Retarded New Video/Morning Warm up Pieces + Finishing up “Bear Beast” Commission

Hi again,

I’ve made some good progress on the “Bear Beast/Pipe Fetish” commission.  Should be finishing it up today or tomorrow. It’s a little tricky because I’m having to use small brushes…soft small brushes that is.  I prefer stiffer bristles for oil.  Note to self….pick up some small “Stiff” brushes! Anyway, I had hoped to keep the pallete a little more simple, but there are many different gradients in the flesh of the reference study I created prior to actually putting paint to paper….I paint from observation mainly…so the various tones are showing up in actual painting.

I started doing daily “Warm up” pieces again prior to studio work.  I had forgotten how well these loosen me up prior to studio work.  Here are a couple.

Also, in my free time, I made a rather retarded, but well produced video short featuring the “Studies for upcoming oils” that I blogged about last week.  I always try to make my videos fun, so give it look and feel free to tell me what you think.

Until next time,
