8 x 8
Oil on Panel
Randall Cogburn


Had some fun designing and painting this one. I had, key word here is had, an idea of making this painting more blown out. Well eventually, I said no this painting deserves some contrast to help the design. Initially I started out with a pencil sketch with no value what so ever except how hard I pressed down on the charcoal to make the lines. 

If you wandering which frame to get for one of my paintings I like the La Paz frames from King Of Frame out in Costa Messa California. They have a bunch of different designs and get the floater frames since they work real well with the small 8x8 frame size allowing more of the painting to show.


  1. This is beautiful. It reminds me of a painting I have, of a fisherman on the sea. You are one of the greats, you know.
