The hot sauce is from my paintings a day over at my other blog. It's a great challenge to paint liquid. This made me think I want to try to paint a spill. Next project!
I usually put my Illustration Friday posts on my older/other blog but I thought I should start to revive this one which is attached to my website. I really just went for this one, it's a bit crazy, odd, it was what came to mind on short notice.
I decided to play with acrylic paints, This is the first. Acrylic on watercolor paper.
I'm running out of time since I need to finish this and ship it by next Tuesday and I have a ton of work in my schedule. So they will just get looser and quicker.. It's a good demand to have put on me anyway..! The top one took about 1 1/2 hours and the bottom was maybe 45 minutes.
I told someone I was doing this last night and she just said whooo?

Day 2 of Why does the Owl make everyone laugh? I haven't answered the question yet.....
I'm finally getting to my Sketchbook Project Limited Edition. It's due in 15 days...I chose the theme Why did the owl make everyone laugh? Well why not? I'll post my progress daily here.

"The Renaissance Portrait from Donatello to Bellini" I was particularly
taken with the profiles of many of the subjects. I loved breaking it down
