  • this is making my eyes freak out so hard


    I sat next to a boy in art class in high school (when I wasn’t skipping it, like a dummy) that would draw these huuuge pieces/sketches, very similar to these finished pieces, in graphite. He would make small mistakes, erase, and start over on different section. i was amazed at his patience. I would always say “your hands are so trained, you could probably create sum truly amazing realism portraits with those trained hands, your eye for detail, and that ridiculous patience if you’d do some realist portraiture studies bro…” he was a very quiet, nerdy type, yknow? and, he’d just smile n’ keep drawing these repeated geometric patterns. I think it’s interesting/cool that *this* artist is doing these geometric patterns in acrylic *paint* on canvas, rather than in pencil on paper or with ink on paper. Must take a ton of patience and a really trained brush hand… The brush must be an extention of his fingers at this point. Y’know, the artist can probably tell exactly what pressure to use, how to flip the bristles… Any1 that paints small/tiny pieces knows what i mean, haha. These are neat. Thx for sharing them.
