#149 Relax

Painting during my break from my reversal. that's a good thing right? I think that's a good thing.


  1. Aww, it's so cute. You're at that painting level where your brush strokes are nice and expressive and efficient. :)

    The only thing I have to say is the twinning of the purple clouds. It makes the composition more static. Otherwise, awesome!! :D

  2. Hell yeah man! This is got that clean, saturated color and brushstrokes; you gotta show me how to do that!

  3. Jon: oh yea, Didn't think about that. good point. thanks!

    Taylor: Thanks!

    Throughout the painting, whenever I feel the color is off, I open a new layer set to color or overlay or softlight, take a large round soft brush set to low opacity, and just mess around with various warms and cools throughout the painting. I think thats how i get those saturated colors you're talking about. but be carful with these special layer types. they can make or break a painting.

    As for the brushstrokes, I'ts probably that last 15% of my painting where im tightenting up edges once im happy with everything else.

  4. I dig this one! I can see Goro fugita in you from this piece!
