Chippin' Away At My Centaurs...

Not quite ready for their guitar solo...


Am I in over my head with this painting?  Yes.
Do I know what I'm doing?  No.
Am I having fun?  Absolutely.

It's not been pretty working on these centaurs.  I have lines on top of lines.  The good news is, you can just paint over everything!

Will post more...

Bob, this is solid GOLD! What are your dimensions?

And,it's just as you say: opaque paints are our friends--cover up what you don't like!

This has been a long time comming, I've waited a lifetime to see centaurs rocking. well done

Bob Logan said...

HA! Thanks dgderrick! I should be listening to Rush's "The Fountain of Lamneth" while painting, but instead I'm listening to Broken Social Scene.

Oh well, Geddy Lee has a cameo in one of BSS's videos. Maybe that counts for something.

Anthony - I am currently wrestling with 36 x 48 inches of canvas madness! It's a lot bigger than the 8 x 10" canvases I've been working on. What am I learning? That any problems with applying paint grow exponentially with the canvas size. It's been fun though! Frustrating, but fun. It's weird.

Bob Logan said...

DSM- It IS like painting on a big, bouncy trampoline!

Unfortunately, I couldn't fit a drummer. But... there will be a tiny satyr playing a pan flute.

Its a huge relief knowing such an awesome artist dude such as yourself has no idea what hes doing too! This is looking fantasmo and thanks for serving the humble pie! To quote google word verification, "JEWIRM"!

What's been great about posting a work-in-progress is that I've met and chatted with many people who are painting, sketching, and experimenting with different mediums. I've gotten some great advice as a result.

I don't know what "jewirm" means. (sorry).
