I've been an especially busy painter of late. I'm working on a collection of paintings all based on body paint shoots I've done. The jumping off point is referencing a pose, sometimes exaggerating it or altering that original shot slightly..... you know, artistic license and all. But the essence is drawn from a body paint photo. As with these two paintings, I used the exact pose and colors from the body paint session on the canvases here. The black lines were inspired by other shoots I've done. My model for these is a very accomplished photographer named Dylan Rosser who photographs undressed men beautifully. Here are those paintings.
These are both 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas and this one is available. Speaking of artistic license, Dylan's nose is nowhere nearly this long but being the proud owner of a large nose myself, I often times get a bit carried away when depicting that body part. What can I say, I like big noses.
You can see Dylan's work here but be forewarned, It's full male nudity. You're welcome.
Sometimes it can be hard to know when a painting is completed but I think this one is officially done. It's based on a body paint I did roughly two years ago. 18" x 24" with ink, watercolor, and gouache on paper.
A little more show and tell... This was a commissioned painting of Bethenny Frankel on Chelsea Handler's show. Every aspect of the photo was as the client requested. My apologies though... this is an iphone photo. Acrylic on a 24" x 18" canvas.
By the way, if you're interested in commissioning me to do a portrait or caricature, please email me. Thanks!
This is an oil painting I recently finished. It's 13" x 13" painted on a wooden panel. So much of my work both for pay and for fun is rather tight. Working in this more loose/ painterly style is freeing and very enjoyable. Hope you'll like.
