The epic painting continues! OK, maybe I'm being a bit dramatic, but drama is what you need when painting a baseball game. If you think watching baseball is slow going , try painting it! I have the sky 90% complete (because that was the easiest part) and I have the guys in the dugout about the same. I removed the camera guy in the bottom left corner. I think the final detailing of the fence will work well enough.
The crowd is slowly coming along. I needed some inspiration for painting large crowds...
(this website) called Olga's Gallery to see more
I am using a palette knife when I want to lay the paint on thick. I used it in the sky , the grass and on the glistening white uniforms. My main goal now is to block in the rest of the crowd then go back and add some detail strokes to make the front rows stand out a bit. Several hundred figures started ...several thousand to go! I hope I finish before the season starts.
It is coming along nicely. The sky is so natural looking. I expect it is a bit easier than the fans to paint.
