I’m trying something a little different with this piece. For one, the background sky is not my usual gradient of blues and maybe some wispy clouds, but a cloudy, stormy backdrop based on an old photo I took. I think I may continue with this method to add a little more complexity and realism to my skies.
Latest work in progress detail.
Tons of detail in this one, so many lines I’m seeing them in my mind all day long! The pattern in the landscape is based on the veins in a leaf.
Here are a couple shots at the very beginning stages of this new painting (12” x 16”). I just finished up with the commissioned piece so its time to get going on the next one.
Finishing up the final element of this piece.
Aside from a few finishing touches I think this spherical element is about the last major piece of the puzzle for this commissioned painting. Still a lot of work to do on the “bubbles” and I plan to fill some of those bubbles with various biological forms, but I’m getting there!
Working on some details such as floating lupine leaves and slightly deconstructed orchid flower. My clients for this commission live in Colorado so many of the elements of this painting are based on the local scenery and flora. Another new component to the piece is the yellow glacier lily at the top left (inspired by, anyway). A few more elements to go but its getting there!
