in progress: ignis aeris 5


ready for a bit more of my beloved The Waterman tryptich? here’s the underpainting:

it’s amazing how I get energized when working with warm colors. I love all tones of blue and purples, but working with reds and oranges really make my day. I love how their pigments mix well and how they pop out the board.

I really like the way the lion skin came out. I think the abstraction fit well. it made me think about creating another piece using a lion as a focus and the same horizontal abstracts.

planning another tryptich for a near future. not that huge, though. it’s a lot of work. my pieces are sort of independent from each other, so i don’t get bored working on the same elements all the time. I may do something more simple next time, on smaller panels.
