I haven't ever joined a paid for class before...but One Little House's "Paint What You See" class just called out to me, and this is the piece I have created from this months class.
I call it "Greek Tragedy"
(8x12 mixed media on 140lb watercolour paper)
I am posting minimal pics as it seems rude to give away the entire process from a paid for class, especially when the person is only charging to cover the costs of the site.
The title comes partly from the list of words I circled in one of the base layers...Knife/blood/kill/natural prey/ecological...I know, too much Vampire tv :D
This is the finished background base after all the layers were applied(yes you can steal it to use if you like, just don't mass print off to sell, that would be rude and bring down a nasty curse :D)
I then turned the piece as instructed til an image showed itself, and pencilled it in...
before over-painting with acrylics and craft paint
The "greek" bit of the title is because while painting(and when complete) it reminded me of the murals painted on ancient plaster walls depicting some huge battle or disaster, with people looking on, their faces frozen in horror and disbelief for all time.
Enjoy :D XXX
