Flamingo so far..
I said earlier I would count the amount of hours on this project, and I have!
The picture on the left is the one I posted earlier, after 7 hours, so just after drawing out and blocking some of the colours. The picture below is after 48.5 hours! Still got a way to go!
I need to finish the detailing on the man, the body hair, the nipples, the hand detail.
The sky is still showing some of the grid still and the buidings are a little off in the verticals.
I also would like to revisit the water and put a but more into the beak and the seam creases..so..pretty much everything!
I'm not sure how much longer it will take me or what my total will be, but I have a frame waiting!
I might see if I can get it done by the end of the month and enter it into the SAA competition. I do love the colours in this one and the water reflections, it's been a good practice in painting water.
I have a few more paintings drawn out and grided, and have plenty to do and after the 31st I'm not going to enter any more competitions till next year. I have plenty of other projects to do, and I might have a few digital commissions in the pipeline! Busy busy!
It is hard fitting all of this in with working and the kids, but I'm really enjoying it, and I always find myself something to do!!
