Today, at the request of a friend, I painted another video game painting. He loves the video game Red Dead Redemption and wanted to see what I could come up with. I’ve never played the game, but it appears to be an open world cowboy game where you just go around doing cowboy stuff. All the official video game photos I found online had a bright red sky with a yellow sun and red mountains as a background, so that was a good place to start.
I gathered my materials…
…and started the long process of painting my white canvas bright red. I had no idea how hard it was going to be to get a solid red background without obvious brush strokes showing through. I ended up putting about 4 coats of red paint on my 11″x14″ canvas before I was satisfied with it. It was a long, messy process and I’m glad I had my handy dandy painting apron.
Anyway, here it is!
Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to share my blog with your friends!
