…wow …this is way cool…

It’s time for a new post… so here it is. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. People ask me, “Dennis… how are you able to continually post such high quality, interesting things on the internet? … your page is always so educational and inspirational”.

What can I say folks… it’s a gift.

The essence of this post seems to signal that Dennis is suffering the after effects of Cabin Fever. Spring break along with March Madness have ran their course and now it is time for… well, April madness. It’s been a long winter in Indie for Dennis Davidson.

wow, You mean grabbing your digital camera and clicking the first thing you see is a gift? and, I’ve been trying so hard to find mine…where’s my camera?

Dennis Jones

…oh man… I shouldn’t be giving all my secrets away on the internet…

Dan Lietha

Actually I think you’ve exposed your mutant status as one of those gifted people on the show HEROES. Some people can fly, others go invisible or can heal from any wound. You, well, your gift is beyond any of those mutant gifts. Beware of Sylar!

Dennis Jones

…almost right Dan… actually, I’m a mutant X-Man… I am wearing my blue spandex super hero suit as we speak…

Doug Jones

I just KNOW these colors are a secret code… and I will be working night and day to crack this code. I just hope it doesn’t tell me to “Be sure to drink my Ovaltine”

I think it’s “Be Sure to NOT drink the water you clean your brushes in.”

Dennis Jones

…but the water I clean my brushes with turns the same color as the coffee I’m drinking… it all gets so confusing sometimes…

Dan Lietha

Thus explaining the origin of your mutant abilities.

Doug Jones

I think I drank some of that water… I’m seeing strange faces in odd places…

Don Jones

I’ve sent the above image to Chloe O’Brian, a senior analyst at CTU. I believe her experience at CTU as an Intelligence Agent and Internet Protocol Manager will enable her to crack this color scheme and provide advice on neutralizing the acid reflux of this gouache infested water. As you probably know she displays extraordinary mastery of computer hardware and software but has horrible social skills… just like us Jones brothers.

Chloe

I’ve got no idea what this is…

Doug Jones

WOO! It’s the Middleaged Mutant Ninja Palette Man! where is his side kick… Donut boy?

Wow! I almost forgot it was LooseyGoosey Thursday until I sawDoug had a new sketch up for it. I’m putting up a couple more pictures out of my Moleskine Sketchbook. I hope Brother Don hasn’t forgotten about this…

How could I forget it when I didn’t even know it? I much prefer the Theologikal Thursday slant. It appears you are going to burn right through that new sketch book Den. Pace yourself man. You’re a PACER… act like one.

Dennis Jones

…hey, ya gotta burn thru a sketchbook before you get tired of it and start wanting a new different one …otherwise it will end up on a shelf with all the other unfinished sketchbooks you own…

Don Jones

Yes, indeed. I just had a thirty minute power nap. I’m good for another thirty minutes!

Doug Jones

had to umplug my computer this afternoon cuz of a giant red blob on the weather radar that showed lightning and TORNADIC activity right in my front yard! Now that I am back on.. I see I have almost missed out on loosey goosey Thursday… drat….

Dennis Jones

…well Doug, there’s always next weeks Loosey Goosey Thursday… see what happens when none of us will make a decision… we wind up with Loosey Goosey Thursday for a name instead of something more intelligent sounding like Thuper Art Thursday… when will we ever learn?

Mike

Greetings! This is one of my daily stops for fun and exciting things to see! I have what might be a strange question…maybe. What sort of color palette are you using for these paintings? I really dig the colors and all. I use the Moleskin sketchbooks but haven’t tried the watercolor sketchbook yet. I think the art store will really like me this weekend. Thanks again for sharing.

Dennis Jones

Hi Mike… since it is December and I live in Northeastern Indiana and it’s really cold and windy up here, I’m inside my nice warm house and using the same palette of gouache paints that I use on everything else… you can find the complete list of colors I use HERE. Basically white, orange, and burnt sienna for the flesh tones and black, burnt umber and maybe a little blue for the rest… I know, I know, you’re not supposed to use black because it will kill the color in your painting… but… I’m in a hurry to get to these done before I lose interest…

Don Jones

I got half way through your comment Den and my eyes gave out…
