Hoodie girl


I did this one on a small (4x6 inches) piece of masonite for a change of pace. It's always fun to paint on different surfaces. I noticed right away that I had gotten used to the feel of working on paper in my sketchbook because this surface didn't "give" at all to the pressure of my brush, but hey, at least I didn't have to worry about the paper buckling!

Beautiful piece Mike. I think one of your best. Tight but still has that intial sketch feel that almost breathes.

I agree with dogboy443...this is the best yet. It looks like one of those old time advertisements they used to do back in the 1950's. Mike, have you tried using canvas board yet?

I absolutely love this piece. Is it for sale?

D'OH! Dogboy443 beat me to it. I was gonna ask if it were for sale.
This piece (as well as the others) have inspired me. I'm gonna try some sketchpaints of my own as soon as I'm done with a painting I'm doing for my nephew.

I've painted on all kinds of surfaces over the years, so yeah I've done some stuff on canvas board. In fact, I just picked up a pad of "acrylic" paper which is a slick bristol board type paper with a canvas pattern embossed into it...keep meaning to try it.
thanks for the interest in buying guys, but I've avoided that up till now. I suppose I should put it on my "to try" list.

Can I borrow it?

Nice! one of your best!

Thanks for the comments gang ;) I made a real effort not to out line things too much with this one. Since I do a lot of line art type work I have to really concentrate not to put hard edges around noses and mouths etc... and just let the color and values define the forms.

Can I borrow it? It will disappear into the Talbot Sanctum and never be seen again.

looks like the virgin mary to me! maybe her in a modern setting?

I know what you mean, it does have that serene quality that a lot of paintings of the Madonna have.
