Motion Paintings of Athletes


Creative Process:

All of my paintings start with an acrylic under-painting which is the base for oil pastels.  I smear the pastels to create the illusion of movement and speed.  When I'm painting areas of detail, I use various clay shapers to sculpt and mix colors on the canvas.  After the work is done, a coating is applied to allow for safer handling of the piece.
