Acrylic trial

Here's the final painting by itself. Hopefully you could get a closer look at it when it's not group with the other stages.

My first attempt at a full acrylic painting. I included the different stages of its development. I decided today to buy a palette knife, so you could see how that was used on the last stage of this drawing. Although my desire to apply paint with the knife really goes against entire painting, but like I said, it's an experiment.

I have decided to work at a larger scale from this point on so my uploads will be far more infrequent because it just takes more time to complete a larger drawing/painting.

Queen West Art Crawl Art Show 2010

Well the Queen West Art Crawl Art Show is over for another year and it being my second art show that I've been in since I started this crazy journey as an artist, I have to say it was inspiring and humbling all at the same time. I met a lot of terrific people who I was privileged to have stop by my booth and chat for a while. I also met a lot of talented artists who gave me a bit of insight into this art game and its rules (or no rules, to be precise). Hopefully I'll be seeing all the people and artists I met this year, next year!

I'd like to extend a special thanks to Stephen Job and Stephen and Christy Richards for liking my art so much that you thought it'd look good in your respective homes.

The last 4…

In 5 hours I'll be getting up and starting my trek to the Queen West Art Crawl Art Show. These are the last 4 image/type vignettes I've been working on for the last little bit.

I had to use a different part of my brain to produce these images, for the most part which were from my imagination. I didn't realize it would have been so tough, but I guess sketching from real life and sketching from the imagination come from two different sources of the brain… at least for me.

I'd like to hear what your thoughts are for the "Spinning a Yarn" image. I just "finished" it a few minutes ago but it doesn't feel as completed as the others. Feed back would be appreciated.

Thanks all.

Urban Chariot

Here's number three of my image/type images for the show. I'm gunning for 10 pieces before Sept.18th. Panic has descended onto the Wong household.
