    11x14 canvas, acrylic paints

    I need to get a better picture of this one tomorrow (you can see a slight shadow in the upper right corner and there's some glare coming off the black). I almost feel like there are 2 separate ideas here and they each need their own canvas to fully develop. Something to think about...

    -edit- updated with a better picture, but now there's a shadow in the bottom left

    updated the images. it's REALLY freakin hard to get even, non-reflective light on a canvas that big with a black background. maybe I need to use a CP filter when I photograph it

    This one is hard to say .. Had to paint the black then let it dry. I did this over 2 different days too. I dunno, maybe a couple hours? I generally have a good idea of what I want to paint before I start

    i want to see you paint something complex and badass. it can still be abstract and nonobjective, but paint something with more complexity. dont be afraid to fuck up your canvas, you can always paint over it. i took several painting classes in college and thats what my professor might say :mamoru:

    try spending more time than usual developing your idea/painting. once you get it to a point where you like it, add something that really throws off the balance. then you'll be forced to correct the composition and paint more shit. haha. and just for the record i like this one better than your last one.

    Starting a monster on a 2ft x 2ft canvas today. Weather's perfect, I feel inspired, hopped up on painkillers.
