Randomly decided to do an actual painting yesterday and this happened after like 2 hours. Then I probably spent another hour spread out over the night of tweaking while watching youtube. I don't think I have actually tried to paint Paul before? I think I have drawn him a few times though. Of all eras, I think the granny vest era
if my fav.
I have been having a hard time doing artwork lately, I have a few projects started but I am dragging along in finishing them. So I was kinda surprised this was finished in a day and it felt good so I may end up doing more. I'm thinking a headshot of Mick Jagger might be next, I'm on a Stones streak lately. Maybe Brian Jones would be fun too. Or maybe Tom Petty?! ahh I am thinking of so many ideas rn...................... Anyway, I usually get caught up in the technique of painting and it burns me out and makes me not want to paint but this one seemed to flow right along. All I did was do a detailed sketch then throw some color under it (I did
color pic from the reference photo for the base colors) then just throw another layer on top and start carving out everything. I really like leaving lines in there. Reference photo
