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.
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 started this a while ago and yesterday I had the time to finally get it finished.
Like the ones done earlier I only used spray paints and markers on this too. The piece is 100cm x 125cm and the next thing, so I can call it done is to frame it and get it to it’s new owner.
I did listen to Nirvana a lot when I was a young boy. I still do sometimes, and when I was busy with my markers on this one, I of course listened to some Nirvana.
And here is the piece still on my easel. The guns are airsoft guns for a sculpture I am working on.
Kurt Cobain, 100cm x 125cm, spraypaint and markers on paper
Rocking it! On tour.
These paintings have been touring around the town for a while now. I found a place for them for the rest of the year, partially because I have so much other stuff to do and to focus on that I don’t want to be moving them around all the time.
This is the space they are displayed at right now.
I also made a little poster to tour with the paintings.
For a sneak peak of what I am spending my time with now I’ll post this.
I will try to get more in to this piece and the process behind it when I have the time.
Now I am of to work.
