These two oil paintings on canvas were ordered to be uncompleted for shots in the movie "Being Awesome".
The character Blake Saracen played by Sean McBride in the movie would be in the process of painting the works. In the movie the character is instructed in his art class to paint a picture of his family and an autobiographical self portrait.
The film was shot in Memphis, TN and is set to premier in 2013.
I had great fun making these paintings with instructions from the director. I can't wait to see the finished movie.
I created these in the same way that I would an actual portrait, this were just never meant to be completed. The tan coloring in the background is my ground color which is then built upon with thin layers of pigment to achieve the final result.
