June Guy Challenge 2013 - June Guy 12

Well folks, I've had another art tantrum of a day.  Whatever could go wrong, did.  I haven't painted in a while and wanted to paint a picture of Jazz poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron.  The picture (from one of his album covers) is like a negative or partial silhouette.  Anyway, I struggled with the painting, and with recording the video.  After  that struggle juggle, I did another video in my art journal book and I had a few product and skills malfunction.  Moving on from there, I created some tags and greeting cards, all of which gave me some problem.  But I hung in there.  I had some really great music going and I just pushed on. 

I've decided to include Gil Scott-Heron in the June Guys Challenge. 
I'm not crazy about the outcome but it will do.  Here's the video, let me know what you think.


  1. I really LOVE your speedpainting :-) I think you did a hell of a job. I like this portrait very very much.
