Hey there guys! Again, sorry if you have been checking here and haven't had updates. I have been considering killing this blog feed and going with www.grantcooley.com exclusively. If you would like me to keep positing here, perhaps going back to a more content/artistic review, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your feedback. I'd be glad to expound if someone is listening. In the meantime, here is my latest Icons Portrait: Superman!

Howdy guys! I know it has been a while since I have posted here. I have been doing most of my updates over at : www.grantcooley.com . It has been one crazy summer.

Hello all! I finally shot some better pics of my new work and, while I was at it, shot my very first oil painting: "Big Arms". Just some different stuff that I have been showing at art shows across Nashville.

Hey there guys! Here is the Sam Final. 18x24 Oil on Board 130 min. Worked off of a toned board this time and actually added some original elements. Working from a great portrait painting book that is helping with my color understanding. Also, it is worth pointing out, that these are done in 2 sessions. Sam was 50 min and 60min. respectively. I drop in the traditional figure study layer first and then come back within 48 hours and pop out the deeps and highs. This helps keep the painting from being muddy and allows me a second dive.
