Day 2, so I started to work on the face since the body alone just looked creepy. It is coming along and still has a few more layers to go. This will be painted over usually 5 times before the depth, values, etc start to work well.
Sketch of my newest painting. It will be large 30" x 48" The working title will be Ravenna, Ravenna's name comes from the name Raven, meaning "death" or "doom". She will have a tattoo of ravens flying up her side and back. An actual raven will flying in the upper right corner.
What is my art? My preferred medium now are oils. I worked years in acrylics since I hate having to spend so much time cleaning brushes and I liked that my paintings are dry within hours. But now all that has changed. I love being able to work the next day in wet paint and the brushes really are no bother.
I love the big massive clouds, marshes, swamps and wild places we have in Florida and what may be hidden within.
My latest works have been mainly portraits. At the Gasparilla Festival of Art where they accepted me as an "emerging artist", there was much interest in my portraits, so I have decided to pursue this a little further.
I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Which by the way, I am the owner of a comic bookstore.
