During the weekend of the Baby Tattooville event in Riverside, California, all thirty guest artists contributed to the art jam.
The 4x8 foot acrylic painting was a surrealistic compilation of floating pink clouds, boys with ray guns, cow ladies, and green-haired girls. What could I possibly add to such a potpourri?
It seemed to require a happy Buddha, floating serenely in the midst of all the wackiness. I worked next to Travis Louie, who was putting the final touches on a one-eyed potato man.
The golden orb picks up on the cool light from the background and a warm glow from below. I love painting gold objects. The trick is to try not to make them too yellow. I saved the brightest yellows for the areas just around the highlights. As the planes turned away, they get quite dull and dark in color.
