Re: Fantasy Mural
Danielle, Arlene, Romi, Violet, Lucie, Loobyteacher, Lulu, Trafford... thank you all for your nice comments. I'm glad it is making the positive impression I was going for.
Yes Ozone, that is hair on the tail.
Thanks EP, lol. I had to get her out of the way for the final photo.
Dreamz, thank you. Yes, it's a time consuming process using small round brushes and lots of dabs and layers. Most of the bushes took 4 or 5 shades.
Linda, thanks. I did a lot of searching and ended up finding my reference on the last page of the lakes and ponds, etc section. The rocks right away made me think of a castle and it was pretty easy to follow the natural formation to create the towers.
Angela... LavenderSprout, that's really cute!
Michelle, thank you. Children's books have crossed my mind, but I would have to learn to paint faster.
C&C always welcome. Michelle
Every painting is a new adventure.
