About an Octopus and a coconut

About an Octopus and a coconut

Contest just for the fun

Some time ago I was invited by Gianpaolo di Silvestro from Scientific Models to join a fun painting challenge with four other painters.

Gianpaolo had released an octopus figure and thought it would be a nice idea to bring some friends together online during this Covid period in an informal and just-for-fun contest. While the contest hasn’t finished yet, I have finished my version of the octopus.

It’s really been a fun ride with some great online laughs with the others who joined this challenge: Robert del Cima, Paolo di Poce, Lorenzo Evangelista and Antonio Pirri.

And mind you,  it’s not all just for fun, the winners gets a coconut. Who can resist an award like that?  🙂

And more images of my finished fun-project “Octopussy” can, of course, be found in my gallery

New figure added: the Mad Hatter

And here he is.. the Mad Hatter! 

I am happy to say that I have finished this wonderful figure from Creepy Tables. It was a very long trip, but a fun one, I enjoyed it and learned a lot. It’s a large piece, perhaps the largest I have painted so far, and it required a different approach to painting at times, compared to other projects.

I have combined acrylics and oils, something that works fine for me. 

More images of this project, and many other projects, can be found, as always, in my gallery.
