Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

This is step one, design composition and value/colour plan. 
Off to the studio I go!
Step two draw on board, and paint notan (value plan)
Next, the first of the texture layers
Then, first layers of glaze,
Almost done, 
Hmmmm, needed about this:
