That Iccky lurve Stuff! :-)
Well Hello... I am still here... been frantically busy.. had a few health issues, and well.. Life just took over! But I am Back!
And .... I am back with a New Blog DT... Now I am blogging it here, because under the DT list... I am "Something Else" as opposed to Cards, Scrapbook Layouts etc... which to my mind means I can be as wild and wonderful as I like... and it fits my arty blog nicely!
The New DT position I have is with a bunch of very very dear friends... and is over at The Cupboard Trilogy and this month the challenge is Love!
I have been painting a commission for a friend, I had a guildline to follow, which amazingly I did pretty much stick to... although I begged to be allowed to use Purple in the colour scheme..... I am Thrilled with it, and my friend loves it.. which is a bit of a shame cos I wanted to keep it...LOL... but.. I am thrilled... This is my second sold painting.... I think that makes me a Real Artist now!
So here it is..... from the original (freehand **smug face**) sketch through the scary "OMG I Ruined IT With The Inks" stages, to the re-drawing, the shading with Tinted Charcoal Pencils.... and the finished canvas.. which, did I mention, I love? (excuse the slight colour variations as we go... different lighting shining on the work)
Well.. there you go... I hope you like it... leave me a note if you do! And don't forget to pop over to the main blog and see what the others have made....... I will see you all soon! :-) xxx
