    I felt like messing with some paint tonight. Didn't know what to paint but just wanted to be free with it. So, I started out with a quick stencil and a light dusting of white. I put the stencil away and won't be using it anymore. I then just started sketching with my Micron and some white paint. The first layer of the head is done and I got some cool texturing done. I have a vision in my head and will continue tomorrow with more of the scene which will be totally of my own creation. Sometimes starting with a stencil will lead to an idea and in this case I've got one.

    You know, that is exactly my problem too. I just get to painting and forget to stop and take pictures. I probably should have taken one in the beginning before I started the freehand work just to show the newbies how to use stencils and make the work their own.

    Its a boogie woogie man! Gotta draw up the rest of it. I'll just do it on the tag with stabilo pencil and then go from there. Hey Fred @Airbrush Dreams , I've got about a 100 of them tags that have been sitting and collecting dust just waiting for me to have fun with them. Halloween is coming and I wanted to do something new for my decorations.

    I pushed myself into the art studio tonight. I drew out my thoughts in Stabilo pencil directly on the tag and then really really roughly sketched the pattern with reduced white and then white washed over most of it. Got to tell you, my back was hurting and I couldn't get comfortable while painting. Since I was uncomfortable, I didn't spend too much time with the textures and embellishing on tonight's work. This is at the sketch stage.

    Hopefully your back won't give you any trouble next session and you can work your magic on the pic. Nicely done so far.

    You're obviously like me, although perfectly capable of learning, simply refuse to, nothing wrong with that, got to show them who's boss, right? :)
