I just finished framing this new pastel painting for the upcoming Blood and Oil group show at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles. The theme is man vs. machine, and my inspiration comes from a great book I recently read called The Clockwork Three by Matthew Kirby.
Here are a few process pictures of the thumbnail and line art. Finished artwork is 8x10, pastel pencils on MiTientes Touch paper.
Yes, I did value & color studies in Photoshop before arriving at the final version.
