Painting 30 0f 30 (!): “Neighborhood 1 – Tunnels” Ladies and Gentlemen, here is painting 30! Finally. This piece is inspired by the song “Neighborhood 1 – Tunnels” by Arcade Fire. When ever I listen to the song, I always get an image of houses buried under snow and people with really long, out-of-control hair [...]
Painting 29 of 30: “Crown Of Love” Idea Today’s painting is really more of a idea for something that I would like to use in a painting in the future. I did this based on one of my favorite songs “Crown of Love” by Arcade Fire (tomorrow’s painting is based off of one of their [...]
Painting 28 of 30: Kermit the Frog Since I had such a good time painting Gonzo at the beginning of this project I decided to do a companion piece of my second favorite muppet, Kermit the Frog. This is in gouache, same as the other one. As an added bonus, I’m including a Super Secret [...]
Painting 27 of 30: Abstract #2 Just another small abstract painting, using acrylic instead of gouache this time. For such a small painting (the picture is probably just a little smaller than life size) it turned out all right.
Painting 26 of 30: Night Owl A couple of years ago I had to do a portrait of what animal I thought I would be. At the time I did a mouse surrounded by candy, which I think might be floating around as one of my very earliest blog posts. Lately I’ve been feeling more [...]
Painting 25 of 30: Stencil Cat This is what I was working on last night, that I messed up on so badly. I was using a stencil to outline a cat shape and then use watercolors to color it in, but I didn’t wait for the paper to all the way so of course it [...]
Painting 24 of 30: You Are Here. It figures that my internet would come back right after I had complained about it. I really liked how the other one of these turned out so I did one that was sort of the opposite of it. There’s not much more to say about it.
Painting 23 of 30: Birthday Cake As many of you probably know, today is my birthday. I’m turning 23 and this is painting 23! (I wanted to do that, which is part of the reason I didn’t do a post yesterday. The other reason I didn’t was that I was at Outside Lands all day.) [...]
Painting 22 of 30: Tales From My Childhood part 1 This is actually a 100% true story. I was a nerdy kid. I’ll probably do some more of these little guys.
Painting 21 of 30: Imagination Garden So…colored pencil. At the beginning of this project I know I said I was going to try some different things rather than just paint only in acrylics. I have tried gouache but other than that I’ve mainly just been sticking with what I know, which is the biggest reason [...]
