doing some spring cleaning in the studio while looking for a particular piece for a client, and I found a whooooollle mess of old drawings that I forgot about!! .
including a very old colored pencil portrait of @caradelevingne that I did ohh idk like 5 years ago 😳
SWIPE to see it! ➡️😭
Finished! "Tonic" - oil painting on canvas - 24x24" - available, $1400 CDN. Swipe for all the progress shots! The lilypads rest on the sunlit surface, but are tethered deep below in darkness, and return there once they fade.
This painting was a long time coming and truly felt like a tonic for me - my studio is my refuge, and studio time in summer is hard to come by as a parent.
Come hell or high water (pun intended) I'm finishing Panel 6 today. I have Virgil's head and the complex chair below Minos. That should be the whole day. Can't wait to show the full painting! Oil on AlumaComp 48 x 60" work in progress
