oil painting of Pig No.1

I couldn’t resist this photo when I saw it. I mean… what a face! There’s something really joyful about this pig (although, it could just be shouting for more food…)

The initial block-in and rough follow up was loose, raw and exciting. So I put it aside to debate whether to go any further. In the end, I decided to give it more finish. And I think it turned out well. But I still wonder if I should have just left it be.

Let me know what you think… (see the thumbnail steps below for the stages)

Pig No.1 is from a photo by Juan Carlos Garavito on FreeImages.com (see below)

The second of my “Rotting Fish” series, and the studio smells great…

Honestly, this painting came together very naturally for me. In some ways, I feel like it’s one of the best things I’ve done lately.

I want to look for more images...
