Hello Cupcakes! I've been buzzing around the studio working on a new series about persona and disguise. I'm excited to give you a sneaky peek!
All of my pieces start with a grid drawing and a complementary under painting--I think under painting is really crucial for creating cool, believable skin and makes your pallet pop. Like most of my pieces, this painting is life size.
Here she is with another layer of under painting--all blue and
alien-corpse-like. To be honest, she was going to stay blue, I liked the contrast between the cool skin and the marigold background.
Hooray for skin! After looking at it with my nose all crinkled up, I decided that this was going to be a warm painting after all. I've got a LONG way to go before she's finished--she needs some proportion adjustments as well as all of her accouterments, bells, whistles and....Glitter!!
Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion of The Paint Party Skully Diary!
