The Silversmitten Project
So, my new muse has inspired me to paint again. Oh, not miniatures, but real, 2-D on a canvas painting! And this is the 1st painting I have done since...well, since I painted a Squat for Inquisitor Magazine that got rejected (for being "too dark", which was ironic considering the direction GW's art took not soon after! LOL). That was...'98? Not sure, but you get the idea: this is my 1st painting this century!
It's still not completely done (I intend to finish it this weekend) but I wanted to show the step-by-step of this, as you will see that the techniques I employed here are pretty much the same as what I used in miniature painting.
It started off with a pencil under drawing (which I neglected to take a pic of) that I "inked" with black acrylic. This object is about 10" in diameter.
I built up zones of blue to get a color fade effect in the back ground that would run from the upper right down to the lower left.
I don't intend to display all the art I will be doing for this project on this blog, but I wanted to show off that fact that "I'm back" as far as 2-D art is concerned. This project is in support of an art show that she will be selling her wares at, and I might be selling some of the pieces that I paint up there as well.
Oh, and look what I found in my canvas pad:
