Abstract Saturday: Cecil Skotnes

South African (1926 - 2009) He was best known for his woodcuts. Though he began as a painter, he was drawn to woodcutting and made his mark in that medium, later creating the woodcuts as the work itself by painting directly on the carved panel, rather than merely using them to create prints.

Creatures of the Night Part 8: "To Roost"

This is part of a continuing series of paintings in my sketchbook. It was meant to be a daily painting project throughout the month of October, but since I got sidetracked on another project, I'll keep on anyway.
