Hi :wave: this is a mid-sized composition (imaginary scene/light - except the figure, which was referenced), approx. 29" x 21", painted on Canson acrylic paper.

Palette comprised of three blues (prussian, cerulean, and ultramarine), umbers (burnt and raw), yellow ocher, a little scarlet lake, and titanium white.

Thanks so much for looking!

LOVE It Roy!!:clap:
Fabulous WIP too, I enjoyed seeing your steps. the blueish/purple figure remided me of the movie Avatar.

Very well done!!:thumbsup:

A lot of thought went into this. Considering it is imaginary you have done a terrific job with the lighting. Well done :clap:

Ditto to what Jayde said above about the lighting. Thanks for showing your work in progress.

Well done! Such a good job on the woman - not an easy task at all!

Thank you so much, kindly people :) For commenting, and to all those who have looked in.

@ Kathie - Ahh yes, Neytiri of Avatar. I enjoyed the stunning visuals in that movie. Rather than glazing the bluish sky tone of dusk on her skin at a later stage, I thought I'd first paint it as an undertone, and then paint the lighter flesh tone (scarlet lake, cerulean blue, titanium white) over it.

@ Jayde - I'm so glad you noticed the lighting scheme. It was not so much of thinking as holding on to the thought i.e. the mental image... which mainly constituted the effort. Nevertheless, it did change somewhat with time (I painted it as hurriedly as I could, over a period of two days)... as is evident in the w.i.p of the winged 'vision'.

@ Luv - it was my distinct pleasure and honor re: sharing the w.i.p. :)

@ Gayle - thanks so much! I'm currently suffering from bad brush syndrome, lol! Which means I'm hugely dissatisfied with the ones I'm using and is looking for a better (but not too expensive) option. I believe the brushes have restricted my work on the woman.
