Pointillism, Portraits, And Gene Wilder
Hello again, Folks! I’m back with a new series of paintings that I’m overwhelmingly excited about! (AHHHAHHHHHHAHHHHH I CAN’T CONTAIN MY JOY!!!!!!!!!!!) The Wilder Doctor, The Wilder Wonka, The Wilder Jim, and their merging in The Wilder Trifecta are my latest darlings in what I hope will be a long series of portraits. Though it was incredibly fun to paint Gene Wilder three times in a row, it was even more fun to experiment with a style that is very pointillism-inspired. As a kid I used to attempt to create my own pointillism masterpieces using crayola markers instead of paint. The result wasn’t a masterpiece, but the appreciation was definitely there.
This series has also spawned a desire to start creating postmortems about some of my larger projects and showing a few work-in-progress shots to demonstrate just how different my initial plan always is compared to the final result. Just making a gif of it wouldn’t do it justice (although a WIP gif is definitely going to happen). The postmortems will most likely be a new site feature on the blog I don’t yet have on the site that I currently love.
Until then, I hope you guys enjoy this trifecta until the next one appears!
