'Midnight Temptation' and Illustration Friday 'Beneath'
I think this piece that I worked on this week fits the Illustration Friday theme of Beneath! The two figures beneath this tree are being tempted but which one do you think will succumb?
I used some texture paste on the tree to make it stand out and the paint is acrylic. I really enjoy this style as I just run with my idea and see where it takes me, the name of the piece just comes to me as I work on it. I start with a sketch with no paticular colour or design in mind and I find it takes on it's own personality as I work on it.
It's really good for me to work on these paintings in between this big commission that I've been working on as the commission is the total opposite, detailed, and very well planned. I'm about to start on my last piece of the 3 paintings and can't wait to show you when it's finished.
I've had a couple of exciting days on the jewellery front too, 6 sales in 24 hours!!! So exciting! I love selling 'my babies' as it's so good to know that they are going to be worn and enjoyed and it gives me good reason to make some new pieces.
This painting will be varnished with two layers of gloss varnish as that seems to really make the colours pop! Then it's going in my shop!!!
Tomorrow I'm off to town to spend some of my art vouchers that I got for my birthday in my fave art shop!!! Yipee!!!!!!
