urban oils

Well it's been too long since the last post but better late than never I guess.

I finished up on "Astro Boy" with Imagi Studios late last year and now I'm back at DreamWorks designing on one of the upcoming films. I'm not sure how AB is looking but our design team came up with some very cool art last year so now we need to cross our fingers that it makes it to the screen....

Here are a few more of my gallery oils from my 2005 Howard Mandville Gallery show. I also included a pic of how I start these paintings. I usually cover the board in pure cad red light and work like mad to cover the brilliant color before all the cones and rods in my eyes go completely crazy. Not sure if you guys have tried to stare at something that bright, but man is it hard to do. I tend to be bolder with my color when keying off of this bright red.

I am scanning more of my outdoor guoache sketches so I'll try and post those next...

Jeremy Elder said...

Allright, I love these! I am glad you posted more. Interesting technique with the cad red too. I will have to try that sometime.

XaviC said...

Really fascinating these oils. The atmosphere you recreate make me travel to the 40's.
Very interesting the fact of starting with this base!?
Maybe you could som day share us a step by step from beginnig to the end from one of this wonderful oil paintings. That would be incredible to see!

Wish to see more of these marvelous pieces!

I'm a portuguese painter and I'm very impressed with this.

If you want visit my blog and see a discussion that happens there npw, about the actual ways of contemporary art. Use the translator tool to turn the portuguese in english and you'll see.
