New Alice in Wonderland painting!!!! [Jul. 21st, 2004|10:24 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've finished the latest in my Alice in Wonderland series - "Alice and the Footmen"!!! It features Alice who has just been accosted by two of the Queen's messengers - footmen in full livery and powdered wigs. However - they are very unusual footmen: one is a frog, and the other a fish! If you look in the back, you can see a portrait of a white rabbit hanging on the wall......

You can see her here:

"Alice and the Footmen"


Enjoy!!!

I am so drained right now - I've been painting solidly for about 14 hours or something - I need food! I've got a pot of lentils on the stove and it smells really good.... I'm going to catch up with my email and LJ tomorrow - I'm beat!!! G'night!

Thank you Justine! Wow! As soon as I posted the link, she was gone! I'm glad to see her go to a happy home - and the winner has some of my other Alice paintings too, so she'll be in good company =)

Thank you, Bonnie! I had a lot of fun painting her - I always love pictures of frogs dressed in human clothing for some reason (like Mr. Toad, hehe!). I might try to work some more clothed-froggies into future paintings- that was too much fun!

Thank you!!!! >^___^<

The whole painting is almost entirely white paint - I just used the tiniest touches of colour in there - very different than my usual high-contrast darker paintings, but I love it!
