Playful Painter

ipod_painting.jpgToday I saw a website that was fun. It is Playful Painter which is a blog of sorts. The artist paints oil on masonite. Many of his pictures are computer related. The way I found out about it was watching commandN with Amber MacArthur. On her show, they featured a particular painting he did of the Firefox logo in the dock of a Mac.

There are several videos on his site. They are time lapsed videos of him doing the painting. Very interesting to watch. Not being a painter, I am always fascinated by oil paintings. They are built in layers. It starts all splotchy from the lowest layer and works upwards getting more detail as each color layer goes on. You get to see that in the videos.

Make sure you check out his All Paintings link.
