Oil Dry Brush with Jason Frieling

Image

For this painting I chose burnt sienna and vandyke brown for my color palette.  I started by tracing over the top of my reference on spirit paper.  I do this the same way I would for a tattoo.  I use a ballpoint pen to get my hard edges and a #2 pencil to get my values.  After the image has been traced I will import the stencil into photoshop so the image can be mirrored.  I print the image and project it to the canvas by drawing with a red prismacolor col-erase color pencil.  I will either use a red or a blue color pencil depending if my over all look will be warm or cold.  Once I have traced my stencil on the canvas I will start painting.  Using only burnt sienna I load my paintbrush and then wipe it off on a paper towel before I hit the canvas with it.  I start by blocking in my shapes and values staying away from my highlight areas.  I will use a kneaded eraser to lift up paint in the highlight areas where needed.  I typically scrub my brushes to apply the paint trying to only tint the canvas.  This usually ruins my paint brushes after a couple of paintings.  But its a small price to pay.  I continue only using burnt sienna until the entire image is blocked in and looks done.  I will then start using the vandyke brown to get my deep values and shadowed areas in place.  I will use a one inch or two inch brush to get large smooth gradients and to sweep over some of my highlights staying away from the strongest highlights.  I try to tint the whole canvas with paint except the strong highlight areas.

Born in 1983 and raised in Phoenix Arizona.  I have been tattooing professionally since 2005.  Self taught, I have been influenced by people like Jeff Gogue, Nikko Hurtado, Paul Acker, Joe Capobianco, Basil Gogo, Andrew Gonzalez, Guy Aitchison, Aaron Cain, and Derek Noble.  I have had the privilege to be guided by fellow artists who have helped me throughout the years.  I am always striving to create dynamically creative and refined work.  I definitely enjoy creating more of a surrealistic style of art with a darker look.   If I am not tattooing then you will find me promoting, painting, drawing, or 3d sculpting.  I have spent my whole life dedicated to studying art.  I have put all my time and effort and money into the technical aspect of art and tattooing from the beginning and will keep doing so until the day i die…..
