Painting BG Details from Life

Even if I'm painting an imaginary scene with dinosaurs set in another world, I like to take the painting outside when I can. 


That way I can paint the scenic or background details with more energy and conviction, such as this bank of tulips in a friend's garden.


"Small Wonder" from Dinotopia: The World Beneath, which you can get signed from my website or from Amazon.

Awesome painting with a beautiful theme. I like the child with basket.

I too remember when I had hair. Those were the days! Nice work, wherever you do it.
