Progression of a Painting

Andy's paintings and mixed media pieces have several layers. In this post, I'll share the progression of a painting - step by step, layer by layer. For this example, I've selected a piece that includes three little birds and several overlapping guitars.

His paintings start with a sketch. He adds layers of color, and finishes with pattern details. Sometimes it takes the layers of paint awhile to dry. So if you stop by his gallery, you'll notice he's usually working on at least three paintings at any given time. Here's this completed piece:

The piece below is visually similar to this one, but you'll notice the layers are created with random objects rather than just paint.

Andy is known for his mixed media assemblage pieces (like this one), which add texture and interest to any room.
