A new painting! [Nov. 20th, 2003|08:38 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Here is my latest!

"Winter Magic"

Now I need to get some packing and a few last minute things done =) I'm leaving first thing tomorrow morning, and I will be back late on Sunday! If there is anything needing my immediate attention, feel free to email me in case of emergency. Otherwise, my email, painting and livejournal duties will resume on Monday!

I love it! I especially like the shade on the red lips and the perfect snowflakes :) How did you know how to paint those snowflakes?

Thank you!!! Hehe, I do several layers on the snowflakes (darker and more transparent, working up to lighter and more opaque white), so it evens out any blatant mistakes, lol. I learned that trick a couple of years ago when I was trying to paint a picture of some sparkly Christmas lights for some reason.....

Snowflakes

Well you've mastered it! hehe

That nose is too cute, Matt's gonna grab it! Or maybe that's why it's a little red already lol!

Jasmine, this painting is GORGEOUS and if I wasn't so strapped for cash, I would probably bid on it.

I think your work just keeps getting more and more beautiful. I notice that a lot of the faeries that you paint seem to look like you lately, and I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I think is a nice touch. You seem to be adding a cute, mischevious glint in their eyes which I think is reflected in the few photos I've seen of you (mainly your userpics).

Keep up the beautiful work... and may I suggest, you should paint a faery that has kind of a "gypsy" style to her! Not that gypsies and faeries necessarily go together, but I think it could be fun. :)

Thank you!!!

Hehe, I'm not really sure how I do it - it's almost like my hands do it without me thinking about it. I think a lot of it is just being very patient - I use lots and lots of tiny thin layers of paint, and sometimes having one colour underneath a thinner transparent colour on top will give a very different effect than having just one layer of the two colours mixed together. Lol - did that even make sense?

She is so cute. She seems like something right out of a Disney movie.
