WIP 5 - Enchanted Garden



Wip 5

Just a quick update on Enchanted Garden guys- all white parts will be greenery and flowers as well as most of that back wall, so hopefully this one will be done in the next few days too:)

NEW WORKS ON SALE



Pink Embrace




Between The Shadows


A COUPLE OF NEW WORKS ON SALE NOW IN MY-BLOG SHOP !!!
http://vesna-art-shop.blogspot.com/

One of the works is a work you guys a familiar with "Between the Shadows", but its now framed and ready to gooooo...but the other one is a study in pink "Pink Embrace". It is one of the many pastel sketches I have been doing as a study for my first Classical Nude...:), and this one looked too good to just discard and shove under my pile of sketches...so I framed it and is now available for purchase.
This sketch will probably be the one I use as the final, and be transferred onto a large canvas...my usual stuff...and that is to start very soon, as Enchanted Garden is nearly finished too.

Wip 4



Detail 1




Wip 3



WIP 2



WIP 1

I only just made a start on this one tonight, (there is a contest "My Secret Garden" on DA - http://karemelancholia.deviantart.com/journal/22691172/) and I thought I'll do this as my submission - also its the second WIP serias I'm going to share with you guys - this one as you can see is worked differently, no dead layers and no backround blockings...its thick lushes paint directly on canvas after brief sketch outline...its a little experiment I'm running for my self...WHY???
In the past two years I have been going back and forth between working in these two very different ways of painting...I want to decide which way I work better in, and compare the results in quality of the finished work in the end. That is where you lot will be asked to vote and give me your input as well.
I'm of to keep working for a few more hours on this, and then kleen up...you should see my pallett...what a mess...my brushed and my Oils hate me tonight :)
