This is a painting study I did of a couple friends riding with me on the bus in Oakland.
This image shows the actual photo I used as reference for the painting. Made the drawing on the spot from life.
My first published book of drawings is here!!!
I'm so thrilled to have this finally completed.
Purchase a copy!
So after i did the initial sketch of Ruth Smith I tried varnishing it. The only thing is I was moving really fast and accidentally got some white gouache in my varnish mix, this created white streaks across my painting. I was a little ticked off at first (just a tad). I slept on it. This morning I woke up pumped to fix the painting (for some strange reason because I never fix paintings or drawings). The photo I posted in my previous post on Facebook and this blog was the only reference I had to work from... oh and memory (smilely face). Took about 20 mins but I repainted aspects of the sketch and actually I think it looks awesome!!!
