Well this time it's not some clouds that I took a picture of. I started and finished the newest painting in my transition series today in about 45 minutes, counting time to let it dry. I had the idea to paint a phoenix, and the colors were actually inspired by a phoenix painting that my ex boyfriend's dad did. Anyway, here it is.
I wanted it to appear firey and as though it's rising out of the darkness. Personally I wish it had came out looking less like a seagull, but I'm happy with it. It looks good in the picture, but even better in person. I just picked up a canvas today and started making some pencil sketches on it after I painted in the background. The next thing I knew I had a phoenix in no time. It's definitely one of the fastest paintings I've ever done, but I guess the fast pace matched the movement in the picture. I have several others in the works right now, so I'll be posting them up as I complete them.
