North Country Public Radio

Check out NCPR's website, my oil painting of local Ives Park is the artwork of the day.

This was a wet-on-wet painting I made as a gift, and probably my first attempt at wet-on-wet painting. I'm usually much more methodical, and I plan large flat layers first, with gradual building up, which usually requires some drying time. But it was a great excersize, and a fun way to paint landscapes!

Caricatures According to John Kascht

This is definitely the best video on creating a caricature I have ever found. John Kascht takes an in-depth look at Conan O'Brien's face, personality, and all the things that make him who he is. He clearly believes, as I'm sure many artists do, that in order to draw something, you must first understand how it works. Watch as he expertly breaks down Coco (I really need to watch his show more often).
