New painting!!!!!! [Aug. 12th, 2004|09:44 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ah - I love how she turned out!

Here she is:

"Fairy Queen Titania"

Lol, and it has nothing to do with the fact that we just watched "A Midsummer Night's Dream"..... ;)

I was going to spend the rest of the night answering emails and replying to LJ comments, but I'm tired and hungry. I'm going to fix dinner and see if Matt needs help packaging up tomorrow's orders! If you're waiting for a response or email from me, I'll get to it tomorrow - thank you for your patience =)

!!!!!! She is so PERFECT to be Titania!!!!!!! Her hair and makeup is just so amazing.

And I love, LOVE the leaves on her body. I've always wanted to do a piece with leaves on a body just like that.

She looks so royal.

Thank you!!! I use myself as a model a lot, so it's fun to make these little morphs of the photo-to-painting transformation!

Thank you Kimbearly! She's one of my favourites too!!! I might try to do some more kind of like her in the future - she was fun to paint - all of the shimmering sparkles.....

painting cam

i periodically checked the painting cam yesterday to watch the development of this piece. at one point i cropped the window size and moved [it] into the top left hand corner of my screen while i worked on various bits of this and that. my husband would chuckle softly to himself when i would suddenly exclaim, "oh! there's her hand now! she's painting the highlights on a hair section!" a rather comical enthusiasm some might say but i find that observation of the process of creation, being there in the moment, to be an inspirational journey.

i have silently followed the development of your work for the past while and felt compelled to say, "thank you." your art brings a smile to my lips and often brightens my day.

Re: painting cam

Thank you!!! I love painting "live on camera" - it makes me kind of feel like I have friends with me when I'm alone or something =) It makes me happy to know that people appreciate what I'm doing, and that I'm any kind of inspiration =)

Very beautiful!!! I especially love your blondes :) Ever painted Puck? My sister did an amazing job as Puck in her high school production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". I think the characters would make a wonderful series!

Believe it or not, I don't think I've ever drawn/painted Puck before! When I was a little girl I think I probably copied Brian Froud's out of the Faeries book, lol, but other than that I've never done him. I think I should - I've always liked A Midsummer Night's Dream. When I was in school I did a painting of Titania & Bottom together - http://www.strangeling.com/titania.jpg - I'd like to do an "updated" version of that one someday too.....

All I can say is WOW-the colors are perfect and I absolutely love the expression on her face!
You just keep getting better and better-I can't wait for my commission to come in! :)

Awsome Jasmine! I really like this one, its a little different looking then your usual style, I like the more adult look of the character and all the colors. Very Awsome!
