I’ve been working on a 3 piece Wonderland series recently. So far I have completed 2 of the paintings and I’ll be starting on the final piece next week. The one I’ve just finished is of the Queen of Hearts. I did her on 15x20 white artist board with water colors. She is in a red and purple dress with hearts and cards on it. In the back ground of the painting I did white roses that have been painted red. This was EXTREMELY difficult to accomplish. I had the hardest time getting the roses to look like they were painted and not that I just didn’t color them in correctly. I tried dripping the paint onto the roses, but that didn’t look right and wouldn’t dry either. Next I tried smearing paint a crossed it and needless to say that made a mess. So then I just painted each rose leaving spaces and dripping the paint off the roses. At first I was not happy with it but after adding shadows and highlights it actually turned out pretty good.
So now here she is. Let me know what you think.
Also I’ve been working diligently on some brand new Scratch Art for Dragon Con, I’ll try and post photos soon so keep checking my blog for up dates.
Have a Great Day!
