April 2024 - 'Liquid Courage'

Yet another digital painting over a
pencil drawing from my 'real world' sketch-
book — & you can see that original here.

When I was a kid — a library had a
display with a Pieter Bruegel (the elder) painting
in it — and I spent a lot of time studying it.

Painting in Brussels & Antwerp in the
1400s — I later discovered that his paintings
were often meant to be parables warning
viewers about their various vices.

His work is a little odd and not as refined
as the art I usually gravitate to — but there is
something about his style that has certainly made
an impression on me — having to do in part
because of underlying messages in many.

Though, the original sketch for this
began, as I often do with just a 'scribble' —
(and then looking for ideas from those lines) — as
I worked at this —Bruegel's influence became
more and more obvious — from the center
creature's clothing to the 'warning' about at least
one effect of having too much to drink.
