Back to the Land of the Giants…..

     I’ve gotten an amazing amount of art done of late. I also decided to make this painting have an Asian look. However, I stayed with the original subject of Caleb and the sons of Anak. Though I thought I’d mix and match the costumes and background scenery. I used the Great wall of China and then made the central character somewhat Japanese. When I add in the Giants they may look like Samurai. I’ve not decided yet. Maybe I’ll just make something up. No matter, so far its just an imaginary setting with a Biblical basis. After all there is nothing new under the sun and the Bible is chock full of great stories.

    Man oh man, I am excited to see this come together!

      Steven, as an artist you may want an up close and personal view. Just click on the image and it takes you to a bigger image. Click on that image and get an exploded view. That way you can see the brush strokes and other little nuances that artists think are cool. Any way that’s the kind of stuff I like to see and it helps me develope develope my technique.

        Wow thank you. I,m even more amazed seeing these up close.
        Amazing detail work. Some day if God lets me I want to do oil painting, but right now I just don’t have the time or a clue how to start.

        I’ll try to do an online oil tutorial in tha future. I started to do one a while back but the subject matter didn’t seem to click. So, I took it down. I’ll give it another go if you would like me too. also this approach can be used for acrylic paint as well. So you can practice in acrylic before investing in oils (which can be expensive) and try to master a new medium. I may get really creative and try to do some video to post. We’ll see.

    OK. Steven, I’ve started making preparations for an instructional blog. By the way there is a partial painting beneath this one that I was using as a demo a few months ago. I’ll try something smaller this time. But, I think you will find very useful. We’ll get started soon. Check this blog for updates.

    Hi Jeremiah – my brother gave me Joshua 17:17 the other day. We’re down at the coast but there are still a couple of giants up the mountain where we come from! The other day I had a word for our local retirement village re. Caleb at 85… Asking permission to use your art work on our church website – at least this specific one, will of course give full credit and link to your blog. Thank you in any case for meaningful art and your interpretation re fear unbelief etc.

      Of course you may use it. I’m honored that you requested permission. It is an unfinished work (artistically speaking and spiritually speaking as well) I wasn’t happy with the composition and will be repainting it at some point. I’d like to see how it turns out on your website. Email me a link at May God bless your work in Him. BTW: Did you look at the Second Giant unbelief post? – Jeremiah
