Grunge is back – paintings and postcard sets for sale

art, music, painting

Grunge postcard set – on etsy store here

It’s been a while since these paintings were done but were created with a sense of nostalgia. Was really transfixed the first time that I saw the Smell Like Teen Spirit music video. It was so different and entertaining. Hooked on this new music called grunge.

Later on bought a stereo system which had my first cd player. The first two cd’s that I bought were classic Queen and Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam became my favorite album and was obsessed with it. Later on got into the likes of  Soundgarden, Screaming Trees, and Stone Temple Pilots.

Mark Lanegan painting – SOLD

The first painting that was done was of Mark Lanegan. Mark Lanegan is my absolute favorite singer. Enjoy his voice and haunting vocals. This happens to be my favorite painting as well. Ended up posting a pic of the painting on a blog and it sold instantly. After that decided to do the Chris Cornell painting. Later decided to just do a grunge series of paintings. The paintings that were done after Chris Cornell were painted with only black paint on a white canvas. Only using black made for a better and higher quality painting.

After all the paintings were done got them printed as postcards and are selling them as a set. The postcard set is of all 6 paintings.

Just added the remaining paintings that haven’t been sold and the grunge postcard set to my etsy store. You can view the store here

New artwork and a WIP

Uncategorized

Dutchess the cat11 x 14 colored pencil

Really like doing the cat portraits since most of the time will end up doing a dog portrait when commissioned to do a portrait. Had a wonderful picture to work from and enjoyed the detailed background

Canada Sunsetacrylic painting

This painting was done from a photo that I took up in Canada when I went fishing last year. Did the sky and the water in one setting and added some medium to keep it from drying to fast. Like the way it turned out but the photo of the painting doesn’t do it justice since the original looks so much better.

Canada duck WIP11 x 14 colored pencil

Working on this using another picture from the Canada fishing trip. The detail in the duck was overwhelming but it is turning out nice. Since this is not a commissioned artwork it will be available to purchase once finished.

Ordering a portrait and the process involved

Uncategorized

 

Here is an informational post concerning the ordering of a portrait and the process involved. 

To order a portrait you can visit my website at www.whiterabbitart.com or e-mail me at mail@whiterabbitart.com

I do people and pet portraits mostly but will do commissions and can get you a quote for any kind of artwork desired whether it’s traditional or digital. 

 

Here are the things that I will need from you to get started when ordering a portrait:

-reference material (pictures) 1 main reference photo and 2-3 additional photos

-what size portrait you would like

-what medium you would like the portrait done in (pencil, colored pencil, or acrylic paint)

-a deposit on the portrait

One of the main questions that I get asked is if I work from the actual pet/person or from a photo. The answer is I work off of pictures. The pictures can be e-mailed or mailed to me. It is good to send me more than one picture so that the additional reference pictures can be used for fur color, eye color or any distinctive markings. Although if you only have one good photo that is fine. One of the pictures will be used as the main reference picture. In the case below the main reference picture is of Halle the chihuahua. It is a good idea to send as good a quality photo as possible since they are the best to work from and make the best portraits.

Here is a few ideas that I have done in the past that work well in certain circumstances. 

– Will take individual pictures and lay them out on the computer. This works great for family pictures or more than 2 dogs. It’s hard to get more than one dog to pose. Also will have a mock layout for you to view before the portrait is even started.

– Another thing that can be done is to add a family name or your pet’s name on the portrait. Also have done quotes or song lyrics on a portrait before.

 

Your first e-mail update:

One of the perks with having your portrait done by me is I will send you e-mail updates so you can see the work in progress. This also allows you to address any concerns or helps me make changes so you get the best portrait possible. You also feel like your part of the process. Once I receive all the info and things needed from you to get started you will receive an e-mail with the initial pencil sketch. This is a very loose and rough sketch which basically is a reference to get started with the medium.

2nd e-mail update:

After you have ok’d the initial pencil sketch the second e-mail will show you some progress on your portrait. In this case the client went with a colored pencil portrait. Will usually start working from the eye area and then move out from there.

3rd e-mail update:

In the 3rd e-mail update you will see more progress on your portrait. In this example you can see that I’ve finished Halle’s head and am getting ready to start working on his body.

Final e-mail update

Sometimes the 4th e-mail update isn’t the final update but in this case it was. The number of e-mail updates will depend on the complexity and size of your portrait. You’ll notice in the final Halle the chihuahua portrait that the background is pink. The background is usually the last thing that I do and the client will choose the color unless they want me to choose. You can let me know what color background you would like as early as when you send me the photos. Will do gradient, grass or detailed backgrounds if desired. 

Also since the portrait is finished you can choose what color of mat you would like. The mat is basically the border around the picture that goes into a frame. This mat will be cut to a standard frame size. So if you order a 8 x 10 portrait it will be matted for a 11 x 14 frame. This works great because once the portrait is in your hands all you have to do is put it in a frame. Only the pencil and colored pencil portraits are matted.

If you order an acrylic painting the sides of the painting will be painted so you can hang it without a frame if desired. The canvases are hand stretched and have a wire on the back for easy hanging. You can also frame the painting if you want.

Once the portrait is finished and matted will send the portrait out via usps priority mail. Will send you another e-mail letting you know the expected arrival date and give you a tracking number to track the package. 

Hope you found this information helpful and hope to do a portrait for you in the future!!!

Sincerely,

Chad Thomas
