Finished this a while ago.
It took 9 painting sessions with acrylic paints to get this done, and the feeling on the Sunday when I but my signature on it was great.
Most importantly the owner of this piece was very pleased with the outcome.
“All you need is love” painted on a 147cm x 297cm concrete pillar with acrylics.
After 2 sessions with the pillar at the local pub I have this much done.
it has been fun painting while people around are having a laugh and enjoying a couple beverages. I myself have been drinking soda, not because I can’t have a few while I am painting but because I have to get up on a ladder to paint and I really want to keep my balance at it’s best.
That said I did enjoy a couple after I finished up last time.
If you are planning a trip to Joensuu Finland, live here or just happen to stop by check out the place 60’s Palaver.
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.
I had a different idea for this canvas originally, but to go wiht the gun I decided to make a grenade.
Splash! Kaboom! acrylics on linen, 174 x 187 cm
Let the pictures do the talking.
