New Work in Progress: Turtle Island Painting 6

Progress is going slow now. I'm doing a lot more staring at the painting and then doing a little work to fix what I don't like. Here is where I am right now.

To see the step by step photos of my progress and some of the thinking behind it,

New Work in Progress: Turtle Island Painting 3


I had to stare it down for a while but I think I have it figured out now. 
This is where I am tonight.

This one has been battling me from the beginning but I think I have it figured out now.

New Work in Progress: Turtle Island Painting 2

I did some more painting yesterday. This one is fighting me all the way. I like it more today than I did last night even though I haven't done anything to it. Here it is in all its glory.

This one will have to be a mixed media painting I think, but who knows I could still change my mind.

New Work in Progress: Turtle Island Painting

One of my favorite digital art pieces is my Iroquois Creation Story. I have always loved this piece so I decided I would do a couple paintings based on it. The first I started today using acrylic ink and watercolor on Yupo paper. Then I think I will do a large oil painting. We'll see how that goes. :)

Here is the painting as it sits right now.

Jaguar New Painting Work in Progress FINISHED!

I completed my painting yesterday and posted it on my website.

Jaguar Watercolor

 

 

Yesterday I continued working on his spots and stripes.


I finished up the spots and stripes and then I decided to make the overall painting larger.
 I like the way the edges fade away. I was originally going to frame 
it in an 11"x14" mat but now I will cut the opening larger.

 

Here is the final painting. I painted in some whiskers and detailed the hairs with a colored pencil. 
I also lifted some highlights with water and a still brush. 

I am very happy with the results and can't wait to do another one this way.
