DOE is the last painting I did in 2015, and she is here to wish you a wonderful, lovely, prosperous and creative New Year!
DOE, Acrylic on Canvas, 30″ x 24″
She is the oldest of two fae sisters who lives in the woods and loves animals, especially sweet little fawns who have strayed away from their mothers. She gently brings them back to their mother’s side.

Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
I am still working on my painting, “DOE.” but I thought I would share a few pictures of my progress.
Here is the final sketch from my sketchbook. It is 8″ x 10″.
Here is my sketch enlarged on a copy machine and pieced together. I wanted to paint this one pretty big, so I bought a 24″ x 30″ gallery wrapped canvas.
Here is the canvas with the last coat of tinted gesso. I was thinking I wanted to go with a lighter background, but you will see that I changed my mind…
And here is the painting with the main subjects blocked in.
Now I started feeling the Fall weather and began getting some darker shades worked into the painting. I always rotate my canvas around on my easel when I am painting certain parts. I especially like to paint the tips of my hair sideways. Anybody else do this when they paint or draw?
Here is the whole painting sideways on my easel. I darkened up the background and added texture that gave me the feeling of bark on a tree.
And here it is, right side up with the my progress, so far.
Hope you have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
