Martin for The Bloomberg Market!
This was painted and published three months ago for The Bloomberg Market, but because of certain legal agreements, I was asked to not share the artwork until three months had passed. I only had one day to do this piece, from sketch to final, took about ten hours in all to complete. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, especially with the hand. I was told that the printing size for this would only be 2"x3" the size of a business card, so I simplified the brushwork a lot more than normal. The cool thing about simplifying my normal approach is that by doing that I realized for my own benefit that I don't always need to paint everything so tight and so detailed, that brushwork and keeping things a little more simple can not only save me a little stress, but also looks good too.
