Painting!!! [May. 17th, 2004|01:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm painting!!! I'm sketching out the bare bones of a huge (well, 16"x20" - big for me!) painting with lots and lots of characters, kind of like "Earth Faeries" or "Green Goddess", etc.

There's going to be a self-portrait in there, and at least one or two of the models who submitted photos to me, and some new original faces as well.... And maybe a toad ;)

This one is going to be in neutral earth tones, with sage-y green, burnt sienna, ochres, etc.

You can watch me HERE!!!

Hehe!!! Thanks for watching! I'm going to try to pop in front of the camera more often, it's fun! I have a lot of long-distance friends and family members who watch too, so that way they can see my silly face from time to time =)

Good luck. Working on big pieces of paper gives you more freedom, it just takes getting use too. It's actaully more fun than small papers.

Thank you!!!

Oh - that's from last year sometime (probably before you knew me!) - I always rather liked that one - it took a couple of days to paint, but it was so intricate!

Hi there ^_^

I just wanted to say that you are an astounding artist, I really admire your amazing fantasy work.

Your attention to detail and eye for composition is stunning.

Feel free to message me on my LJ or add me to friends if you want to chat or anything ^_^ also feel free to brush this off as a stalker post... hehe.

Hehe thanks. Not many artists comment back on LJ. So many of them are so pretentious! It's nice to find someone who's down to earth ^_^

My brother-in-law got a webcam, but I won't send you a picture till I get your approval I don't want to bother you when your painting. It would be cool to see each other. But my brother-in-law has to teach me how to work it.:)
