tree of life revisited

a sgraffito version of my original painting.



you can see the original here: tree of life

the highest form of flattery

...is imitation, right?
so i decided to start copying some of my favorite artists. it can't hurt to learn new techniques, and i've really wanted to loosen up lately. so i decided to do a few studies of royo's ingravidos work. the first study i did was on a clayboard. i'd never used one before, but i really enjoyed the process. it's time consuming, but fun.



the second study i'm doing is in oil. it's a work in progress, but i'm really diggin' it, man.
