Latest Commission: “Rainbowie”, 8″ x 10″, acrylic on canvas

This is a commission for a friend. She requested a portrait of David Bowie, based on a Google image. I added some gold and put my own spin on it. Keep scrolling to see progress images!

Props to my cousin for coming up with the clever name “Rainbowie”.

A commission I did last week for a friend. She requested three paintings of her cat, Jinx, in three different locations: Paris, the beach, and a ski mountain.

This was so fun to create – she gave me a lot of creative freedom with these pieces.

Note: The banana in the skiing scene & the Paris scene is Jinx’s favorite toy.

 

WATCH ME PAINT: TEACUP

This is another component of a digital painting commission. I may not even use this because I’m disappointed with the result. But, I thought I would share anyway since I took the time to record it. Maybe you can recognize some issues and learn from my mistakes.

For starters, my technique in this is so terrible. In addition, this painting took far too long and for a result that wasn’t even great in my opinion. Re-watching this is helpful for me so I can see what I could have done better to make things go more quickly.

Made using a Wacom Intuos Draw CTL490DW in Adobe Photoshop 2015.
