30 Paintings in 30 Days – Day 8
Today is a big day. I’m making the drive from the Bay Area into Hollywood to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see a live version of The Muppet Show! It’s very exciting and something I never would have thought possible. That’s why I did this painting today. It is a 5″x7″ ink and oil painting on a smooth artist panel.

Decided to go back to doing a portrait today. This one fought me quite bit and probably took longer than I would like. I started the drawing last night and hoped to get some of the underpainting done but that did not happen. But it’s finally finished. Time to plan the next one.
Ink, watercolor and oil paint on illustration board.

What I was worried about happening with day 1 came true. My Moleskin painting project hit a snag when it comes to drying times. So, it looks like I will have to pepper those in throughout the month along with other paintings.
That brings us to today. I love the 1980’s and a lot of the things that I draw and paint have a tie to that time period. Growing up in the 80’s has exposed me to many things that have stuck with me and I still enjoy today. One of those things are toys and this painting is based on one of those toy lines, The Madballs. Screamin’ Meemie is the name of this character. He is the second character from the toy line that I have recently painted.
I have plans to do a series of art and posts detailing the history of several 1980’s toy lines and I will go into the Madballs toys and histories then. This will begin in January and I plan to run this for all of 2018.
This piece started as a ink drawing on a gessoed panel. The under painting was in watercolor paint and then glazed with oil paint.
This portrait is of Vincent Price from his roll in The Fall of the House of Usher. The film was based on an Edger Allen Poe story and directed by Roger Corman. The film was released in 1960 and was one of many Poe stories that Price and Corman collaborated on. It was also when Corman was actually making some fine cinema and not just doing cheap horror and sci-fi movies.
I branched out and used some blue paint along with the limited palette of my latest paintings but I did go back to painting in oils. But, I will probably be leaving the oil paints behind for the next painting.
