Here's another commission I took to squeeze in before Christmas. This man is the husband of my client. I'm pretty sure he doesn't follow me so it is safe to post this. (It's his Christmas present)
The drawing is done and ready to paint!! Sebastian is doing his version along side me. I like his because he's putting in all the electrical wiring and plumbing. He is a natural with mechanical systmes drawing!
I will take a short break from this one to do another commission tomorrow...
Finally, drawing has begun! Progress is slow, however. I'm feeling kinda rusty! I should speed up as I go along...
This is what is soon to come! Thanks to my brother Jonathan... this picture is from up in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Work starts tomorrow. I've been on break for a couple weeks and I am looking forward to getting back to drawing!
I have the first phase finished. The spalshing will be done for a live audience at the demo in Tarzana this Wednesday. This has been a fun piece. I"m using hot press for the first time and I really like the way the pigments and the water move on this paper. I will definitely be getting more of this stuff in the future! Also, the entire painting has been done with an Escoda #8 round. Excellent brush with a great point!
This is another commissioned piece. The views expressed are not necessarily my own but I do find the drawing hillarious...
Well, we have an ocean! Now I have to stop because I have to deliver Kearny St. to it's new owners. Woohoo!!! As much as I love them, it sure is cool to see them go.
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!
