236 Unique Pet Portrait

Standard

I have to admit I was a little worried this photo wouldn’t translate to a painting well.  But once I laid out the black areas the composition was pretty cool.  I wish I would have snapped a picture of that stage.  Here is one shortly after:

I found a pint of “disney pink” paint at the landfill a while back and it has been my favorite base color to paint with.  Especially with people – the flesh tones just turn out so warm.  I have been thinking about my collection of house-paint that I use to paint with and am hoping to feature that aspect in the upcoming art fair I’ll be in next month.  Maybe I’ll figure out a way to have pictures of my studio filled with paint pints and tupperwares of landfill paint that I use to paint every painting.  I tried reverting back to tubes of basic colors but I just love how opaque house paint is!  So I’m sticking with it.

I originally got the idea from my artist friend Mollie Freeman.  Check her out here.

Anyways.  I had fun painting these characters!  Two very interesting faces to paint.
