My latest exploration in casein painting this time of a river otter floating in water. River otters as far as I know don't hold their food while floating, but I wanted him to be holding one anyway. Can read more about it on my blog. #MastoArt #CreativeToots
Another painting in casein on Arches watercolor paper this time of some king penguins. I got the idea to paint this after watching a wildlife documentary which had literally thousands of them grouped together on this small island near Antarctica. I liked the colors and abstract shapes the penguins made when unfocused, so I wanted to see if I could do that in paint.
Last October I was contacted by Frank Foster to illustrate his newest album "The Way it Was" which was released in January. Been waiting to update my website so now can post here. Can read more about it here:
Giving Krita a try again (last time I used it was before hardware acceleration). Spent an inordinate amount of time playing around with brush settings and made a couple I like then painted a mason jar to test things out. Really like it. Might write my thoughts on the app on my blog. #mastoArt #creativeToots #foss #krita #art
Worked a bit more on my sketch tonight, focusing on adding clothing to a figure. Don’t quite have it right yet. Still need to work on compression wrinkles from the arms and hands resting on the fabric, but getting there... #sketch #sketching #doodle #doodlesketch #digitalart #digital #illustration #art #figure #clothing #wrinkles #mastoArt #creativeToots
First art post in a long while as I haven’t worked on anything I can show. This is a sketch of a painting I’m starting. Very early in the process. Still trying to get composition working. Changing things up on what I’ve done lately. While this will be painted in a realistic style as usual, certain parts of it will be a bit more caricatured. #mastoArt #creativeToots #sketch #digitalArt
