When I’m not tattooing I like to paint and draw. Here is the rough drawing of vultures eating an elephant done on 18 by 24 inch masonite. The Idea came from a love of nature, life and death all grouped into one.
This is the second phase of the painting where the basic colors are put down to start defining the objects. I like using acrylic paint because it allows me to work quick.
Here is the finished piece. I add the brightest colors as the last phase of the painting. I’ve always been a fan of impressionism over hyper realism because it captures a mood and feel of a piece, and leaves the process open to the viewer.
