Welcome to my blog! In this post I will be talking about my latest ArtRage painting.

I took the reference photo for this painting just right before Breakfast on Christmas morning. My aim was to capture the feelings of spending time with family over the holidays. It was vacation and we all had time to just relax and watch movies all day. You could say this painting is part still life and part pop art. I chose ArtRage because I haven’t made a digital oil painting in a few months. This time I minimized the amount of layers I used so the paint would mix more naturally. No palette knife for this one because I didn’t think it needed it. The textures give the painting personality.
