Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this work, is evident in my attempt to use tones and light to show magnificence in human form.
I created this piece using oils, and prisma pencil. It is my first attempt at a nude.
My inspiration in creating this piece comes from the many traditional, and contemporary nudes I have seen. I wanted to create my version of light and darkness ,and the beauty that lies between.
My name is Patrick Reilly. I work as a tattoo artist by trade. I have been working as such since 2001. I reside in Las Vegas Nevada and have been painting my whole life. I love oils, and water color. I also enjoy mixing in some prisma markers and pencils here and there. I love playing with different color pallets and using mono chromatic fades to show depth and emotion in my work. I have also used tattoo ink on canvas to compliment the texture of the oil and acrylics. I use all the traditional tools and some not so much as I like to use makeup brushes to add a softening effect to ad a touch of realism, or many other subtle variations in the colors melodic tones.. A lot of my works take several weeks to complete because of the drying time, and the layering of oils before I can seal the final product. I thank you for looking at my work.
