Better Late Than Never

I went to the show last night, and I was duly impressed. It was one of the better high school plays I've seen. The actual title of the show was
The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of "A Christmas Carol" by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr.
and it was hilarious! We laughed a lot, which is always good. Really brought me into the spirit of Christmas happiness.

Here are the pictures:

The blank slate... well, with the place we tested the airbrush. It's got the sketch drawn on it, but you can't see it here.

Maybe here you can see a bit of the sketch

The sky brushed in... and it looks like shit.

The trees add a lot and make the sky look less shitty... it recedes. So then I forgot to bring my camera for the next 3 days...

And this is the final, finished project

This is the corner I kept showing you before. There was a lot more going on in it than you could see from the earlier pictures.

Tomorrow- how painting things to be seen from a distance is different than my regular painting.

It looks good, even the sky. Skies are weird things, even Monet had trouble with clouds. =)

The finished project looks great. It's amazing that you only learned the airbrush a few days before! New mediums don't come that easy to all of us!

That looks great. The picture that has dark around it makes it look like a projected image. Easy for the audience to suspend belief and go into the world on stage.

Mighty impressive! People who can paint always blow my mind as I have no aptitude for it at all (I feel the same way about people who can sing - can you sing? See, all you'd need to do is sing and paint at the same time, and you'd make my head spin.) I love it - a brilliant contribution to the holidays!
