This is the third and final little rubber robot toy; this one is kind of a speed racer.  He was both hard and fun to paint.  He’s very small and yet full of so much detail, but the detail is so tiny, it’s hard to discern.  His little face is actually not very detailed and kind of strange-looking.  Each of these little guys is in fact a slightly different color; one is more bright green, one more army green, and this one is in-between bright and army green.

I aimed again for looseness with these last two paintings; it continues to be a struggle to overcome 20 years of painting habits, but I’m not unhappy with these.

New Painting: Akk-akk-akk-akk-akk!

I love this little painting!  I love the chattering teeth character;  sometimes I feel like this painting looks.  I’m happy with the looseness I managed in this painting, as well as being able to describe so many of the color-shapes with single brushstrokes.   More tomorrow!
