Live Painting - in the booth at WonderCon

A couple weeks ago, we (Rev Art Academy), had a booth at WonderCon.  I did this painting on the Saturday of the con in the booth.
It was a fun convention, smaller scale than ComicCon.  We met some new people, saw good friends, a lot of cool stuff and awesome cosplay.. and had fun painting.  All around good time.

Lenora - small 4x4" painting

Lenora - mixed media (acrylic, then oil) on board, 4x4"
Posted this very small painting (4x4") - Lenora - on Happy to say that it sold that same morning. There is a lot of build-up of layers of texture in acrylic and thick layers of glazes in between each texture layer. The face/top layer is in oil. It's fun to see in person because the layering creates a neat depth that is otherwise very difficult to photograph.

another sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook

acrylic sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook
..another sketch in my book of Kells sketchbook. I started the sketch on the right side first, and the look of how the crows are shaped around the head reminded me a bit of Klimt's “Mermaids” painting.. so the left side was added later as sort of an homage to that painting. This is acrylic, with a little bit of graphite – and some sanding and scraping too. The words on the left page are from the text on the book page showing through, which reads “the head appears in various guises”. (9x6”)
