I love Marty! I definitely plan on doing more paintings of him.
Painted on a canvas I built myself that’s about 3 inches deep, ‘Marty’ was originally a simple sketch in my sketchbook. I spent maybe about 7-10 hours on him I think? Give or take. This painting was varnished with a high gloss varnish, which really helps make the colors more rich when viewed in real life.
I once overheard an elderly lady who saw it hanging in a gallery during an art reception say that she hated it and it was the scariest and ugliest goat ever! I don’t think she ever realized the artist was standing right beside her smirking.
