Here is another commission I'm begining. This one will be splashed in front of the audience for the demonstration. I have 9 more days to prepare. This one was a little tough because I had to adjust her sitting position to look a little more comfortable... Painting will begin tomorrow!
Here's the second round of splashing... The colors start becoming more intense and I'm starting to see where I want to take it!
Now the color is beginning to come in... This stage takes days. I splash it and drip it and slowly build color and texture. I will put in the finishing touches on November 9th at the demonstration I'm doing for the Valley Watercolor Society in Tarzana. Tomorrow I will begin the drawing for another commission. I need three stages of my work in order to do a demonstration. Each piece takes so long and I only have a couple hours...
I was able to make some good progress over the weekend. Unfortunately, I have to stop for now. I plan on practicing the graffiti tonight. It will be interesting to try to mimic spraypaint with watercolor.
Now the road is in... I need to pick up some more masking fluid today so I can finish the buildings. I need it for the graffiti.
So I am way behind! I still have to finish this drawing tonight. I want to be painting by tomorrow. Let's see if I can hold myself accountable.
