    This photograph reveals so much of the artistic process. If prelimanaries and studies laydown the logic and structure of the piece, the paint mixing pallette table is the prowness, struggle in achieving and expression of the piece. In the digital vs traditional post, you said

    “Mixing colors is one of the most challenging part of painting. There is millions and gazilions of colors in the spectrum that human eyes can perceive. To be able to get the “right color” can be difficult for any masters. Being forced to learn how to mix colors in traditional medium is one of the best ways to learn about color and value relationship.”

    For a non-artist, the photograph really explains meaning of the above statement. . Thanks for sharing this photo. Amazing


    PS. The painting has a WOW factor.

    I am so inspired by the freedom in your work, the colors are fantastic. I really am loving this new painting/project and if I had to guess it’s some kind of short film based on kids that rebuild(or cope really) with the dying earth?? 🙂

    Can’t wait to see more!

    Congrats on the project. It looks too be a great success and for such a great cause.

    What a fantastic thing to do! I’ve just found out about the Totoro project through DRAWN and have since seen that no more artwork can be donated. I can’t tell you how much I love Totoro and how badly I’d love to do a piece for this cause, how about letting us late comers do a piece for next year? I imagine there may still be a need down the road? I’m the illustrator for a company called House Industries, a great little illustration firm / type foundry in Delaware, if you think the work on my blog is up to the standards needed, I’d be all over it to help that beautiful forest. Thanks my friend! -Chris.
