Most recently, I've been painting a portrait of Steve Irwin wrestling a heavenly crocodile. 'Nuff said! He's still in the works; I'm going to bump up the value of the clouds in front of him, do a little bit more on the crocodile, and fix those hands but he's about six hours away from being finished. I'm painting in oil (titanium white, cad yellow, magenta, burnt sienna, pthalo blue, burnt umber) on a gessoed wood panel.
Here are some other painted studies from models. Each is about 25 minutes.
Also I'm working on a poster for The Detroit Shoppe for their new location at Somerset Mall. The poster is art deco themed, and it will be another lino cut! I'm very excited about it, and it should be a good one!
