For this painting, we find a comic strip and copy it exactly in the form of a painting (and I mean exactly). The point of this lesson is to learn how to mix colors better and to help you control your hand by painting lines in a very controlled manner. It was pretty tedious and most of the time I just wanted to move my brush across the whole canvas in one fluid motion, but I had to be really careful not to mess up the whole time. It was pretty frustrating at times.
So the comic I chose is completely irrelevant to me. I just searched "funny simple comic strip" on google images and this is what it gave me:
So here's my painting, it's 4x5 feet tall:
The purple sky was for some reason really hard for me to get just right. It just never turned out. I had to do 3 layers..trying to get it just right, but alas. Her shirt and his jacket were really hard too. I couldn't figure out what colors to mix to get them just right. I obviously need more yellow in his jacket.
I wish I had chosen something more relevant to me, maybe a cartoon I watched as a kid or comic strip I would read in the Sunday paper...like Tom and Jerry or something. But this painting actually works strangely well with my 1st painting (the abstract one), they work really well as a diptych.
