11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Colder Weather - Watercolour Painting on: February 07, 2014 09:02:34 AM
Thank you both for your comments Cheesy

stillatthetop, I did consider making prints of this piece! I've never made prints from my artwork before so I don't even know where to get started Huh

I used a photograph that I took of a good friend of mine as the subject for this painting. She actually has that tattoo on her shoulder and I liked how it contrasted with the drapery and emotion in the photograph... I thought that it added an edgy touch to the image. Her tattoo is inspired by the song "Bad Fish" by Sublime.

I was also lucky in that her hands weren't showing in the original photo! Tongue

"You got a gypsy soul to blame and you were born for leavin."

This painting is a recreation of a photo I took of a good friend of mine that I absolutely LOVE! It's my third attempt at using watercolours and is just on paper.

I wanted to challenge my artistic abilities with this piece so I gave myself a limited timeline. I hoped that by doing this I wouldn't pay so much attention to minor details and concentrate more on capturing the emotion of the photograph. It ended up taking me about 3 and a half hours to finish. All in all, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

C&C appreciated Smiley

I crafted the entire day today and finished my large item Smiley It involved a lot of fiddling around, cutting, and re-cutting, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out in the end!!
