16in X 16in Oil on Board
Jon and Ryan (Midas Whale (look them up)) were super awesome and let me do some artwork for their new album "Sugar House." The first image is a bad photo I took of the painting in terrible light (still trying to figure out how to take good photos of alright artwork), and Ryan's sister helped make the piece something that stands out! I learned a decent amount from this piece and I remembered how frustrating it is to wait for oil paint to dry!

First painting in a while I feel is up to blog quality. I have started learning how to glaze oil paint properly. I am really liking the technique, but hating the amount of time it takes. I also really miss all the brush stroke texture and the thickness of the paint in alla-prima style. I am fighting every urge to lay on some thick paint and go for it, seriously it's hard to do! I do however slightly enjoy the perspective this gives me on the slowing down and really delving into a process. I think I am going to start a couple of this close up portraits and try to flush out this technique a little bit.
