New Painting! [May. 14th, 2005|09:25 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yay! I've finally finished that big landscape painting I've been working on! I have worked my fingers to the bone on this one, with all of the little details! Seriously, I might have to take tomorrow off (from painting at least) - my fingers are not wanting to hold things right now.

But it's worth it - this painting is really cool! There is so much going on in this painting - it's neat! Lots of hidden little faeries and faces..... click below to see it....

"Eyes in the Underbrush"

Enjoy!!

It's gorgeous! I love the little dragon face on the right side. He gave me a chuckle... And the tiny little eyes underneath the leaves are so cuuuuute!

Thank you Heather! I've been toying with doing a "hidden pictures" type book sometime in the future - sort of like "The Eleventh Hour" (one of my favourite children's books - if you haven't seen it, check it out!).

I haven't seen that book, but I know of it!! I will look for it the next time we go to the library. That would be awesome for you to do! I love pictures like that.

It's such a wonderful book! It's by Graeme Base - it's a picture book and also a mystery! Try to solve it without looking in the back, hehe!

Woooow, Your use of colours is brilliant again. So much color going on and still it's mostly green. Lovely. And I love the hidden fairies too. Don't you just love that kind of paintings that, when you look further, seem to have hidden details in it? It's neat.

Poor fingers though. I had the same thing with my "merchild with sea stars"-painting (all those dots O.O) I was painting the dots, and while doing so, my hand suddenly made a weird movement (uncontrolled, lol) and my brush flew through the air. It was so suddenly. I couldn't control it, it just happened. I think my hand was sitting too long in the same position, it was funny though, haha.

Thank you Miriam!

Lol - that's exactly how my hands get - sometimes after I've been painting for so long, my fingers will just reflexively grab or drop stuff!

Thanks

Just wanna say thanks for inspiring me to start drawing again. Just finished my first drawing in like a year (will add it soon to my small collection of artwork i still have - gave most of it away to friends, bf's and family). If you're interested in seeing some of my work. You can go to my Journal, i added you as a friend, there's a link there to a photoalbum that has some of my work in it. Still thinking of making a webpage maybe...lol. :-P
But thanks. >^.^
