For details Tuesday today I have an image of Princess Belles background. Deciding upon a painting was truly an evolution. I originally had a warm background before deciding to settle on a blue contrasting background. Blue and Yellow will look absolutely beautiful together. To obtain this texture I used two colors of blue, a spray bottle, and a sea sponge. Before the second layer of paint dried I sprayed water onto the canvas. Then used a dry sponge to lift some of the acrylic color. This technique is a defiant must if you haven't tried it already.

Winter Butterfly Dreams is a special work of art I'm creating for a themed art show. Participating artists had to select a tale from the provided stories; and give imagery to the tale. My chosen story was a butterfly landed on my fathers nose. I'm still figuring out the nose part I really want to give it more thought to execute the ideal I had in mind. I still have two remaining months to complete my three part series. Stay tuned for more progressions of this mini series, Disney Princesses, and Ocean Landscapes!
I wanted to share the most recent progress of princess Jasmine! Completing yet another painting only adds to the wonderful collection for princesses! I can't wait to start painting Belle.
For the past three days I've been stressing about side project. I've fought myself during every decision. From concepts ideas, color tones, to cropping in order to make the most effective work of art. As a result of rushing through this project I made a crucial artistic error. At the last minute I decided to add newspapers into the background. Which is only a problem when you move from working in acrylic to oil. Acrylic can never be painted over oil so I had to look for alternatives to add the paper into the background without affecting the oil surface. I begin using cold wax medium which worked slightly, but not as effective as acrylic adhesives. The wax medium is working for now but I will need to use an oil medium to lock in the paper from falling off in the future.
Out of curiosity I wanted to know if you, my audience would like me to begin commissioning artworks. I've never thought about commissioning artworks, but I'm very open to the idea of a new adventure! To participate leave your answer in the poll below.

With the completion of the Jasmine paining approaching fast I began working on color concepts for Belle! This has been a process in its own. I contemplated warm backgrounds to cool backgrounds before I finally decided upon a warm blue gradient to represent the night sky! The mix of the tinted yellow with a variant of blues in the background will be absolutely beautiful! A blue color scheme will only add to the princess collection.

Today I have a photo of all four of my Disney paintings! My best friend asked me yesterday do you have a photo of all of your paintings. That question alone lead to me taking one to show the series together thus far. All four paintings really look exceptional together! I can't wait to officially add a completed Jasmine and Belle painting!
Happy Tuesday Everyone,
For details Tuesday I have a snippet from my Jasmine painting. This week I've been working on rendering the flesh tones out in oil. Soon I will begin working on perfecting the shape of the hands then continue with tightening other things up . Technically this is only my third week working on jasmine but its coming along. Working on this painting is so fun its refreshing to have a different set of colors, texture and ethnic subject to paint. Jasmine will definitely only add to the series just as Belle will.
