Before and After: Revisiting and Revising a Painting From the Past

Hello Everyone!

Today’s post is going to be an exploration of how my art style has changed through the ages. Here are two versions of the same picture. The first one I made in the year 2005 when I was a teenager. This piece is typical of my art style in that year- with all of the thin lines and over stylized sense of proportion.  (I found this out after comparing it to other pieces I made around the same time.)

Before Picture: Year 2005

The second is the same exact picture that I have altered (using sharpies, colored pencils, crayons and markers) to reflect my current art style. In the newer piece, I incorporated my new fondness for thick black lines, rich, dark color and central positioning of the subject. I also cropped the image, and placed it on a sturdier backing.

After Picture: Year 2013

As a result of this little artistic experiment, I was able to breathe new life into a remnant of the past , while at the same time creating a new piece of art to decorate my art studio.

This was an interesting experiment, and I definitely encourage you to try it.

If you like my art or even just find it interesting, like my Facebook fan page to get updates about new works that I create or follow this blog @!

As always, thank you so much for taking time to read this post!
