Just spray everything with wolf urine and put bees on a fence, for protection, so noone can take your January grayness. This is of most importance.
The purpose of this blog is entertainment only, I don’t know what I’m talking about, everything I say is fabrication and in fact, I am completely insane. (a lovely disclaimer via a random cringe-binge video)
In other news, I have been enjoying oil painting every now and then, I used Adorkastock as model because she has a bunch of great references. For example, this face of pure question:
Just to try something realllllly crazy, I painted some of this month’s ravens with blue ink instead of black.
Just a unicorn stepping out of a rainbow mist!
Do you remember the oil paint smell! It’s so good! So I took the paints out and felt like painting, I started with a couple of landscapes, and then a couple of rush portraits. You need to paint sometimes or you will forget.
My sister is sometimes making photoshoots for creative purposes, so I lent some portrait photos from her shoots for reference with her permission. It’s pretty hard to find serious portrait references.
The first portrait started out as a realistic one but then I painted over it and made it into a blue vampire.
Photograph and model:
The second portrait from this month, is another model from my sisters photoshoots.
The rainfrog gathering thoughts in the river in a -5F breeze, to write a book about winter swimming.
The rainfrog really needs to read if the plague ended already, but can’t see over the paywall and there is no known way around it.
The Christmas is done, let’s do spring now.
Sometimes you forget, but despite the cute bally appearance, the rainfrog is a frog of prey.
A problem I’ve been wondering about is how to display art and giclee prints on a photo backdrop, and how to create a light box. There are so simple answers for most of the things, but I always circle back to them. After thinking about building this and that, I figured it would be most creative to just draw it. So I’ve been spending time painting the backdrop and also using some old paintings, and here are the first trials.
I experimented with a recent 8x12in ink painting.
