Creating Big Foot…How do You Paint a Legend?


 

Dear Friends and Associates,

The ultimate artistic challenge was thrown down this last year by several of my clients and friends.
“Can Jody Bergsma paint a Big-Foot?

(If you have an idea for a title…please leave it in the comments box below… Winner gets a print!)

This was quite a dilemma for me as like all mysteries there are no models really, just ideas, legends and stories.

Two request were truly unique. One coming from some prestigious members of the  BFRO
(Big Foot Research Organization) and our local Native Americans.

I had to think about it and finally after talking to Tina Schwindt  of “Bay to Baker” Gift Store  , in Fairhaven, whose Native Grandmother had stories to tell …I saw this image.
Everything of value comes from the spark of inspiration and I had been waiting for one to happen.

Did you know that the Northwest has more Big Foot sightings than anywhere else in the world?
“The Tall Men of the Forest” have a long lineage of stories in all of the local Native tribes.
I have been told some myself, and they are chilling.

Art…Starts with the idea and sketch.
I begin with small quick sketches that then develop to a final.
It is then transferred to watercolor paper.

(The eraser is my friend…but only on the sketch…erasers ruin watercolor paper.)

Mixing golds ,browns and forest greens will create a NW stage.

The rays of light in the forest are simply created by painting a thinner wash of color in the rays.

The under-washes set of the feeling of fur and color balance.
 The blue-greens of the forest are used in the shadows of the subjects.

I use fine #1 liner brushes for the details.

Each area is painted separately to create definition.

There is allot of detail in a piece like this…Patience is required!

The layering of color brings animals to life.
