How to Rise Above The Swarm – Part 4

Master_Nick-RiseAboveSwarm5Yesterday’s creation of a starry night sky was a dramatic advancement of the scene. I covered a great deal of the background in a very short time. Now comes the next step, dreaded and shambling. Now comes the fine detail.

Dark shadows creep up from the bottom of the scene. Here, the dead are meticulously outlined not in chalk, but in black paint. Such work cramps my fingers, gnarling them into something like the claw of a zombie. Still, I will not surrender to the lazy sloppiness of abstract impressionism.

Let the zombies flail. I paint with purpose.
