Work in Progress Big Eye Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead Painting + Egyptian Fairy Website Update...



Here is a work in progress view of my big eye Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead painting.  I'm pretty much happy with the eyes, but I have more work to do on her neck and shoulders.  Even when I've worked with the shading a bit, I'm not sure if she needs something more there; maybe a bit of her blouse, a necklace, possibly a tatttoo.  Or the possibility exists that when I've entirely finished with the rest of the painting, she may not need anything at all, so I'll wait until later to decide for certain.  I can put her into photoshop and pre visualize the options when I'm further along...  


I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:


Blood of the Nile Original Painting SOLD
Open Edition 8"x10" Giclee Prints & Limited Edition Giclee ACEO Prints Here

Born of Egypt, this big eye fairy has exotic eye make up and a beautiful Ankh.  Her wings are translucent and beautiful, she has a dreamlike surrealist quality.  I sold the original, but I do have this piece available as prints and ACEOs!

Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!

Love your Blood of the Nile painting! No wonder it's sold .... Love seeing how other artists create. Very interesting to see that you start with the eyes. With me the eyes are usually the last thing I paint ...
