I just finished the first painting of my Canadian Currency series called 'Give No Quarter'. The canvas was actually a picture that was on sale at the local grocery store. I bought it because it was cheap for it's size (it's about 3 x 3 feet) for 10 dollars.
I sort of drifted away from the style of lines I've been doing for the past several months because I found it would restrict this piece (although I did put loose lines in the background). I went with bright and abstract colours. It was a little close to cartoonish in the beginning but I worked in lighting and shading to smooth it over.
I'll probably be doing the dime next! :)
