I've been taking photos of my models and also of scenery. I put the two together and like the effect. These are trial runs of what I'm going to do more of. I'm also trying painting from the photographs. After doing well in an art show in a science-fiction convention I decided to get serious about doing art for sf conventions. I'd like to have a combination of models, drawings, photographs, and paintings. In the last few days I've been trying to figure out the best way to mount paintings. I'm working with watercolor crayon on clayboard. I want to make my imaginary world believable as if I really saw this ground effect craft flying over the water. I'd like the freshness of painting outside from things that are moving.
