The portrait below went pretty fast I must say; this is maybe 2 and a half days worth of work or so. Not having to paint flesh tones makes things go way faster, which is why I am going to be hiring albino models from now on. Who knows, maybe I will even become a creepy clown painter. The subject is my friend and fellow artist Tara Juneau who never grew out of playing dress up, so it was an easy sell to get her to pose for this. Again it is another Day of the Dead themed work. It still has some more work to go, but it's getting towards completion.
Below that is a "Vanitas" still life I started...neat. It took about 10 days or so. I don't know what my obsession with the Vanitas theme is, but I think I need to stop listening to "The Cure" while planning my works.
