It takes me about 12 hours over a period of 4 days to complete a painting roughly.
This all depends on the size of the piece and the level of detail. Sketching usually takes me 1 hour-2 hours.
Priming the canvas with acrylic gesso and waiting on the canvas to dry usually takes about 1-3 hours altogether.
I factor in the supplies, shipping and handling, and the my worth.
To start any painting, it costs roughly 150.00 pending the specifics. Shipping and handling all depends on location it is being shipped to and weight/dimensions,
The remaining charges are based on the artist's worth and preference.
I began painting in the 7th grade around 1995 when I took my first Art class. Later around 1998, I took a class in the 10th grade during high school. After joining the Marine Corps in 2000 I began painting recreationally because I knew eventually I would get to this point.
I'd say seriously painting since 2008.
I've been a lover of art since elementary.
Music inspires me as I am painting. There's a multitude of things that inspire me. I am inspired to inspire folks to follow their dreams. I am inspired by culture and spirituality.
