The release of my second Fairy Tale book is close by and I put together stain glass window, inspired images to tease the story. I used watercolour and ink. The new book will be called BREATHE LIGHT, the first story being called Breathe and the second Light. I wanted to write a story that would bring comfort to people and I look forward to sharing the stories I’ve written! You can still purchase my previous books and items at www.mikeyespinosa.bigcartel.comThe main characters Hana, Tala and Mayari. The names were taken from goddesses in filipino culture.LIGHT – A story of twin goddesses of the moon who rebel against their oppressive father, god of the sun.BREATHE – A story about a little boy who will either save or destroy humanity
This painting was created for a client who wanted to express her love and passion for someone. I started out with line work.Then painted the body. Red was added to show how the touch was affecting the body and the senses.
I was given the duty to paint the beloved land for a lovely family who owns this farm land, you can see how much they love their Earth! The canvas is painted on a 24 x 36 inch canvas using acrylic paint.The sky was the first section I painted and I was able to achieve a 3d like effect with the clouds because I painted a texture layer before the sky.Different greens were used and yellows were added to ready made greens and blues to create a variation.White and brown was used to highlight and add depth to the features. Below is the final piece.
An acrylic painting of my friend Justin, I was going through a period of not painting anything and I wanted to get back into painting faces, so I used my friends face to help me. Shout out to Justin Tang for letting me paint his amazing bone structure haha!
I wanted to celebrate femininity, slightly inspired by the Moana film and Te Fiti, the goddess island. I painted the figures like they were in the form of an island with the hairs falling over their bodies as if it were a waterfall. The woman in the centre faces the air as if she is giving air and a breath of life to the island.
These are old pieces I did when I finally was confident enough to call myself an artist. This series I call the Emperor and King. These pieces celebrate the male body.
I worked on this painting for a lady who once worked in Washington as a nurse and was taken back by the cherry blossoms that were there. For once she took the time to stand back and pause to appreciate something and she wanted that to be recreated in a painting.
I imagined her looking up and noticing the blue skies and how it compliments the cherry blossoms to create light hues reaching towards the sky. I wanted to create awe and grandeur to the viewer as the branches spread across the sky.
I have a little friend that loves My Little Pony, I would call myself a fan of MLP so I had such fun painting this piece for my friend!
Painting her body first, and the sky around her. I did this because Pinkie Pie is famed for her curly locks and I wanted to have the freedom of painting her curls wherever I wanted to.
Of course Pinkie Pie is known for her energetic behaviour and love for foods and parties and I wanted to include this feeling in the painting with sparkles, cookies and a picnic mat! Wouldn’t you want to eat with her!
