I decided to do this because I thought it would best suit the the look of the landscape. So here I've decid...

Re: Next up: Ophelia

After the drawing was finished (about sixty hours in seven days) I took a photo of it with my DSRL. That image was then printed out the same size of the drawing (26x28).

Re: Begining: Tristan & Isolde

Just a little tweaking left but for all intents and purposes this is done. I gave myself a deadline of mid to late September and finish about two weeks earlier, but I was putting in ten to twelve hour days. Now on to the next painting. Thanks to all who looked.

Begining: Tristan & Isolde

Beginning work on the painting "Tristan & Isolde." Here I'm laying in the tonal values. Once that's complete I'll be glazing colors over in thin layers until I build up to the finished painting.
