2009-07-23 "Repairshop"
Recent painting using a similar approach as "Treason". I start by imagining a scene in my head and memorize the main ingredients. Then, I try to materialize it with a quick gestural black and white concept done in Painter. Then, I start adding color slowly and all the inherent detail, trying not to fade the initial brushstrokes. This is mostly done in Photoshop but sometimes I come back to Painter to reintroduce that "traditional" feel. When the color changes drastically in my process, it usually means I "hit" the painting with a Color Balance filter. I try to take my time finalizing these paintings to carefully evaluate them. I posted some steps below to better explain my process.
I hope you like it.





2009-07-18 "Treason"
I did this piece over the last couple of weeks, taking my time and exploring new ways of approaching a painting. I'm always learning new things and constantly finding out how little I know.

Another title for the image was "Angels of Treason".

WOW a very impressive pictures ... great !!!!

I don't respond for your first post 'angels of treason' 'coz of thema but you drawing style is very good
For the second 'repairshop', i love your retro futurist approach and the management of colors

it's very interesting to see your workflow step by step and the process to memorize only important ingredients !!!
