Art Nouveau [Jun. 14th, 2003|11:12 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm still working on my Art Nouveau painting! It's of a Faerie with Lavender =)

I originally decided to do the linework in ink, but instead I opted to do it all in acrylics - eek! Those tiny little lines... very unlike my usual style, but I'm trying my best! So far I just have the outlines done, but I'm getting ready to start the coloured part of the painting now. You can watch my progress here! I think I'm going to be happy with the finished piece. Maybe if I like her I'll do some more!

Last night I finished my "Nymph with Antlers" piece. She's done in shades of burnt sienna, and done in a similar "sorta-realistic" style as my "Smirking Faerie" is. I very much like how she turned out =) I'll probably be posting these tomorrow evening and listing them on eBay!

I've got a couple of custom pieces to work on, as well as some new originals - in other words, today is another Painting Day!

ooooh the outlines are AWESOME! This is going to be another fab piece. I can't wait to see it done! And you're so fast, it'll probably be just a couple of hours! ; P~

I'm watching you paint her right now - hehe. She's looking awesome. ^___^ I love how you just put all the paint together on one plate, I should do that lol. I bought one of those eggshell type things and they're a bitch to clean out. >_

Ah - I used to have one of those! You're right - they are a bitch to clean out! Now I just use paper plates =)
