Welcome back everyone!
You're just in time for Part 3 on this Acrylic canvas tribute project for 'the Good The Bad and the Ugly'! This one is not a commission by the way; it's a personal project that I've been wanting to do for a while, so I'm now taking a few weeks to work on with you.
This week's segment is all about lettering, sunsets and cowboy hats. Enjoy!
So here is where we are on this piece to date, as of tonight:
Stay tuned next week for face tones and...sand. Yes, lots of sand. And Tombstones. Lots of Tombstones. And Tumbleweeds. We need to have Tumbleweeds! I mean, Westerns NEED tumbleweeds, by Golly by Gum.
Have a great week everyone. 👍
For this week, I got into an older project I'd started a few months ago, which had been interrupted by other commissions and life issues - It is a thrill to revisit 'The Good The Bad And The Ugly' here now!!
I hope you enjoy the process; below is a short gallery of progress pics and source references for this painting, followed by Part 2 of the Painting Video Log!
And here is Part two of the Video Series, this time laying in beginning background colors, grey tones and values:
Thanks for checking out the work, and see you next week!

We have arrived at Part 3, and the final Video Log Chapter for how I worked out 'A Dog Named Maybe', a recent Pet Commission I did for a local pet store here in town. Thanks for dropping in!
For me, at this stage (and this goes for any painting I do), stuff really starts to get fun.
All the values have been laid in, and it's now about layering in colors and making everything pop all around the painting. Everyone sees the colors first when they look at a painting, but the only reason the colors really stand out is because of all the layers underneath.
Check out the whole story below!
And here below are the pics taken after each session on this project:
And this is the finished piece, one more time:
Thanks for checking out this video Blog, and take care everyone!
-Have a great day.
Hey guys, welcome back! -You're just in time for part 2 or 3 on this one 👍
Last week, we set up the sketch-work and the base background elements for Maybe, and this week, we are continuing with Maybe's values in black, white and grey tones. Check out the new video below, with the end-of-each-session pics:
And here for your amusement and edification is the finished piece once more; the final video on this project next week will show how we add all the color layers to finish the painting:
Thanks for stopping in, and have a great day!

Hey guys, New project this week!
This one a digital piece of Rey from Star Wars (WOOOOOHOOOOO STAR WARS IX!!!)
So, I'm excited anyway. Can't even wait for Episode IX!
(Happy to discuss the finer points of ANY ridiculously trivial Star Wars piece of minutia with absolutely anyone, for any reason at nearly any time, btw . Want to go really hard-core on any books, comics or cartoons? I'm down too👍)
So here is part one, stay tuned for part 2 next week, same Bat-Time, Same Bat -Channel.
And here below are a few pics of the project, with a look ahead on where the videos will be going :
As ever, thanks for checking out my work, and see you next week!
