Here's how it started out.
|First stain attempt|
|Same canvas, same pic, more wiping.|
|Final Stain updated|
|First attempt at color blocking|
|Still have no idea what I'm doing but it's fun!|
|Starting to pull in clouds.|
My photo reference didn't have any clouds that day, it was just a clump of trees, and I decided to go ahead and start using my imagination, so I started playing with sun and clouds.
|Photo reference in color|
|Photo reference black and white|
|Dark, but starting to come together.|
|Here's where we are now.|
My style is not realistic, obviously, I am staying true to the world of my fairies, but I am also working towards the glow - the beautiful light that happens as the sun sets and the fairies begin to dance. Will post the finished picture and can't wait to start another. With this first one I've learned so much!
All comments most welcome! Does it speak to you in any way?
