Today threw me a bit of a curve ball. I had a few paintings that I had ready to go in for today and this was not one of them. The pencil work for this was finished yesterday and for some reason while I was at work I kept thinking about finishing it when I got home. And that’s what happened. But, because of the the quick turnaround I couldn’t use oil paint because I wouldn’t be able to scan it with the wet paint. So, I decided to use more ink washes which gives it a bit of a watercolor feel and then gouache to fill in the blacks with a nice solid pass.
I love the movie, Nightmare Before Christmas and have done and sold several pieces of art based on the film in the past. In fact I’m working on a series of big paintings from the movie that I hope to get back to after this month.
This painting is available for sale for $50.00
