I have been working on this large 6 foot painting for the past few months. I am still far from finishing it, but I thought I would share a few photo’s of my process and how this painting is progressing.
The canvas was so large, it wouldn’t fit on my easel, so I hung it on the wall. I put paper behind the painting to protect my wall as I am a very messy artist! 🙂
I am now blocking in all the little fairies and sprites that the fairy is protecting under her cape.
I went back and re-worked some of the background and trees.
An angled view…
The little ones are starting to look like fairies and sprites! 🙂 I am enjoying creating all of their little faces and personalities.
I still have a lot more to paint. My goal is to finish by the end of the year. That gives me about two more months. I have been working on smaller paintings while I am creating this one, and will probably continue with that schedule.
I hope you are enjoying this fall weather and have a Happy Halloween!
Have a wonderful, creative, and joyful day, Janell
