The Entourage (No, I Did Not Forget About It)


Here’s an update on “The Entourage.”  I am posting the black and white layer that I discussed in this post, so you can see where I was.  I’ve also included the latest pictures of the painting:  a few modifications in the black and white layer that you haven’t yet seen, and the addition of color.

The color is always a little weird at first, but I try to get a fairly accurate version of all the colors down right away, so I can build the colors off of one another.  Many times, I’ll change one color, and have to change all of the colors because of how they look in relation to the new color.  This means I’ll end up doing as many layers as I need to to get it right.

    I love to see the development of your pictures.’
    I was wondering if in the way you paint with layers and the type of paint you use if in the distant future someone began to strip it little by little would they be able to discern the different layers?
    sort of like the layers in the Mona Lisa….

    It’s possible, I suppose. It would be cool to see!
