My son just looked over my shoulder and asked why I was posting our drill online.
Ha! I would never surrender my DeWalt cordless drill!
This particular oil painting was done from life, instead of a photo; which I find helps me to eliminate confusion over what details to leave out (I squint alot).
Though I often paint from photos, it expands my visual vocabulary to paint from life.
I used some artistic license to animate the subject just slightly, giving it a more laser-gun appeal. This becomes more apparent if you were to compare it to the photo-taken afterwards- of the drill itself.
