in progress

Here is piece I was working on last night. The guy I originally painted with an all green suit but I decided he looked to much like a leprechaun. So I made his pants brown and his short plaid. The couple are supposed to be sitting . I did not draw in the chairs but I hope they look like they are not doing some weird dance.

I spend a lot of time painting backgrounds , that will be covered up

My friend once told me . The best thing you can do in art is paint something really cool and then cover it up. I do spend a while painting a background and then painting over 80% of it. But I feel like it makes the finished product better. Sometimes I take photos of the under paintings (mostly I don't , but I try to document it more)

Here are some examples.

This is the underpainting (see link for finished product)  http://www.madspiral.com/injt1s093v1hhk7zm7hm54scd7qp5x
