Princess of Tides Revealed!

Hello my fellow bloggers and followers!  Well, she's finally finished!  I will probably add a few more details but for now she is done.  I will be posting her on the Willowing Ning site as well for Tam's M3 class.  I know I've been seriously behind, heck, the class is over now and I still haven't started the fairy and unicorn painting(s)!


  The Princess of Tides

The lighting was horrible but I did the best I could.  She is much better "in person".


Here is a shot of her with a little less light shining on the metallics and mica flakes.

I think I'm going to be taking a break from these more detailed paintings and do some doodling and fun paint splashing in the studio next.  I still haven't put my recycled journal together yet so I will probably work a little on that too.

I will be making my short trip to So. California for my Dr.'s appts. in April and I am planning to do some gorilla art and possibly some graffiti as well.  Shhh, it's a secret - more on that later!

I will be posting again this weekend so meantime keep that pencil, pen, marker, brush or glue stick moving!

Forever in art, Jessica

Beautiful Jess! I love the shine - and you seem to have achieved it with the moonshine in her hair, not just with the mica tail. And actually my favourite part of her tail is the end which I think is subtly gorgeous.

She's amazing... I totally know what you mean about taking a break from detailed paintings and wanting to splash paint around. Gorilla art and Graffiti, too fun.

She is truly wonderful! Her hair reminds me of the Botticelli venus painting.

Worth the wait Jessica. The tail is particularly beautiful and all that golden hair.... she's just lovely! I haven't done my unicorn yet either - don't worry!! I did finally manage a 'sort of' fairy this week though.

And let me tell you - this work is absolutely stunning. So beautiful and so elegant! I LOVE her hair and the metallics within it and the gorgeous pink tail and those mica flakes and her face is absolutely stunning. I think that the details you incorporate into your work is amazing.
