Work in progress of my latest painting: “Silver Spirit”. This is a re-do of a much older painting that I was not happy with. This is a huge painting, about 60 inches wide by 40 inches tall. Painted with acrylics on board. It is hard to tell from the picture, but I am using metallic paint, including silver, gold and pearl. When the light hits the painting just right, it really lights up!
The original painting underneath was something I had painted about 18 years ago, and had a lot of anatomical and proportional errors. I am hoping this newest iteration will be an improvement! The entire painting will be of a wolf standing on a cliff made of ice crystals, with lots of stars in the background. I basically painted the entire board black and started over again.
To the right is the original painting, done in 2001. It is an acrylic painting that I did on my bedroom wall. The painting itself has since been removed from the wall and mounted on wood. It will be very interesting to see a side-by-side comparison when it is complete!
