Painting study: The Grape Picker from William-adolphe bouguereau

 

After multiple nasal infections, visiting family and other things that life throws at you, I’ve managed to finish this study. I didn’t get all the colors correct, but I’m happy with it. I’ll be starting a painting for our annual art fair and I wanted to use this Study to get the feel of bouguereau’s skin technique. He is the master of the beautiful skin Tones.

Thanks for stopping by,

Liberandum

Hey people,
I decided to try something different on this one. The last couple of weeks I read a few Tutorials in how to digital paint over different mediums. I wanted to try this, so I made a really tight drawing and then proceeded. I also wanted this to be different in terms of subject matter, so I also wanted the painting to have a 1970s science fiction feel to it. I will be doing more of these and will limit it for the time being to sci-fi themes.

By for now,

Bill

Noctis Malus.

Noctis Malus-webFirst, Merry Christmas to all. Second, I finished this last week and decided to show it this year. Maybe winter depression isn’t such a bad thing for painting.

Come good into the new year,

Bill

Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome.

My last inks for a while, I wanted Inktober to go out in a bang so I did a little tribute to Mad Max Fury Road. I also made this into a T-Shirt over at Redbubble. I’ve been squaring away my finanaces and other stuff that life throws at you so there has been little time to paint or draw. I still have a painting for a friend on my easel that quietly rebukes me every time I walk past it. I should be getting back into the saddle by next weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and remember: Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome,

Bill

Inktober 7-12 with 8 missing.

I spent the last week in Berlin, walking around and taking in the wonderful buildings and Museums, so I’m trying to play catch-up with the inktober themes. These are getting easier and I see an improvment, I’m not crosshatching wildly now over the whole drawing.

Thanks for stopping by,

Inktober day 5 and 6

I finally caught up. Each day has a theme, day 5 was long- she has long hair, a long sword and will have a long fall if she doesn’t make it. Six was sword, hey why not a ninja, everyone likes ninjas.

Rogue Assassin Process gif

Here is the GIF that I made of my last painting. I unfortunately only took four pictures, after the third pass I forgot and realized a day or two later, oh well. The underpainting got a little dark, because I didn’t spray the pencil drawing good enough with fixative. The graphite smudged a bit, which I thought at the time would ruin the painting, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks for stopping by,

Rogue Assassin

Hi people, here is my latest painting and also my fastest larger painting that I have finished so far. I will be taking a break from painting portfolio pieces and make something for a friend of mine. Next week I’ll share a GIF that I made documenting the steps in my painting. I also want to get ready for Inktober and will be doing a lot of sketching with inks, this should be fun.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bill
