Title: The Joker’s Ressurection
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

Technique

My technique is pretty much all about layers.
The first layer is very physical.
Throwing down paint. Moving it around the canvas.
Creating an abstract layer of color and contrast.

The second layer is the mental layer.
It’s finding the faces, the strange creatures, the animals and all the funkiness that will make up that painting.
I pull them from the abstract layer with brushes and sometimes the air-brush.

Then its just layer after layer of texture, contrast, and detail to bring out these characters.

Then the title just comes to me.

Then it’s on to the next one. – Brett Hess
