Bro Kin needs a new home. Time for a canvas-endectomy......
.....pull several dozen staples.......
.....and attach to a larger canvas.......
Bro Kin has some really nice textures that I want to maintain in its new incarnation.
I also had this relief element left over from an earlier version of Los Reyes that I removed but kept around in the studio because it had too much potential to just discard.
I can't say that I am a huge fan of the line work on this two-headed figure. I will likely paint over it.
I combed through my sketchbooks and found some drawings I thought could work as a base layer.
Time to add color.
You can see RE/DE in the background. I try to keep other pieces around me while I am working because when I see what is going on in those pieces, I frequently gain insight(s) into what I need to do on the piece on which I'm actually working.
Last few touches on the first color layer.
Time for the color wash to separate the layers of imagery.....
I have to admit, I'm really happy with how this haze layer turned out. Believe it or not, I kinda want to paint a bunch more parking lot on this piece. We'll see.
A sketch that may find its way into the second layer......?
That's it for Bro Kin for now. Next time we take a look at what is going on with Voyage of Discovery.
