but I thought I would show the progress so you can see how wild it’s becoming.

Wonder Woman Work in Progress, 24 x 18

I’m working on a few paintings at once. I have nothing new to share so I decided to show a Work in progress.

This is another of my Super Hero trompe l’oeils. I guess I should call this series ‘Super Heros in a Box’ sense I keep using the same cardboard box to define the elements. What do you think?

This photo was taking after 3 days of painting.

This is the finished painting. The title comes from a line in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
