Touch the Sky

Just finished a new Digital Painting called "Touch the Sky". Painting in photoshop with a lot of custom brushes.
"Touch the Sky"
Breaking the plane to see heaven,
Pushing through obstacles to see beyond,
if yet for a moment to see a glimpse of what could be.
Reaching beyond the normal flow of the day to touch life.

art love,

Tuna Dreams painting

This is one of my latest paintings in progress. Each stage has it's own fun and life cycle. The drawing started as a fun idea as I watched my cats do what they love to do most which is sleep. The idea of learning how to rest. After I finished the pencil drawing then I created value thumbnails and color studies in preparation for the final painting. Next I did a sepia underpainting over the painting to establish base lighting or breakdown of light and shadow. This last image is the painting in progress in oils.
I'll post more stages as I work.
