Here is a figure painting using the duo-tone method...limiting the palette basically to later possibly introduce color. (If you are going to develop it further.) I had actually done this while teaching and don't think the picture does it justice....but still waiting to get a nice camera and download Photoshop again into the computer I am currently using. I may actually have a job and need to try balancing that ever annoying concept of work and painting. Of course I would just paint if the money just started pouring in but money still isn't free....waiting for that day.

So I did post the other day again...but where did it go? Sometimes technology doesn't do just what you want it to or is it operator error. I am trying to keep up with this blog and do daily posts. Of course life always gets in the way. Discipline is key for any artist followed with consistency and a lot of tenacity. We, who are artists, must persevere even among the darkest of times. And with my art I decided I would try everything I possibly could before throwing in the towel. Like always, it is that balance of things to do that I must continue.

Intricate and interesting. I love the work of Kris Kuksi, to date one of my favorite sculpturers. Though I always want to see them larger they are amazing. I am including some great links I found which helps explain his process a little better. His process is called kitbashing or model bashing something that the film industry used to create models.
