A Blue Faerie [Jun. 11th, 2003|12:04 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I painted a blue faerie tonight - she looks a bit like me ;) She's a slightly more realistic style, but is painted monochromatically all in blue! Sometimes I really like painting with a limited palette.



I'll post her on eBay a little later, after I get a few more pieces finished!

OOO! You look good in blue! ;)

She is loverly, and I really fancy this style. Still "you" but more realistic. I also like the style where you use your face extremely realistically, such as seen in the "In the Reeds" and "In the Grass" as well as the other blue girl that is flying over a city. All are very wonderful! You always know where to put the highlights, too...awesome work as always!

I like that! It reminds me of "Midnight Fairy" which also looks like you =)

Thank you! I think I might have used the same tube of paint on Midnight Fairy, but she was several years ago! Midnight is actually based on Matt's sister Sarah =)

Hehe - we don't look that much alike really - I probably subconsciously mixed our features in the piece (it's not a portrait or anything - it just looks kinda like her!).

Sarah is 19 and is the mother of my niece Cielo =)

hehe, I think she looks exactly like you!

I really like her. It looks almost as though she's under a very bright blue light.

I love both your more realistic fantasy and your "regular" fantasy styles! From what I've seen on your site, she does look quite a bit like you!

Geez Taba, wish I could spot colors that well --I still have to read the darn tubes!

Nice Jasmine! That's a lot of modeling there, looks good! Scott, your fan, said that he really admires your trademark style. Being positively distinguished among others is not an easy thing for anybody so you really have a good thing going there!

Thank you so much! I experimented a lot with different styles, and I've finally found one that fits =)

I see your resemblance in all your work-very striking with very intense eyes. This is one of my favourites of all the things that you have done-melancholic-like an elemental from Picasso's blue period.
Thank you so much for taking time out to reply to my e-mail. I can't tell you how appreciative I am Jasmine. I'll start to implement your hints today, and we'll see how things go.
I'll write you a longer message soon,and I've added you to my friends list.
Thanks again

David

Wow Jasmine!

When I first looked at it I knew Dave would like this one. It's got to be one of my favorites, so far, too. I did see one that I really liked today, though. On EBSQ you have one called surfacing mermaid and that one is lovely. Dave is considering joining EBSQ. I'm gonna convince hime. *wink* You said it's worth it even though there is a monthly fee. I'd like to try it out.

And thank you so much, babe. You are a goddess for emailing us back with so much advice. I can't thank you enough. I have some ideas on how to show you my appreciation though. *wink wink* ;) I think I might be getting the old sketch book out for another dedication drawing. Hmmmm...Jasmine as a fairy...mermaid or saucy vampire? We'll have to see about this. ;)

Thanks so much, sweetie. I look forward to seeing more creations from the goddess of gothic fairy art! You take care. Talk to you again soon. xoxoxoxxxxx
