Sketchbook Sunday 11.21.2021

November 21, 2021

I was pleasantly surprised by this weekend’s speed paint. I thought my speed paint would take me the full five hours to do, but instead, I clocked in at around two hours. Technically I finished the speed paint at one hour and a half, but I had to do a few edits to get it looking the way I wanted.

But the best part of this weekend’s speed paint is that everything I did was from pure imagination. I was, of course, inspired by something in real life. I was looking at the “Free People” catalog and saw a girl with a cowboy hat. That photo became the impetus for my painting. Typically after getting an idea, I either look for free and available to use images to use for reference and/or I do my own 3D blocking to get my composition. This time around I didn’t depend on images and/or my 3D blocking. Everything I did was from my head. I don’t do this often, since the paintings I do that start out this way seldom ever look complete. “Cowgirl” however, look more finished than most of my speed paints. Granted I did photobash the sky in, and using that picture does give a more polished look… but given I did all that in about two hours is no easy feat.

Anyways… I will see you guys next week!
