This is old Tumblr news, but it took me a while to construct this post because I was having trouble with looking for the documentation of progress. I’m really tired now, though, so whatever, this is what you get! It’s kind of funny how it took me six months and a day to finish one a 3 ft. x 3 ft. painting. But, in my defense, I stopped for a solid three or so months (August-October) and just started painting again in November.
I’ve gathered some nifty photos of how it all came to be. I started the painting on the 5th of June this year. Suffice to say, I had no idea what I was doing. It might be of interest to you (?) but I’m definitely glad to see the progress. Yes, I’m done, and I’m also almost done with the significantly smaller piece I am working on. I’ve always been wary of painting, but that’s because watercolors and acrylics dry out on me too soon. I honestly think that oil was the medium made for me, and I’m definitely glad I tried it out.
Not too bad for a n00b, yeah? I think it looks pretty good in black and white. :)
P.S. I’m aware that this was part of Peregrine Honig’s final show on Work of Art. I started the painting in June, started watching the show in July, and was super surprised to see it there. Hopefully, Ms. Honig doesn’t mind.
Photos under the cut. Sorry for the ramble!
