Dead CaptainPosted: October 30, 2019
Recently completed painting for an upcoming project to be published by Goodman Games next year. 11×14 acrylic on panel. The dead astronaut is a subject I seem to be asked to return to again and again — years ago I did a similar drawing in BW ink. These days I’m trying to up my acrylic skills and I seem to end up attempting every painting 2 or 3 times — the first and second versions are usually abandoned halfway through when it becomes clear to me that I am unhappy with what I have done so far and need to make changes. Sometimes the problems are technical (i.e.: a problem with the way the paint is applying to the surface) and other times it is aesthetic. Sometimes starting over is easier than fixing what was flawed from the start.
