What's this? Real paint?!?!?



















Yep! It's an acrylic painting by yours truly. Currently sitting on my Bob Ross brand table easel. Can you believe it? I actually started this some time ago, as a personal challenge to break out the "natural media" paints again. I am pretty happy with the results, but have some issues with it as well. But this could be the start of a whole new series of analog paintings, what do you think?


I have updated the image. I re-took the photo and adjusted it to be more accurate to the actual colors of the piece....

Thats freakin' sweet. Comes off as inky, more than acrylic at a glance. That use of the medium is interesting and fun. : )

Neat paintin sir, there's a funny little trick going on, where the creature's leg gets that atmospheric perctive similar to the clouds. It really makes him seem more gigantic than he actually is. Which is neat. Its so tough to get acrylic paint to integrate with the surrounding colors in any palette or image.
