The Lineart on a Canvas Panel for My Spider Painting...



Here is the lineart on the canvas panel for my spider painting.  It has diverged a bit from my initial sketch, Alex at The Strange Art of Ledante suggested that I make the limbs a bit different and gave me some help.  He says there's a point at which you may want to move away from the reference to make a stronger painting and as he tends to be right with great frequency about art related matters, I went with his suggestions...

I had to laugh as I was looking at your post (as Rose sat beside me) she said, "spider, that's a spider, I like it." LOL
So I go with what she said, I like your spider too, Lisa.

Happy Weekend to you.

We got snow today and here I thought 'spring had sprung'
Our weather is Colorado goes like this, 'wait a minute as it will change.'

Thank you kindly! I'm not typically afraid of spiders, but I do put them outside, I'm definitely not a fan of them crawling on me!
