Starting last summer, Chuck decided to focus his studio work on cows in the landscape, while continuing to paint "anything and everything" in his plein air work. His love of cows comes from his earliest days spent on a cattle ranch in northeast Texas. Several new cow paintings are posted in the Artwork/New Paintings tab. More will be revealed in his and Barbara's "Texascapes" Show, featured in May at R. S. Hanna Gallery. "Grass Guzzlers," below, was painted with the "Zorn palette" (after master painter Anders Zorn), which is Yellow Ochre, Vermillion, Ivory Black, and White. Makes for great color harmony!
The March-April issue of Southwest Art magazine has a great write-up on Chuck, which you can see by clicking here. Miz Barbara will have her turn soon in Western Art Collector.
My first painting video! All the preparation for a Quick Draw that didn’t happen turned into a perfect opportunity to make a fast-paced video. Check it out below. The painting took about 45 minutes in real time, but this was sped up in the movie for entertainment value. For those artists and friends who would like to know more about the process, please click here for a pdf that explains it all.
