Birdseye view of Buck the Cat eyeing the bird.
This fish is found in the New York Adirondacks as well as a lot of other waters throughout the US. The one I painted is represented full size although it’s a small example. Ted caught it, I took its picture and then he returned to the cold water to swim again, hopefully a wiser fishContinue reading “Chain Pickerel”

I painted a masonite board with QOR watercolor ground which allows me to paint on a surface that, untreated, will not absorb the watercolor pigments. After an under painting of watercolor, I filled in shading and detail with casein, a more durable water media. Usually I use 140 or 300# watercolor paper. Comparing the hardboard groundContinue reading “Water Plants”

I love casein, it’s a wonderful water medium. It’s far more permanent than watercolor and gouache and it avoids the frequent plastic and/or garish look of acrylic. It’s made from milk and has existed as a painting medium for centuries. It has a ‘graphic’ look unique unto itself, flatter than oils, yet as colorful.

Daily Cat 211 – Buck is vacationing in Wisconsin for the summer. He likes it there, sort of. There’s a big, husky white and tabby queen that thinks Buck’s encroaching on her domain and has nicked him in the ear to make certain there’s no misunderstanding about what’s hers and not his. Other than that,Continue reading “Daily Cat 211”
Cad Orange, Ultra Blue
Color theory makes my head hurt. Having said that, I used a limited pallet for this painting, using only cadmium orange and ultramarine blue, black and white and small touches or viridian and cadmium yellow. The canvas was under-painted in a light lavender. As I continue to work in casein, I’m using two complimentary colorsContinue reading “Cad Orange, Ultra Blue”

Buck the Cat hones his fly catching skills.
This abstract forest looks a lot like Colorado to me, but you be the judge.
A Rock Bass is related to the Sunfish, you’ll notice that little black ear behind its gills that’s characteristic of that species. Ted pulled him out of the water at Lake Adirondack in upstate NY where he was also catching large and small mouth bass the same evening. They all went back into the Lake,Continue reading “Rock Bass”
