I’m currently working on 3 sports paintings of the Chicago Bears star Running Back HOFer, Walter “Sweetness” Payton.
NOTE: each image is just a small slice of the full painting. I’m a big tease.
All of the football paintings are from the same photograph, Walter diving for a TD, but each slightly different than the other.
I don’t typically do action shots, (portraits) but I may be onto something with this new experiment.
By the way, experimenting is tough on an artist, as the results usually suck and subsequent thoughts of “you suck, you’re no good and you should stick to your day job you stupid loser.” enter the artist’s head (while beating himself or herself with a large wooden spoon).
Without further adieu, a Walter Payton preview – full images coming soon.
