Long time ago in a land far, far away, my Husband went to Japan. While there, took some photos of the majestic Castles. Back when I lived in NW Oregon, I decided to give this a try. However, the move interrupted my endeavors.
Had the background... basics of a background started but nothing else. It still needs work, but will wait until I Ink in the castle. The cats are adjusting to my DS going back to college and would not let me work in my little studio to finish up the Bell P 59. So I decided to drag this out and put some ink to paper. That tiny bit of ink work above, took an hour. Detail is hard to see at this scale but in future WIP's, I will add a close up of the detail.
Very slowly moving along with this painting. Worked on the bottom stripes of the flag, with shadowing and some of the fine detail of this Fighter's underbelly. Still have the wings to finish up and need to tone down the the lower red stripes. I know with the size of the photos I put up, it is hard to see all the fine detail. Sadly, as you know in previous posts, many people have taken to stealing my Art. Once it is completed and up in my Fine Art Galleries, you will be able to see a larger copy of it.
Nice cool, rainy morning, perfect time to work on my Bell Fighter. At this point, I am adding more shading to the under-body and added the top color to the lower stripes of the flag. The stripes look a bit darker than the upper stripes, however, they were still wet when I took this photo. As they dry, the color will calm down.
I bought two large mugs from Cafe Press, for long term testing. The print quality on "Hopeful" above and Urban Jungle are beautifully done. The roundness of the mug and where I placed my Art of Hopeful, makes it stand out. If you are interesting in purchasing a use-able work of Art with Hopeful on it, please check out... CAFE PRESS
