Daily Painting No.57 – Allosaurus In a Jar (Still Life)

2 Comments

Allosaurus trapped in jar

This painting will be the grand finale of black and white still life paintings. I will then bravely face creating still life paintings in (gulp) color. My next three days will be finishing this still life of a allosaurus (although the model I’m referencing look like a T-rex and a Allosaurus blended together) stuck in a jar (a after Christmas clearance jar with snowflakes all over it. Going to use it to store my paints). I am a big fan of dinosaurs. I guess with certain things (dragon, dinosaurs,etc) I will never ‘grow up’.This idea was inspired by my childhood. I have memories of capturing lizards, putting them in a jar, showing them to my friends and family (even show and tell once), and then freeing them into the wild. Imagine being able to catch a small dinosaur. I added a worried look to the allosaurus’ face. You don’t think of it as a kid but it must be pretty traumatic to be caged in a jar, even if you are given your freedom a few hours later. Any feedback is welcome. Unfinished. Painted from scratch using Photoshop with a graphics tablet
