Pedro is Done



My painting of actor Pedro Infante, which I have titled "Blue Diablo," is now finished. Let's see if I can get back to that West Baden Painting over my 3-day weekend while i'm still feeling creative!

Making Progress



If I could only use one color for my paintings, it would be Phthalocyanine Blue. Now that I have begun putting in details and blending, I am reminded of why I like it so much. Ultra dark by itself, it creates the most vibrant shades as you continue to add white, and blends so well.

The man in the painting is actor Pedro Infante, based on the poster art for the film "Cartas Marcadas."

Blue Diablo



It's always nice when a client likes the painting I have done; it's even better when they ask for another. Such was the case with Doña Diabla. Here you can see the companion piece (which I have titled Blue Diablo) begin to come to life. I am using my very favorite color for this one: Phthalocyanine Blue. That's a mouthful. Although it typically takes a few coats for the solid areas, it is one of the best colors for blending, creating the most beautiful shades of blue in the process.
