In the 10 months since my last post, I truly have been painting! I’ve completed a few private commissions, started another oil painting for my own personal pleasure, and started work on a mural. Today’s post is a fun little piece done for Waubonsie Valley High School’s fall play. Title is “Get Bill Shakespeare OFF the Stage!” The art director wanted something in caricature style. So, I pulled out my ink, sat down with watercolors, and played! The ink work (appropriately for Shakespeare) was all done with quill pen, enabling me to capture the fine-line details needed in lettering and faces. Once the painting was completed, I scanned it and did all poster lettering in Adobe Illustrator.
