Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing. ~Warren Spahn
Over the weekend, I took a Nelson Cruz piece and took it a little larger, and put it on a stretched canvas. I think it turned out well.
Here is a sneak peek at the process.
Step 1, draw out the rough image and cut. Cut, cut, and cut somemore. You can see where I messed it up and had to repair it with tape. Once you’ve spent as much time on drawing it out and the cutting, making a mistake makes you really want to fix it rather than start over.
Step 2, getting paint on the canvas, for this one just a light white base laid down to help the dark blue pop off the canvas a touch.
Step 3, was adding a bit of blue and letting it dry.
Then another one was done. Each of these is 16″x20″ on stretched canvas.
Oh yeah, the Rangers are in the World Series too.
