Here is the making of "Lobster" It is approximately 2ft x 2ft. Drip and watercolor. The image I used was from a trip I took to Belize about a year ago. He was a feisty little guy. He inspired me so!
I had been wanting to do a really vibrant painting of the female angler fish ever since I read this article on The Oatmeal and let's not forget the angler on Finding Nemo. Frightening!!! I think they are so amazing. I hope you do too.
This was my first attempt at doing drip on regular ol' mixed media paper. The watercolor was addded after it was dry. Enjoy!
Part 1 - Drip
Part 2 - Watercolor
Hey everybody! As some of you know I recently tried out a new medium of painting that is much different then the watercolor and ink that you have been seeing. I did a very large self portrait made entirely from dripping black water-based paint onto a 3x3 feet canvas: "Facing the Lines". I was so excited about the end result that I created another portrait the next day: "Fille en Bleu".
This is the third and my largest painting so far. Enjoy!
