wild skull hair and a developing painter


     I’m getting more comfortable with painting.  More than that, I’m starting to develop a taste for it.  This was completed back in August and I feel it really shows my increasing level of comfort with the medium.  I have this continually changing, dark slurry of colors in the center of my paint tray.  When I started on this guy’s hair, I just squirted a little yellow and a little blue into the slurry and just started painting, mixing the colors as I went.  The brush looked great, all swirled with yellow, blue and the almost blackness of the slurry base.  I just let the colors mix themselves on the watercolor paper with each brush stroke.  Fun fun stuff.

     Heh, I just finished scanning the last of my works for the OPG and it seems that I went JUST A LITTLE heavy on skeletons and skulls this year : P  And speaking of skeletons or (more specifically) skeletonians, be sure to get yourself signed up for the giveaway if you’d like a very good chance of getting some original artwork from yours truly.  They’re a bunch of fun packed into a small package but don’t take my word for it.

  1. There is no such thing as “too heavy” on the skellies and skulls.

    I like how the colors turned out. I'm no painter but I did experiment with painting in my youth, and watercolors are not easy to get used to. In my opinion, anyway. You are doing a fine job, sir. Glad you are having fun with it.

    I still need to think of a freakin' horror post. Why am I so lame that nothing has come to mind? I'm going on a road trip next weekend and will spend a total of 12 hours in the car by myself, so I'll have plenty of time to ponder.
