Boy and Donkey added to the Cattle Painting

Well I am  almost finished this oil painting , last weekend provided  me with some time to give it my attention.I am just left with the foreground details ,and a few areas where I want to touch up on.But so far I am very happy with it ,especially considering the fact that the reference photo of the boy and the one of  cattle were totally unrelated ,yet they have been brought together in a satisfactory composition.

                                       Just a few photos showing some detail from the painting.

What is a Roger Brown ?

It is not often that there is a newspaper article featuring my art ,especially with such a title ,so I thought I would include it here in my Blog.If you want to read the article just click the link Weekend Post.It contains a full page story with a picture of my painting (An uncertain encounter).  I have also submitted this painting to the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2012 which is organized by the David Shepherd Foundation .I hope to find out soon whether it has been accepted into the exhibit or not .

I have also added some new pages to my blog which give a little bit of information about of my past and  early art inspiration My childhood art 1997-2000 and  Living in the wild 2004-2008

Starry Starry night completed

 I finished the painting last night and am pleased with the results,although I might still make a few tweaks here and there.Since this painting is mostly based on my imagination I am even more pleased with it,.It feels good to get away from relying on photos .Of course when you do this you are not going to get a photo realistic painting,but you do achieve something special.
