Fireball tag! Pew! Pew-pew! Oil on canvas. The size is..um..I don’t know, how are you supposed to measure an oval? It’s roughly the size of my face. That’s my professional measurement. Leave me alone- I’m the artist I can do whatever I want.

Process:
Step 1: Have an adorable niece who is willing to pose for you
Step 2: Shenanigans
Step 3: Snap as many photos as you can in the single 2-minute window between shenanigans
Step 4: mapping out the painting and line work.
Step 5: ta-daa!

I usually paint in acrylic, but thought I’d play with some oils today. It had been a long time since I’ve used them. It was so satisfying! Thinking of making the switch. Just playing around and making this piece up as I go.
