Busy busy busy [Jul. 15th, 2005|03:49 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've been so very busy! So many projects going on!

Next on the list are two very large paintings. One is for the Arthurian Legends show - I'm doing a portrait of Morgan Le Fay. I will be starting on it shortly (you can watch me HERE). It will be quite large (same size as my Ophelia Immortal and Atlantis paintings).

Also I will be starting some layout sketches for the giant 60"x48" commissioned painting I will be starting soon! It's a complicated piece with a lot of figures in it, so that will probably take me a little while to sort out on paper before I start setting it down in paint. Ought to be fun though! I will indeed be showing that project on my webcam too =)

Hope all is well! I haven't had much LJ time lately since I've been mired in work. Sorry to be so dull, lol.

Took me three times to get it to work. Odd. O_o Hey. Jasmine? I know you don't take requests and all, but... is there any way you could work a turtle into your painting?

Oh! Sometimes I take requests, hehe! Actually I did a custom painting with a Star Tortoise in it a month or two ago - I should post some pics, it turned out really cute =)

I might paint some new turtles too sometime - I certainly get a lot of inspiration living here to do so. I see turtles all the time! We are always stopping the car to get them out of the road, hehe.

Exciting!
Your big pieces always turn out realy beautiful, maybe cos you can put more detail in it and let yourself "go" on the paper more.
Will this be a self portrait style one or are you using a model?

Definitely - I think most of my best pieces are my largest ones.

It'll be loosely a self-portrait, not quite similar enough to be me, but probably a little bit at least. We'll see - I get fickle sometimes with my paintings.

HOLY CHIT!!! That's HUGE!!! I sooo can't imagine painting something that HUGE!! My largest is 16x20, and that was big enough for me. I don't have the attentions span for one thing...LOL

Isn't that crazy? It's FIVE FEET ACROSS! It ought to be beautiful when I'm done, but probably nuts to work on. I have to do the big ones while I'm kneeling against a board and it always plays hell with my knees/back.

I'm sure it does. I don't think my fibromyalgia would let me do that O.o

Lol - yeah, my signature is pretty clearly on it still - they didn't change a single pixel, hehe!

I'll drop them a note asking them to remove it immediately - if it's still there in a few hours I'll contact the appropriate authorities =)

Thank you so much!!!
