Gouachey Paintings

Work has been S-L-O-W. So slow that I got the chance to clean up my room, dust off the gouache and play a little. I haven't painted in three years so I'm a starting out simple. Mmmm. Love the smell of gouache. (it tastes good too!)

In both cases I started with plain illustration board and no preconcieved ideas. Just laying down the paint and seeing what happened.

Those are cool! I especially like the light bulb for a head surrounded by a cage. But don't you think both paintings would be better served if there was some kind of Ellis-like head? Creeeeeeee-eeee-PEEEEE!

stellar work, Skrib! If work is slow you can come to my office... I'll put you to work! We can use any hands we get!

TopCat said...

We should all draw Rick some hands that he could use ... big ones, small ones, crooked ones, tasty ones ... ones like Ellis' (or Senior Buncake's ...).

Great work, Skrib... very fun!

I love that Robot. Great sillohuette. I love the red contours and the lost edges where strokes went over the ribs and shoulder area. Doubly impressive that you started without any sort of plan.

Thanks all (minus Scott) .

Ellis- I like the dry brush effect too. It wasn't planned but I left it in just to give it that non computery look.
