speed paint + tigged!


This is a speedpaint I did tonight... It started off pretty randomly and evolved into this... I may take it further. Its full of flaws that are begging to be ironed out! I didnt take note of the time, but it took about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Also, thanks to Peter Breese for tagging me (or tigging! we call it tigging over here....) Thus it is now my turn to do the tigging...

Here is the game rule:
1. You must link to the individual who tagged you and post the rules of TAG (which you are currently reading).
2. Post 7 random facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 friends and link to them and
4. Let them know that they have been tagged by leaving a nice little message on their blog.

So here we go:
- My favourite food would be curry... Indian curry! Scottish style. haha!
- I have green eyes.
- I still play with lego.... (should I be admiting that? I dont play like in the literal sense of the word...)
- I (try to) play guitar in a band called "Tin Can" lol
- I dont drink alcohol (Not even whiskey!)
- I like the smell of new books
- um.... I have ten toes

My tag victims are:
Dan szilagyi
Charles Goatley
Wesley Louis
Carl Knox
Jörn Gebert
Natasha Dijkhoff
Christina Dee

so there u have it! I apologise in advance to my victims for any inconvenience caused haha

wes's blog seems to have gone to sleep again, give him a poke in the ribs for me. i find it very hard to believe that the big dude hasn't got any lovely scribbles to post.

Jörn said...

The color and the changing intensity is great on this one. And it was speedpainting? I suggest to do it often! It's great.

James Sugrue said...

Eric Orchard said...

Really gorgeous!

Abby said...

I wish I could get that much down in a 2 hour speedpaint!

Is there a particular "new book" smell you enjoy, or is it just the aroma of freshly-printed pulp in general? :P
