Painted Roses: Ayama (WIPs + SF Group Show)

Hey everyone, here is a new painting of Vaunt from the Painted Roses series. This one was done for the Gauntlet Gallery's 12x12 Show.

I took some WIP shots of it while I was painting it. You can see the grid method I use to help with accuracy. You can also see what it looks like once I tone the canvas. I'm working on developing a more interesting textural surface as a starting point. Click on the photo to get a close-up look at the surface.

Check out the video I made about how I toned this canvas without completely destroying the underdrawing.

Here is the finished piece. In terms of color, it's one of my favorites I've done of Vaunt. I also like some of the direct brushwork in her face, especially the nose.

The show is "CA 12X12" and it's open-theme. The only stipulation was that we painted our pieces on a 12x12 in. board. There are some good names participating in the show. Lots of familiar names and heavy hitters, including:
  • Akira Beard
  • John Wentz
  • Justin "Coro" Kaufman
  • Kate Zambrano
  • Kieran Collins
  • MJ Lindo 
  • So Youn Lee

And many others. I encourage you to check out the whole lineup and maybe RSVP if you're in the Bay Area.
