Here’s my latest 4 grubs: Watchmen themed! Grubs are a hobby of mine outside of painting. They’re really like my little children. I’m nuts. I know. 🙂
This is my favorite part of a painting’s progress! I love working on tiny details. Here I tightened up the hair, her arms, hands, lighting, fish, and fins.
Here’s a little more work on it… I’m pretty happy with it so far!
About 2.5 hours after the previous one.
About 1.5 hours after the previous one.
Another “out from the sketchy murkiness” painting. I wish I’d taken a capture of this earlier when it was just blobs. Alas.. This is about 1.5 hours in.
This was a really fun experiment: all one layer, no refs, and I just kind of let it guide itself. It had a very natural feel to it – layers are just encumbering when compared with the freedom of putting paint on the only layer available. I’m definitely gonna do another one soon and see if it goes as well as this did.
Spent about 2 hours on this, starting with an empty canvas. I guess I really felt like painting today! I’m thrilled with how this came out – I started with nothing and just added more colors in blotches until I could “see” something shaping up in it. I continued to work in details from there. I think I’ll do more like this. I don’t know if I’m done with this one yet or not- I’ll see if I’m still interested in it next time I paint. 🙂
I spent a few more hours on it. It’s getting close! I think I can wrap it up in just one or two more sessions. I think I’ve spent too much time on it already.
