I finished a painting and wanted to share it:
The Specimen Collector
Original acrylic painting by Chelsea Rose
...I had a lot of fun painting and documenting the creative process with this piece:
The creative process began as a goofy pencil drawing made one rainy day at work while on lunch.
I then took the drawing home and drew out the concept on a stretched canvas.
Began adding the first rough color layers in the background and figure/flowers.
Really started having fun with painting the trees and working on her dress design.
Here she was near completion next to my other current paintings in the works.
...So yes, shes all done. Now I'm just waiting for the paint to cure before gloss varnishing and then she shall be ready to be admired by the world!
In other news this weekend was one of those "don't want to leave the cozy bedroom" kind of days.
Thus, I setup my sketch box easel in the bedroom so that I could paint where it was warm while watching movies.
It was very nice. And I got a good bit of work done on my painting...she is almost finished!
I also am SUPER excited about how well my Kickstarter.com "Earth Goddess" fundraising project is going!
Only 3 days left and I have raised $930...which means I need to raise just $70 more to meet my goal of $1000. We can do it! Please donate if you can. The support will be greatly appreciated. Keep the "Earth Goddess" body art photography series alive!
Much Love and Light,
