Dead Is The New Sexy – Part 1

While I started this painting in tandem with the Watson one, I ended up finishing them separately. And by finishing, I mean that as of this writing, this painting is not done.

This one did paint itself a lot faster. Having one done gave me direction for the next,


Working with glazes and translucent colours here.


The progression moved quickly from this point on. Layers of colours. Lots of neons. Paintings with neon colours really need to be seen in person. I find the colours don’t photograph well on my phone.


I love shadows. They are never, ever flat. Finding that subtle change of colour, blending things together, really make shadows work.



To be continued…woot!
