Psalm 118: Commission Painting

If you keep track at all of my newly added Instagram page I recently added a new job to my projects list. You can check out the proposal below:

This particular work is typography based but with still have a little Dream Shop flair.

It’s taken a moment to get more canvases in but I’m back at it with my pile of Apple Barrel, Folk Art, and Blick Artist Acrylics. I’ve started with using a little antique white and cadmium red to start building up my base of colors. Red acrylics tend to lay out thin and sometimes see through, and work better together in layers. I’m purposely leaving the center of this piece lighter than the edges. After the first coat I gradually faded in a few more darker shades I’ve concentrated closer to the edge and corners. (Just mouse over the photo below to see the progress thus far.)

Jesus Wept: T-shirt Reproduction Commission

I’ve gotten a few projects out of the way and now trying to gather supplies to work on my 18×24″ canvas project I mentioned in a earlier post. I’ve had my canvas picked out but I’ve needed a photo copy of the shirt I’ve been asked to recreate using my own creative license. This client inherited one of my earlier paintings and would like to see what I can pull off with his old favorite shirt below.

“Jesus Wept” client’s original screen print shirt I have to work from.

 

I like the idea of keeping a black background, but I’d like to make the tiger a bit more realistic perhaps. My mind is still rambling on with many ideas to sort out on this one!

Stay tuned as I will have more updates to follow as I get started!
