Its still wet… Geisha of the Sea

This photo isn’t the best because the oil is reflecting off of the flash. I’ll take a better photo when the paint dries.

I painted the flowers and touched up her hair a bit. This piece is almost finished. I watched a surfing movie to get a feel for the wave and changed a few things on it. I’ll post the entire painting in the next day or two. The movie was call the billabong something… opps can’t remember I want to say Dynasty but thats not it.

My models for the next series


In this photo I have my two models next to each other and as you can see it was very hot. No air conditioning and I had to shoot some photos pretty fast before both of them passed out!
I’m gathering reference photos for my new series “Geisha” but I may also include Kabuki as well, I think it will be a bit edgy but I won’t know till I get started. I usually allow the paintings to dictate what will happen in each painting. I’m thinking bold colors, big shapes and clean lines.100_1983
