T-Shirt Tuesday – November 5 Edition

Drawing more guitars all the time, in preparation for the upcoming calendar. In the meantime, here’s another shirt – a Fender Jazzmaster, from the 60s:

T-Shirt Thursdays, Round 07

A last-minute idea today:

So here we are at another milestone in the epic journey towards my one-thousand-day goal. Six hundred days. Puttered around with three small pieces to get up to speed today. A little drybrushing, a coat of clear…

After that the goal was to finish one of the big metalflake paintings. This particular one is titled “Power Trio” – think Rush, Cream, or the Jimi Hendrix Experience. First I did a couple hours of masking (my back and shoulders are still thanking me for that):

Once that was nailed down, it was time to slap on a bit of titanium white:

Eventually all the white areas were done, and the tape came off. Then I took the painting out on the balcony to take advantage of the early-evening light:

And that one’s a wrap. I’m exhausted – done painting for the night.

600.


Well, things are proceeding nicely. Out of the twelve 8×8-inch paintings, eleven are now done. Just finished this one late last night (or was that early this morning?):

And I designed the lineart for another of the 8×24 pieces this afternoon:

The biggest hurdle to get past now is building up the layers of clearcoat on the remaining paintings. Love to get these finished by the end of August, so I can book the space for the show in September.

Oh, and I’ll be spinning another painting off from this series – a friend has commissioned a big, expensive abstract piece. So essentially I’ll be eliminating the white lineart that graces all the others and just going with a similar colour/texture combo. I may do a keyline in gold leaf, though. Just to show the depth of the clearcoat.

Good times.
