The dead coloring for my first larger-than-life Salome painting is complete! Here’s a close-up of part of the painting to whet the appetite.
Today I completed the dead coloring of the Belvedere torso cast painting. Hopefully this layer will dry quickly! In the meantime, I can start drawing my larger painting on its canvas.
Today I just finished this oil painting of a Red Panda.
My work has been moving so quickly after I returned from Singapore! Next up, a landscape / architectural painting.
First, I completed a 15 by 20 inch painting of a Brassolaelia orchid. This is a collaboration with Singaporean photographer Simon Ho.
Second, this weekend I finished my tiger painting for Forest Rain Gallery in Singapore. It is a 40 x 26 inch oil painting on canvas. The work follows the same Neo-Decadent aesthetic of my chimpanzee painting, Willie.
Here is the finished David and Goliath painting. Once it is completely dry for varnishing, I will rephotograph it because at that point all the colors will be vibrant and glossy.
Now the only things left do to in the painting are the hair and a background re-touch to reduce chroma.
Since I have finished the Zoo paintings for now, I have returned to my David and Goliath copy. I have been working on his clothing at the moment. Stripes – they are incredibly tedious work but the final effect is always pleasing.
