Laying in the underpainting on a new surreal figurative piece. It’s an oil painting of a female subject (my friend Melissa) with some feathery surprises. This speed painting demo shows the blocking in stage of the process - essentially the base coat. Once it dries, I will go back in and add more detail, so come back and check out the finished piece soon! ---

Gay Concentration Camps in Chechnya - It’s Time to Take Action - Paul Richmond Studio

Image
Order the shirt: https://traxlertees.com/products/chechnya-lgbt-awareness-t-shirt
Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, & Biphobia, and we need to talk about what’s happening in Chechnya. You’re not hearing about it from our politicians or most of our news media, but it's important.
Chechnya's a republic of Russia. Gay and bisexual men there are being rounded up and held in torture camps. Over a hundred have been arrested and there have been at least three deaths.
One survivor said “Once they bring you there, they immediately start the beatings and electrocutions, demanding information about who you were dating.”
A spokesperson denied the reports saying it can't be true bc there ARE no gay people in Chechnya. Which is bullshit and terrifying. That is Hitler mentality right there - alive and well in 2017.
I want to be VERY clear: It is NOT acceptable for anyone anywhere in a position of influence to turn a blind eye to this. President Trump, I …

My Childhood Art - Weekly Vlog 35 - Paul Richmond Studio

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYPthz17fhk
I thought it would be fun to show you some of the paintings and drawings I made when I was growing up! I had an inspiring art teacher and parents who taught me that anything was possible, and I think those are two of the biggest reasons why I am an artist today. Here’s a short peek at some of my journey and a few stories from along the way.

Cheesecake Boys Coloring Party with Robert Burcar- Weekly Vlog 34 - Paul Richmond Studio

Image
My friend Robert Burcar helps me celebrate the release of my first coloring book, Cheesecake Boys, with a pinup coloring party!
Pinup girls from the ’40s and ’50s had such a hard time keeping their clothes on. A loose nail, a curious pup, or even a brisk wind all seemed to exist for the purpose of disrobing unsuspecting cuties. But one important question has gone unanswered—until now: how did men always manage to dodge these obstacles? Now it’s time to even the score!
Welcome to the colorful world of the Cheesecake Boys, pinups for a new generation where skin-baring wardrobe malfunctions take an equal opportunity approach. Grab your crayons, markers, or colored pencils because these fellows need your magic touch—all over!

Time Lapse Oil Painting Portraits - Studio Sneak Peek 19 - Paul Richmond Studio

Image
Watch full video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foScRq7kot8
I am finishing up commissioned portraits of two sisters in this time lapse video. I love painting portraits and using them as a means of telling more of a story about the individual being portrayed. For this diptych that was commissioned by the subjects’ mother, I asked her to share with me as much information as she could about their interests, personalities, and stories. Many of those elements are incorporated into the backgrounds. We also decided that the pieces should each stand on their own, but also have a strong connection point, hence some of the overlapping elements.

My Coming Out Story - Weekly Vlog 33 - Paul Richmond Studio 
Watch video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58P7reuOEIQ
Hey everyone! Today's video deals with a topic that people are always asking about - my coming out story. I think it's cool to hear how different LGBTQ YouTubers made their journeys out of the closet, so I'm adding my own voice to the conversation. I was raised Catholic in a small, conservative part of the Midwest where sexuality was seen in pretty black and white terms. Even though I was confused and questioning from a very early age, I repressed those feelings because I didn't want to be a disappointment to my mom and dad. But I knew I was different, and this is the story of how I grew to accept myself for who I really am. I hope by sharing my story, the experiences I've had and the lessons I've learned will help inspire you to live as authentically as possible. I love you guys!

I do SO many sketches, especially Cheesecake Boys, that I never get around to coloring. And that’s where YOU come in! I thought it would be awesome to share a new pinup boy sketch with you every Friday so you can print him out and color him however you’d like – crayons, colored pencils, paint, GLITTER…the possibilities are endless!! And if your coloring skills are more high-tech, feel free to load him into your coloring app of choice and do it that way! I want to see your creations, so post them to social media with the hashtag #PAULRICHMONDSTUDIO.

Things to Never Say to an Artist - Paul Richmond Studio

Image
Watch full vid on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUHNSnvbjvA&t=1s
Everyone's always trying to get free stuff from artists. Watch us turn the tables in "Things Never to Say to an Artist.” Share this with a creative person who should never sell themself short!
Every artist has been in this position before - someone reaches out to you and says they love your work and want to buy or commission something. Your heart starts to flutter, especially if you are relatively new to the art profession and/or desperate to pay off a mountain of student loans. You begin to imagine a future of fame and fortune in the art world. But then suddenly, this bubble bursts when your potential patron utters something from the "Things to Never to Say to an Artist" list. It would almost be hilarious if wasn't so sad. The common thread on the "what not to say" list is that these statements always involve trying to get artists to sell themselves short - sometimes even …
