A client wanted a pair of humpback whales with a sense of urgency. Depicting the fight for survival against whale hunting. I've never painted whales before, so I dove into studying them. Studying water and light rays. I'm happy with it. The owner is extremely pleased.
My return client asked me to pain a 4x2 ft piece with two humpback whales. He has a great admiration for the Sea Shepherds organization and their fight against the horrific hunting of the gentle giants. So this piece he wanted to depict a story of their fight for survival. It's still a few weeks to completion but here's my progress pics
Thought I was done. Nope. I'm done now40x36 commissioned #cherryblossom . Edges continue with the vines
Said goodbye to two of my paintings this past weekend. I love these pieces so it's was extremely hard.
Commission 36x36. Based on my 48x48. The collector loved the larger one but didn't have the space. Thick textures on the blooms
And these are my old yucky floors. My husband installed new ones. Now the kitchen is next.
Starting a new 48x36 blending portrait art, geometrics, and splatter
Varnishing finished commissioned piece
Flesh tinted glaze and ice blue tinted glaze. Small addition...HUGE impact!
Need to add in more spidered branches
2nd day in working on two Cherry blossom pieces . Adding in more blooms on top, plus adding in glaze tinted color contrasts to tree and blooms, will add in more spider branches and buds. #workinprogress #painting #cherryblossom #modernart #asianart #interiordesign #art
