    Sketchbook 2.0 Speedpainting I guess

    5.18.09 - Well, some of this first stuff is getting pretty outdated...but I guess that is the whole point of a sketchbook. It is funny to look back and see how often I vow to do something and then don't. Most of this sketchbook has been spent searching for a way of working that is fast, expressive and free while remaining clear. Clarity has been an issue for me as you can see in many of these images. One thing to be aware of is that when I give information on how I paint, that information is only true of work that I was doing at that time. This is especially true of the tutorial that I posted a while ago. A lot of the information is still relevant but many things have changed since then.

    10.19.08 - I put together a process tutorial here: My speedpainting process for those interested in learning how I create these images.

    woah, i was never sure how to approach speed painting, i've thought about it, but looking at this kinda gives me a few ideas. But for speed painting this is very good stuff, print worthy.

    so i geuss it must be just a limited pallete and usually you start by cuickly putting in the values to shape the forms within the composition?

    I used to start in black and white and just establish value relationships, but now I just go for color right away. I just throw everything in there and then come back and wash it back down with a big brush. Once the color scheme is found it gets a lot easier to work with.

    There are a ton of cool things going on in here,
    The brush strokes are great, but the use of color is just beyond beautiful man. Very nice shapes and patterns, almost abstract in a few but still enough information to communicate the idea of what's taking place.

    definately some VIVID work you got here thus far! Im loving the technique.... I suppose though, perhaps just a little more attention to the heirachy of shapes (foreground, middle,back, etc), like you mentioned with the contrast pushes, would clean up the images a bit... Because some of the reads' take a bit of time to see what the story telling is. Nonetheless, sweet SB!

    You're making sculpture out of color! Splendid!
    Whether the contrasts are too strong depends only on the mood,
    I guess, because I wouldn't change anything to what you posted,
    unless maybe (not sure) when you plan to push the detail further.

    Interesting stuff you've been doing with brushes there. I'd love to see a tutorial on the way you use them.
