The Derelict by steve-burg The Derelict by steve-burg
This is one of the last acrylic paintings I ever did. The original size is about 15" x 20" (40cm x 54 cm)

As difficult as it is to recall from where we are today, at one time the method used to paint this image was really the only means available for doing concept art and illustration.

If I can locate the files, I will try to post some other traditional media artwork on occasion.

Photographing traditional media is a nightmarish process (at least for me) and I had to bake this considerably in Photoshop to minimize artifacts. But if you look closely you can still see the texture of the board toward the upper edge of the painting ;)

This painting was made using Liquitex acrylic paints on Strathmore cold press illustration board, using Windsor Newton sable hair brushes :)
