This started out with being inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, but soon the simplicity went out of the window. What was supposed to be a series is now becoming the search for a style that brings together my cartoony style and love of old style oil paintings. Won’t be doing an oil version of this one though, first establish a solid style for this series.
Really enjoyed doing this, it’s big too, could be printed poster size. Funny how I’m never satisfied, the Wacom tablet lets me paint large canvasses in a small apartment, without smells, drying time etc. You’d think I’m happy but it made me long for my days in Thailand with my open air studio, a trolly full of oil paint and a large canvas in the easel. Still a Wacom is the next best thing, happy to be painting again.
It started out as a test for limited palettes but then I decided to go weird and tell stories without a visual logic. And out was the idea of just testing limited palettes. Hope you like this because I’m loving doing this style.
