Luckily I have just started a painting so I will be able to show the whole process of my work, I plan to photograph the painting along the way so anyone interested can see how my work is developing.
The painting I am currently working on is of a great bloke I have recently met called Kevin, he has a blog too but I don't know how to post links yet! I am planning on doing quite a few paintings of him because he has inspired me greatly. It seems I am not the only one to be inspired by him, there is another very talented artist called Peter Orrock who is also blogging about a painting he is doing of Kevin, yet again I would post a link if I knew how.
I work in a photo realistic style which obviously means I work from photographs. The picture I am working from was taken from a photo shoot I had with Kevin a while ago, it was our first photo shoot and it was really successful, he is a great model and I got loads of great pictures to choose from. I decided to choose the one I am using because it seems like the most classical style pose from the set and this was important to what I am doing for my current college project.
This is the image I am going to paint...
In my next blog entry I will show the first stages of the painting.
