Super-George painting

Earlier this month I took to my garage, fired up my compressor, and started work on another painting. This time a George Reeves for the Superman Celebration art show in Metropolis, IL.

He was done in black and white on a 24″x30″ canvas with Createx acrylic airbrush paint.

First I roughed him out in pencil, then used the airbrush and grey paint to sketch and start to fill in the shapes and shadows.

I then started hitting some of the highlights with white paint, and darkening more of the shadows with black.

After about a day or so off and on going back and forth with black, grey, and white, I finally finished him up the day before heading up to Metropolis. Thankfully airbrushed acrylics dry really fast!

He was a big hit in Artists Alley- especially with some old friends of his!

I also had my “Man Who Laughs” painting on display as well. It was the same size and done the same way for my show at the Orpheum Theatre last month.
