This is how I like painting, I get right to the point even with the blockin.

I’ve seen many artists work the entire painting all a once. It’s a very good method but I don’t like it because I feel that I’m fighting with inaccurate painting that has just covered up all my drawing. So I try to paint as accurately as I can at the beginning. I paint thinly for the blockin, and yes I will go over the entire painting at least twice but this way I have a really accurate foundation to adjust for subsequent layers.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
