Lines of Power - 20" X 24" oil on canvas


This is my 2nd attempt at oils with inspiration drawn from Larry Elmore, Matt Stawicki, Patrick Jones, and Annie Stegg. I worked on it small sessions, so there are about 5-6 layers of paint in the busiest areas.

The story behind it will be written out as part of the NaNoWriMo 2014 Challenge where you write a novel (50k words!) in 1 month (30 days!). I'm insane for attempting it, but I need that kind of motivation to get the things out of my head and finally onto paper (or computer screen).

Digital sketch for an upcoming oil painting. I still prefer manual drawing, but I sure do like having an "undo" button.
