Despite my Dad being an oil painting teacher for over 30 years, I don't have many oil paintings of my own. I think it's because oils are such a messy medium.
It takes a lot of effort to set up before oil painting and especially to clean up afterward.
I like to keep my hands clean! ;)
"Ikea pig" Oil painting
I had a painting day with my Dad, Kevin Taylor, in his studio. I painted this Ikea pig (my son loved these pigs) and my Dad painted a wild Butcher bird that he used to feed in his backyard.
While we were painting, the butcher bird flew in and landed on my easel!
The butcher bird ended up being my Dad's final artwork before he passed away on 30 Jan 2018 after a bout with cancer.
See more of my Dad's paintings on his website; Kevin Taylor Art, including hundreds of works by his students.
"2 trees" Oil painting
Just a simple painting of some weird trees that are quite fractal-like.
