Ok, so UPDATE. “Leviathan Queen” is being…extremely difficult. Basically, if I hadn’t taken those couple months off where I did a bunch of digital, this piece would already be done–it would have been ok, not great, but ok. Now that I’ve come back to it, though, with new knowledge, I just can’t get past the errors and keep seeing things wrong with it. I need to stop repainting stuff and just finish it already!
On the bright side, I stretched a new canvas and am looking forward to beginning a new oil in one of my favorite themes–fairy tale subversion. This time: Rapunzel.
Also, took some photos a few weeks ago–I want to do a very realist still life. I figure there’s a lot I could learn from that.
To keep me going through my trials with “Leviathan Queen”, I’ve painted two mini paintings–lots of fun! Thinking I might try to sell them for $15 apiece on Etsy.
Finally, a bit of digital–my next panel of “Origin”. Looking back at the third panel, me thinks it may be a good idea to repaint that with a looser style like this one. This panel still needs work, though, so I’ll have another whack at it in a couple days.
