It was always fun, but playing with this technique is extra enjoyable. Here I did a portrait of a Bedouin man, Audrey Hepburn singing "Moon River," and some fancy geisha lady. I still want to play around with this but for a first serious initial attempt, I'm kinda sorta digging it.

Hey, so I've been going from blog to blog and stumbled on some new, for me, artists. A bunch of them worked on Coraline and have some of the production stuff posted. Very cool.
Other than that, I am painting and working like a street performing monkey on a unicycle with an accordion. I'll get smore things posted soon.

It was at this point when I submitted it for Society. Whoops.
This is where I am now with only a few more minor but still necessary tweeks here and there. So, rather than do those and get it done, I am choosing to start on a new big painting so I don't freeze up and get too particular with the editing. And I'm sick of looking at it. Sorry Patrick.
So, I've been having some fun with painting large as m independent study. My requirements are four total final pieces, none smaller than 36 inches on any side. The subject matter must include a figure in some environment. Basically, I love Hodges Soileau and I'm painting big people in places.
It begins here. This is my buddy Patrick who was so willing to pose for me in the middle of winter for the small cost of a hot cocoa.
