No prelims! This is as "alla prima" as I can get with Acrylic paint... it's often a rush to beat the drying time, however mediums help here --but that's where the rush is...juggling all visual elements at once, and trying not to paint off key... (especially for these two guys; their scorn would be silent but deadly) There were no prelims for this image, I just jumped in with paint and had at it. The duo were drawn or blocked in with paint as a line drawing of sorts, and the form was patched in as I went along. Yes, the copping is intentional. Took about an hour and 20 min.
