A very public piece.

art, Painting, Portrait

I was commissioned a while ago to do a painting on a pillar at a local pub called 60’s palaver. The pub has a 60’s theme and they wanted something that would fit the place, I had a few ideas immediately but the one I have a picture of was the best.

I am painting a pillar inside the restaurant and I am doing this while the bar is open. This means that the painting process can be seen by anyone who is there to enjoy a drink or a few. Every Thursday from now on I am gathering my equipment and heading of to do a session of painting, and every Thursday people can see more progress that will eventually lead to a finished piece that fits the 60’s themed really nicely.

Here’s the sketch I did on a smaller scale.

And here’s what I got done after 6 hours last Thursday.
