|"The Lady Guinevere"|
Acrylics and collaged papers on 20x24" stretched canvas.
I took some macro pics to show up close some of the details, which you can click here to view on flickr. I do wish that I had taken more pictures of her at different stages during the creative process (like the underpainting in paynes gray & titanium white), but was so into the working at that point that I didn't even think to stop. Also, it was night-time and I was working by lamp-light with not the greatest lighting for taking pics at that point anyways, so it's probably just as well. I did get one though, here:
I do plan to take more pics during the creating process on the next one though (which I've already started)!
Here's the illustration that inspired my painting, from a book we have here at home, which you can see online here. Obviously I made quite a few changes, and would have included more (like the jousting knights in the background) had I'd started with a larger canvas, but I'm fairly pleased with her as the first piece I've done in a long time. Honestly, it just feels so good to be engaged and working creatively with my hands in this manner again. I'm very excited about adding papers to my pallet too.
