Halloween art – which witch is witch?

Halloween art - Allie casts the wrong spell

I love Halloween. So of course, I’ll do some Halloween art.

Allie and I were laughing so hard that I almost couldn’t draw this first one. I start with a live sketch. Then I take the sketch and draw onto watercolor paper. Then I ink it. Last comes the paint.

The first of my three Halloween art watercolors

I thought the first one was cute. So for the second one, I wanted a little bit of teeth.

Teeth are tricky. If you don’t do them right, they look like Chiclets.

I had to draw dozens of mouths on scratch paper before I did this second one. It ended up pretty good and I’m proud of it.

So I’m 7 months in

I’ve been working with Allie on my drawing skills since February and painting since April. Definitely not bad. I initially had the goal of going pro in 2022. I think I’m going to shatter that.

It’s all persistence. Persistence applies to anything. As I’ve said many, many times before – I don’t have natural artistic talent. Art is really a craft. If you want to get good at it, you have to hone your craft. Constantly.

The thing is, so many of today’s artists “have to be inspired” to do anything. I don’t need any fucking inspiration. I just draw and paint.

Of course it helps to have two beautiful female friends who have no problem walking nude around me. But still, I don’t see why artists have to be inspired. Their mindset is definitely off.

Allie casts the wrong spell

Yesterday, I told Allie that she’s getting better and better as a model. She’s more expressive than ever. I love this one the best of the three. It’s probably one of the best watercolor paintings I’ve done to date.

As much as I liked the hat, it’s cliché. So the third one, no hat. Besides, Allie has the most beautiful hair. It’s so “flowing.”

Anyways, enjoy! I hope you like these. I’m getting pretty close to the point where I’m going to start selling prints.
