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,

Be carefull what you agree to.

Ok, there is story behind this painting. I asked my brother for idea for a painting. I asked him for three ideas and I would play this through as an Art director giving me an assignment. Now I don’t know how many hours my brother and I played D&D, collected comicbooks together and generally shared a Love for most things fanasty and science fiction. Well He suprised me with the request to paint nothing to do with those two categories. He asked me to Paint our dog in the park playing ball.

I hate painting grass, I try to avoid it at all cost, but I decided to make this into a grass painting study. I really hestitated sharing this, I feel like I was hardly above water while painting this. And Bro if you’re reading this, sorry but I did the best I could.

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,

One of the positive affects of inktober is that my sketching skills have improved. I am falling behind though, but I’ll do all 31 days.

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,

Bill
