Pam in the Raw


Here are a few in progress shots of the Pam Grier paintings from this month's Lowbrow Candy Store show at Flatcolor. The two man show with Dave MacDowell will be up until the 27th of this month.

Tried to take a more straight forward approach with the Pam Grier likenesses. I usually sketch things out ahead of time before transferring a drawing to the canvas. I was messing around with the above Pam sketch after finding some good reference, and just started drawing right on the canvas. Felt pretty good about the likeness so I just kept going. You can see both of the finished pieces in this post.



 Anyway, those are most of the process shots I have that were decent enough to show. Will dig around and see if I have some more. In the meantime stay tuned for more updates on some local upcoming group shows for next month. One very cool group show takes place in a galaxy far far away......

*Just a side note about blogger that's frustrating. Maybe it's just me. If you want to see these pics in their original size, you can right click and open in a new tab. For whatever reason that option keeps disappearing in the new lightbox viewer. I won't complain too much about  it because this is all free, but the inconsistency is pretty annoying, among other things. Anywhoooo, enjoy!
