Hey everyone, here is a new painting of Vaunt from the Painted Roses series. This one was done for the Gauntlet Gallery's 12x12 Show.
I took some WIP shots of it while I was painting it. You can see the grid method I use to help with accuracy. You can also see what it looks like once I tone the canvas. I'm working on developing a more interesting textural surface as a starting point. Click on the photo to get a close-up look at the surface.
Check out the video I made about how I toned this canvas without completely destroying the underdrawing.
Here is the finished piece. In terms of color, it's one of my favorites I've done of Vaunt. I also like some of the direct brushwork in her face, especially the nose.
The show is "CA 12X12" and it's open-theme. The only stipulation was that we painted our pieces on a 12x12 in. board. There are some good names participating in the show. Lots of familiar names and heavy hitters, including:
- Akira Beard
- John Wentz
- Justin "Coro" Kaufman
- Kate Zambrano
- Kieran Collins
- MJ Lindo
- So Youn Lee
And many others. I encourage you to check out the whole lineup and maybe RSVP if you're in the Bay Area.
