…get to work.
Here’s a work in progress by Stephen Davis.
I got this on my phone, so, small, and the image (taken from one of many great photographs he has taken) was preceded by Steve, who had picked up some new acrylics the day before, describing his latest painting as, “Vibrant.”
“Send it to me.”
On my phone, it was that: Vibrant.
Because Steve and I are quite competitive (that is, 8.5 out of 10), I asked if he’s all right if I attempt a drawing of the same scene.
“Bring it on!”
Wait for it. Wait for it. Oh, yeah; we’re a little sick of the waiting- bring on some waves!
ARTSY Note: If you look too closely at many artist’s work, at classics; if you look at the brush strokes, try to work out how the colors are blended, or not; if you break down the technical aspects, the layout and the perspective; you’re looking too closely. Trish and I have one of Steve’s originals, an acrylic image of one of my favorite northwest surf locations, hanging across the room from our bed. Perfect. Here are a couple more:
