Painting at high speeds

When I got home from Okinawa I was full of ideas for painting ,Satorus paintings had me thinking I had to get my game on and improve my technique
I set about doing one painting a day., paintings are essentially boring and lack the free spirit of sketching but it has a direct reflection on your work ,you generally find if someone’s paintings are tidy their tattoos will be also,it’s hard to set aside a life time of drawing freely and adopt a set procedure to make a tight painting, this is where tattooing in turn influences the painting procedure in draughtsmanship .

Here’s an example of foo dog painting by Satoru and an unfinished tattoo of a foo dog head the approach is worked out in the drawings and the tattoos are mega clean ,


Here’s a slice of 3 of the 12 paintings I made , they will be available as paired up prints 2to an A3sheet


Some didn’t make completion ,!

All work and no play , makes jack a dull boy!
