Tried Helio again. Think I painted him better this time. 16+ hrs. 30cmX30cm.
20 hrs +. Self-Portrait. Was going to paint an imp or a demon on my shoulder but afraid it’ll ruin the painting. Still learning how to glaze and scumble properly, I may have overdone the saturation in places with the glazing.
Irish classical guitarist Darragh O’Neill looking pensive. This is the first painting since my trip to Holland to study Eloy Morales’ technique. A lot learned from this painting and a lot more to learn. The grid lines are still visible even after many layers of paint.
And below, a video I made for Darragh a couple years ago, set in the Harbour Bar, Bray.
The BJJ black belt Kurt Osiander. I like his ‘move of the week’ video tutorials.
Edit: Haha, unbelievable-while looking for a move of the week video to embed in this post, the first video I select is the vid below. Kurt starts by saying this video is in response to a request by Jimbo in Ireland who wants see a Darce choke…..so thats why Jimbo is a Darce ninja.
BJJ black belt Darragh O’Conaill of East Coast Jiu Jitsu Academy. http://www.ecjja.com Experimented a little with this one, turned out ok.
