I hope I have stepped up to the mark. I've been trying to improve my standard of painting by pushing myself to try harder. No more of 'good enough' which can be such a bad habit to fall into. I think I'm getting there now with the following pictures though and these are the ones going to the shop along with some of my prints. Again they are miniatures painted on wood roughly 4x4inches square.
This is a copy of Merlin's ACEO.
My Lunar Moth, which is totally my own idea and design, so hands off please :)
and here is the process for my Green Man. I've always loved the Green Men I've seen in shops but never found one special enough to buy, so I'll find it hard to let this one go.
I started with a background wash of yellows,
and then gradually built up the details and greens.
Finally finishing with a green wash overall and picking out highlights and shadows.
I did actually like him most in the first picture and would like to do an Autumn Green Man in browns! Now that I've not seen anywhere :)
My time since my last post has been manic, so sorry for not being around much. After Thursday I get to have a little time off and put some much needed work into my Moleskin swap. More details of that later, but you can take a peek at the blog from my profile page.
I am so looking forward to half term and visiting all my lovely but neglected blog friends. I hope you have all been well and are looking forward to Samhain/Halloween, I sure am :) so TTFN and have fun all :)
