Here is an oil painting I did of Chad Ochocinco from a photo I found online. I have enjoyed the commercials he has done this last year, especially the one where he is playing the NFL game on Wii and he gets beaten by some other guy playing the game. This painting was also done with the Zorn palette as well. The Next painting I have in mind I will be moving away from the Zorn palette and probably be painting with 10 or so colors instead of the 4 used in Zorn. I am doing a few "warm up" paintings before I tackle a bigger personal piece I have been working on, just practicing painting more refined images that life painting doesn't allow for and concentrating on creating interesting brush work.
