David Sylvian

David Sylvian
Acrylic on Canvas

I experimented with a watercolor-style on this acrylic painting of David Sylvian.  I did the initial sketch with very thinned-out blue paint instead of the usual 3B pencil.  Most of the paint applied was very watery to get the desired effect.

If anything this experience has made me want to pursue pure watercolor painting.  I’m working on my drawing skills now and hope to get my feet wet with watercolors soon.

I’m paying my dues as a beginning painter by tackling the classic still life painting.  I learned a lot from this exercise and hope to do more in the future.

Still Life Photo Shoot

I captured these still life images using my Canon 5D Mark III and a Flashpoint XPLOR 600 flash unit.  My main goal was to produce some good subjects for painting and I think I’ll have enough to keep me busy for a while.
