Bye 2015!

meglyman_furiosaFuriosa –  fan art homage to my favorite movie of all time

2015 was a good year. I was able to focus my art by doing more still life practice and background work, and I really got into the vulture culture/skull collecting community. I appreciate all of you – artists supporting artists, collectors, and the helpful and friendly vultures I’ve met. I hope we all have an awesome 2016!

  1. These are all fun. I love all the cephalopods!
    How did you like your lead? In general, I love lead especially for portraits but my main white is titanium.

  2. I do love the lead white. I’m kinda a sucker for different textures in paint – I know a lot of folks dislike oil paint that isn’t creamy. But I love my runny ultramarine, my gritty earth ochres, and my ropy lead white. This one was Rublev. I got a tube of Vasari lead white recently and look forward to trying that out too.
