Randy Orton: Explosive Original Painting

Acrylic on 15" x 20" Illustration Board

Artwork by Rob Schamberger, painted in 2024

As soon as Randy Orton returned to action at the 2023 Survivor Series I was excited to make a new painting of him. This is another of the expressive acrylic paintings I’ve been doing of late, using the technique called ‘indirect painting’ where I do a monochromatic greyscale underpainting to work out all of the tones, and then applied a glaze of orange paint over the top. All of that underpainting is transformed with the addition of color while staying pretty loose and energetic. I feel like the explosive energy of this painting speaks well to how it is to watch Randy in the ring.
