Just had to share this cute pic of @spot_squishbean, who I had the pleasure of meeting during an April visit to Toronto. Such a little character! 💖

Waterworld 8x10" watercolour. I had a little breakthrough with this one. I found some questionable looking brushes that Phil's father had passed down to him years ago last week during spring cleaning, and decided to try them out. They are ...

It's a lot of fun to let loose and not worry about perfection. Although, I really need to get back to larger watercolours and oil!

I'm having trouble staying away from landscapes, but I am playing with colour/ realism (at least). Most importantly I'm having a lot of fun making these. 👏

My good friend @jaredkerim told me I should do #the100dayproject and so I'll give it a go! I haven't done anything abstract or with mixed media in years. I have a feeling doing mini abstracts will be a great way ...

Oil on canvas 20"x20". Part of my Waterworld series. This was my first time painting with a palette knife and it's SO MUCH FUN. Stay turned for more juicy paintings. 🌏🌊🌕

Chubby purple finch watercolour 5"x5". Feels necessary to break up the landscapes every so often! More chubby birbs with atmospheric backgrounds to come! 🐤🌦
Watercolour and acrylic 8"x10" on 100% cotton Fabriano Acquarello paper. Guise I had a little too much fun with my new Sakura Pen-touch white acrylic marker. 😅
8"x10" watercolour on Fabriano Aquarello watercolour paper (Artistico, 140lb, extra white). Picked up this fantastic paper (comes in a block) a few days ago. It's 100% cotton and absorbs beautifully without breaking. It's texture is lovely as well. 👏
RIP @zaphodstagram. Such a sweet, beautiful little buddy. 💛
"Waterworld Fig.1" watercolour and acrylic on 140lb cold press paper, 9"x12". Trying to finish some of my WIPs' today. This one's inspired by the late Igor Sakharov's stormy seascapes. 🌊

Watercolour study from a few weeks ago. I particularly enjoy this one, it feels like a window into another world.
I'm so jazzed I have today & the next couple of days to paint again! With travel, work, and social ...

Winter World 9"x12" #watercolour on 300g cold press. Implementing new techniques with every not-so-classic watercolour landscape I've been painting of late. I learn so much with every piece. 👏
