La Dolorosa





Hey gang...sorry I've been quiet the past couple of weeks. I had a really good excuse though! Finishing this painting! It's been a looooong time since I've painted something in my "old school" style, but I really loved how it turned out. I used to say to myself, "When things get rough in life, that's when my best paintings would come out." Well here's the fruit of one those times! I also included the sketch I worked off of as well as the detail of the face (which took FOREVER to do. I think about at least 10-12 hours of work alone, including screw ups). The photo doesn't really do it justice because it totally obliterated a lot of the subtle, transparent overlays. Sooo...if you want to see it in person, you can check it out at the following exhibit: Tigers & Jaguars: LA's Asian-Latino Art Phenomenon .
