I finished my art explorations this week and I'm waiting for the paintings to dry so I can continue.
The heart is a bonus painting that goes on a small easel that I'm sending to someone who ordered a larger work. The grayscale painting has a white sapphire in it and is intended to be backlit. I'll post pictures once it's done. The blue and purple painting needs some work, but it's a rendition of a hypergate from swtor. The canvas panel painting is an old one that I gave new life to by adding different colors. I'm not sure how much I want to layer on.
Finally, the flower painting is from when I lived in Korea. It was inspired by a Van Gogh painting that I liked when I was younger--and still like, of course. I never finished it, so I painted the sides and redid the background. I think it could use another round before it's finished.
Here's the two paintings I've been working on, Sea and Star Slice. Although they definitely have some color I'm going to tone them down somewhat so that they capture the look of their companions. I always hate this intermediate stage of painting because I have to exaggerate the color in order for it to work.
I'm going to paint this weekend before I go away next week, and continue posting my progress. Thanks for looking!
