This olympics themed "Fuck the Eighties" painting was a real hit at the show and I thought I'd post some work in progress shots of the evolution of the painting. This is how I like to paint these days always trying to tackle the whole piece at once and arrive at detail all over. So the three photos taken at different stages show a little of that idea. It was at the points of these photographs taken that I stopped and let the whole thing dry for a bit and then I would jump on it with wet paint and work here and there all over it until it's all brought up to the desired level of overall detail. It's a tricky and disaster-prone way to go but it's so FUN!
