New painting! [Dec. 30th, 2003|09:18 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
She is grumpy, and she is:

"Sulking in the Seaweed"

Yep.

Beware - partial nudity, tasteful-mermaid style, but don't click the link if you don't want an accidental glimpse of bosoms.

Now - I'm going to go eat dinner and play some Dark Age of Camelot =)

Lol, yeah- a long time ago, the first time I put one of my nudes online, somebody asked me to please warn them first, lol. Just to be safe! I have some fans who are still in elementary school and stuff, so better safe than sorry =)

Beautiful! :) LOL! Ya, I had to wait till Ian was out of the room to look at this one and a few of your other recent beauties ;) I like the "warning" :) Ian doesn't need pictures of ta-tas just yet. Hehe! He did catch a glimpse of one of Del's mermaids a while back when I was scrolling my friends page and was quite embarrassed!

Hehe, that sometimes happens when I base the painting on a photo - in this case the photo I based it on (it's a self-portrait) her hands aren't there because I took the photo of myself and I'm holding the mouse in my hand to click and take the picture, lol!!!!

She's quite breathtaking, quite a real mermaid...you'd be surprised at how many pictures there are out there that are quite definitely not mermaids, just people wanting to look at nudity.
This painting is beautiful:)

Thank you!!!!

Ah no, I just use water to thin my acrylics. Basically I just do dozens upon dozens of thin little layers to get the smooth effect I like! They dry almost instantly, so it doesn't take as long as you might think, hehe. I've found, for my method, the fastest drying paint the better! Rather than mixing the colours on the canvas, I mix them on the palette first and than tweak the transparencies with water when I build up the layers - usually starting with more opaque, darker shades and building up to lighter colours, with a finish of a transparent colour (usually modulating in hue depending on the surrounding colours). Not nearly as fancy as it sounds, but it works well for me!
