Patrick: Playing the Game

After a wonderful heartfelt talk on the phone with my brother I spent some short time painting a arcade game painting on this painting.

I love the fact that I’m trying to reproduce paintings with a painting. I’m not just trying to copy the strokes and make them look like the original but I’m also trying to infuse a bit of my own authenticity in them.

What went well?

I was able to adjust the time I had for painting today and finish a good portion.

What didn’t go so well?

I should spend a bit more time on taking the photos. This one had some glare right were I was painting today.

What did I learn?

Infusing black with all kinds of colors and keeping it a touch away from it’s darkest value really helps to infuse it with some interest.
