Brains


I like drawing brains, I don't know why.

This painting is 9"x12" ACRYLIC ON CANVAS.

I've started playing with texture and used a medium on the canvas for the first time. I want to explore using this technique more, a lot of fun accidents happen when dealing with a textured canvas.

I should scan the page of my sketchbook where I came up with this thing. It was an odd progression.

The painting is called, TREE OF KNOWLEDGE.

What a fun painting! It looks like you painted on Stucco. The textures looked difficult to paint on, but looks Super-Cool.

Whew textures feel and look really great! Especially in the red areas. How's it living further up North?

Thanks everybody.

Gerald, I was surprised how easy it was to paint on the texture actually. I thought it was going to be a lot trickier than it actually ended up being.

Le - Living up north is GREAT. How are things with you?
