Balboa Park 04.12.08

I as able to go out this past Saturday to Balboa Parkto get in some Plein Air sketching. Really cool place with tons of choice painting spots. I didn’t get in as many of these quick gouache sketches as I had hoped because I wanted to do a larger sized oil piece…which turned out disastrous by the way and no it will not get posted. heh
Next time I’ll be sure to get in some figure work since there are also tons of people lounging around that make for excellent targets for me to butcher on canvas. *cue diabolical laugh*



Charlton Heston Tribute

Charlton Heston passed away today. I did this piece to commemorate his role as Taylor in the only Planet of The Apes movie that counts. While I really dug the production design in the remake with Marky Mark, the 1968 version had a charm that got lost in the newer version of the film…besides that, the original starred Chucky Heston, c’mon.
Somewhere, anti-gun lobbyists are scrambling to grab Chucky’s gun.
Rest in peace, Mr. Heston.
