Nov Show LeBasse Projects

Wrapping up one piece and on to the next one. Feels great to have one down. But I think I'm going to do a little more jumping around from piece to piece to try and keep work fresh...not always an easy task.

Choose a painting

Hi All,

I'm considering putting out a new limited edition print. But I first want to try and get some feedback on which image you would like to see printed. So here I've listed some recent and older works. And I've numbered them to make things easier, just comment with a number.

Thanks for your time and help

Moving forward

Here's what I've been painting on for the last several days. I always want to skip out on the color comp but it really does help to move things faster if I know exactly how dark or saturated an area of the painting is going to be. It also allows you to preview and adjust the juxtaposition of colors and get all the mistakes out of the way without compromising your final panting. Plus the digital comp moves fairly quickly and definitely saves time in the long run. Esp. since a friend of mine gave me his old wacom tablet. It's a nice improvement from the mouse:)

Some people feel that there's no room for spontaneity when you use photo ref or have all your color/value comps. However, I always seem to have plenty of opportunities for spontaneous goodness:) My name is Eric....and I use color comps.
