Another project finished, this time the Lady of the Lake from Big Child Creatives. I enjoyed painting her alot, especially the skin went so fast and easy. The water however was something I struggled alot with. In the end it does not look like realistic water at all, but it turned out ok and hopefully doesn't look too much out of place compared to her :)

    This is a beautiful rendition of this figure, Miriam. I like how you put her face and skin into focus by your color choices. I can see the fun and joy you had in creating it. Oh yes, water is a pain to paint convincing as it is material that is clear and usually has no color. You did ok here and I think it could get better in future projects when you look at oil paintings from art history on how painter’s tackled the trickery that is water painting. I think most of it works with the reflective surface that water has. Means, a lot of environmental influances in the water. Overall a beautiful project, Miriam. Keep on happy painting!

      Thank you so much Roman, that means alot to me!
      I’m definitely going to keep studying, reflections of the environment are something that still baffle me on any surface so it’s an ongoing challenge to learn more :)

    water is not an element that can be easily represented, because it is transparent, bight and the environment influences water more than other materials. It needs much study and observation. Don’t worry about not being able to give it a more realistic appearance, as I say Isn’t easy to do it. Either way, I see the effort and interest you’ve put into solving this challenge. Congratulations on the result.

      Thank you for your kind words Pepa! I definitely need to learn and study more, but that just makes the whole journey fun :)

    I like how the skin contrasts with the rest of the figure. The bright light reflected on her, and the cooler and colder tones as you go down create a nice piece. It looks like a very hard figure to paint, and you did the sculpt justice!

      Thank you! She was challenging, but I do like a challenge now and then so it was alot of fun.
