Some random cartoony paintings…(part 1)
Posted by eyeofthehurricane99 on June 10, 2009
So, here’s some paintings I started while I was working on another, much bigger painting.
Made these while I was sitting waiting for the paint to dry on something else, basically.
Because we all know the saying about watching paint dry…
This is the tiniest of them- just about an inch and a half square.
That big gray blob is a paint stain- I used this little teeny canvas to hold up the bottom
of this huge painting while I painted the edges.
Even my paintings multi-task, right?
Every time I’ve painted fish, they look sort of like this. I see fish as always just slightly above neutral, disposition-wise. But never very bright.
They always look like they’re having fun, though.
On to bigger fishes:
This guy’s about 3 x 3 inches. Doesn’t he look like fun?
I bet he’ll play some games with you before he eats you…
If you look close at the pencil lines on this shark painting, you’ll see I sketched out a drawing (which I scrapped) for this next painting:
That previous sketch had the perspective a little weird for me. But, of course, I’m not going to waste a canvas over that.
I like this one much better. Might lose the ‘steam lines’- they look too much like ‘stink lines’! And who wants stinky dessert, really?
This one, a friend (another friend’s boss’s girlfriend) named Cheri asked me to make this for her kitchen. Cherry, Cheri- get it?
Any way, you’ll see these painted soon. Promise.
