Crocodile

$75.00

This crocodile has presence and power. He is obviously a strong and dangerous predator in his world. Painting him gave me the opportunity to evoke that ominous feeling and to be creative with reflection on water.

I chose to use tints of green with purple glaze to create shadows, and yellow for golden highlights. Swampy water obscures his reflected image so I used tints of brown staying true to the lights and shadows of his form. To create the ripple effect in the murky water I used blue glaze over saturated brown. —Donald Ryker

Donald Ryker has been painting since his teens. He was inspired to begin painting when he discovered he could use a hard hat on his head to direct his brush. He has lived his life with cerebral palsy and was thrilled to find an outlet for his creativity and a way to communicate his love of life, and his message to people that anyone can accomplish things in life if they are creative and persistent; there is always a way to find the positive in life. Ryker's paintings reflect his joy in life, and his desire to connect. His artwork inspires others with his choice of color and ability to draw in his viewer.

 

FINE ART PRINTS

Donald Ryker is now offering fine art prints directly to his fans and collectors. These prints are created on artist-selected paper, with inks and finishes that Ryker has determined most closely capture the look of his original paintings.

These open-edition prints use the finest Epson inks available. These prints are designed to last a lifetime without fading, as long as they are not hung in direct sunlight. The high-quality paper provides a consistent and smooth printing surface that allows for an incredibly wide color gamut and deep rich blacks. The semi-gloss finish ensures full color saturation and adds a protective varnish over the print. There is no embellished texture applied to the prints; the photography of the painting accurately captures the beautiful texture of a Ryker original.
