Artist Statement
for Rick Martin Sr.
Rick Martin Sr.Love to draw and engage with other artist of similar interest and styles. Mostly self taught and still learning. There are so many talented artist to converse with, learn from and emulate on this great website of "Paintings I Love".
Glad to be a supporting member.
Thanks to all for your many compliments and inspiration.
I didn't find this one easy to paint but feel my reference material let me down as I didn't have enough detail to understand full and it was probably a mistake...
Animals are difficult and i is important to have sufficient reference shots to give the correct physical characteristics. I think you did a great job on them... view answer
