This is a ridiculously fun painting that I started because I was bored on the weekend. I love all of the little details that i have put in and i am scared to do the background because I am worried i am going to mess it up. I love the flowers in the hair and the butterfly and I am excited to finish up the wine glass. Also it has been fun working from my easel again because I forgot that experience. I love the vibe I create with the piece. :))
I finished this piece, and i am very happy with how it turned out. I especially like the butterfly because it was fun making it so detailed in much a small space. The pictures still suck though lol.
So i started my actually project this week. It was really fun, although I took out some of the mushrooms in the painting because they were completely bathes in shadows and i wasn't sure how to make them show up enough. Next week i might try to add them back, and I will definitely paint the butterfly in. I am happy with how the trees and grass look in the background as I feel like i got the darkness pretty well. I am most happy with how the figure turned out, I struggled a little in its creation, specifically the feet and mixing some of the color. I ran out of the main skin tone base that i was using, and I didn't recreate it perfectly so the forearms are slightly a different more purple color, but it is barely noticeable so I think it is fine. I love the way that the figure turned out. Also the last picture is kind of shinny and it doesn't really look like that in real life. i am going to have to take a better picture once i finish it. I still probably need to work on my tree painting skills lol, but they are just so much more boring than the figure.
sorry the picture is so shitty. I finished this painting in my biopsych class and didn't really have the opportunity to take a good picture. I'll try to take a better picture at lunch outside. I am happy with it. I like the foreshortening of the arm and I'm really happy with the gold. Also I might change up the mossy mushroom tree in the foreground cuz it kind of sucks but I didn't really have time to do it lol.
So I spent a really long time over the weekend to finish the figure. Idk what I am going to do in the right corner b/c I was planning on doing a frog on top of a mushroom, but I feel like that will mess w/ the relationship b/t the figures and the butterfly. Also I put so much gold paint on this painting so if you turn it the right way so many things shine. I love it. Also i did some glazing to help make the shrooms and the figures more distinct in color. I am happy with how it is turning out.
The right most big painting is my real at home project that I spent a long time on(~24 combined hours). The other four are just me having fun with my freetime over the past few weekends.
*The chin of the right mask painting is a little bit different now because I fixed it but I don't really want to take a new picture because I am lazy.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
