Abrictosaurus Day

10x20-ish oil on board

Painting from the Friday Destruction Derby Life Crusher Fest. They say they liked it flipp-ed this way. So I flipp-ed it. My foreshortening isn't too great so she's supposed to be lying on a couch. Apologies for the bad photo. I guess this was about 3 1/2 hours to paint.
The pianist in my ward. Don't know her too well. She exists on a different plane than me. Still she's nice. Except the range on this one is about 20 yards. There's hardly any likeness. An hour.

Hands from memory. I get certain angles right off the bat. When you get in trouble remember foreshortening and angles. Compare. . . widths. If that goes off then just use a model. That's the cool thing about hands is that most everyone has them. Thirty minutes.

A strummer! grrrrr~! Stop strumming and start wailing! Grampas' guitars. . . . sheesh. I like the little lines one the best. When lines get little, you'd better hope you've been watching. Cause I wasn't. Forty five minutes?
15 min man from "Boom! Head shot! drawing class" I so ungratefully sneaked into. So ungratefully~!

The Crocuses have risen~! The Marines of flowers. First in. . . uh, first out? Snow will still be on the ground and they got screaming up. Probably my favorite flower.

I finally watched Omohide Poro Poro again. I mean I went out of my way just to get this all the way from Hong Kong. Let me tell you. It is genius! Absolute genius~! I loved it. It changed my life. I'm filled with love because of this film. Please watch it.

Great job on finishing the painting from Fri. That's one of the hardest things to do for me is to come back and finish a piece. I like the cooler colors. Good drawings too.

I'm posting more regularly and have a link to your site too.

cheers,

Paul

I know how much you like the word painterly, so I will say that the painting of Meg is very painterly. JK. You do however get very far in your studies. That is something that I need to work on. I am super exited about the flowers blooming too. But April snow kills may flowers. Oh and I hear 300 is more metal than braces.
