Portrait


These two figures appeared in a previous post, back when I was just making collages and hadn't started painting again.
So since they were crammed into my collage book, unseen and neglected, I decided to revive them into an acrylic painting.


Acrylic paint and ink on an 8x10 inch board.

So glad you revived these two, they deserved to be seen! Love her blue skin and her outfit ~ she is fascinatingly mysterious.

I love how they stand together as a pair, sharing the same scarf in a magical world. Beautiful colors!

Your characters - both humanoid and animal - are always so intriquing! I love that you put these creatures together in such intimate coexistence; even without the multiple planets or moons in the sky, it creates an other worldly feeling. My favorite part of theis painting is the sky (even though I really love the figures). It has a wonderful undulating movement a if it flows arounf the spheres. Your work is always so cool!

Love your characters, and your work, always like dreamscapes that open your eyes to an other world.

What a gorgeous fantasy image. Again, your colors are arresting. You've such a good sense for vibrancy! How do you get the dark sky so smooth at the edges of the foreground figures? I tried watercolor for the first time this past week and had a dark sky like this; however, I couldn't get the color tone even at the edges of the figures in the foreground. Is it brush technique or do you use a mask of some sort?

What a dreamy sky and a dreamy scene. I like the scarves on both figures. The understated cigarette catches my eye... I guess as an ex-smoker who still feels the urge from time to time, even after 24 years.

Thanks for your comments on Blackie's portrait. Sorry you have loud neighbor dogs. I'm afraid Blackie can be loud from time to time. If we're not home by nightfall, the old guy has taken to howling. We don't go out much now. He's now deaf, so he can't hear himself, but he still feels deeply.
