hello everyone (: this is the finished large canvas painting i have been slaving over! i haven’t been very hardworking, so this took quite a long time- about a week. my feet are there as a rough reference (for size), but now i’m going over why i did that, because my feet are quite big (do you know the agony of hearing the salesperson saying ‘oh the biggest size we have is a 7’?). probably not a good representation.
i spray painted the background, to try something different. it turned out okay, but i had to make the paint extra opaque, and put an extra layer on most places, because the gold was showing through and muddy-ing up the light colours! but i guess it turned out just fine (: there are many parts in the painting where i purposely left little specks of gold, as you can see in the close-up below, because they look cunningly like gold leaf or something fancy like that. (:
finishing this was quite a feat, so i’m celebrating by framing the painting and putting it in a special place! also because if i don’t, it is going to be rolled up and chucked somewhere, knowing me. plus, i don’t really like the look of the plain canvas border around it.
if you have ideas, please suggest a next canvas painting for me to do, in the comments (: artist’s block gets to me sometimes. one day i want to call myself a real artist.
