Hello. I have to admit, I'm quite nervous about posting. This is my first painting, done with a small set gifted to me. My artsy side tends to lay in the direction of paper & fabric, as the only painting I have ever done is the barn fence and walls.
However, I couldn't get this image out of my head every time I watched a game. So, I tried. The finished piece measures 4"x4". This pic was taken before the logo was added to the glove. I will admit I didn't use wc for that as the space measured only 1/8" and it required the NFL logo and the word EQUIPMENT so I used a .03 Copic Multiliner to write that. I just happened to forget to photo the final before mailing the painting to the player.
I am thoroughly enjoying the medium and find myself drawn to morning landscapes, no matter that the sketch of my next attempt is looking at the face inside a football helmet! Frankly, the idea of attempting a skin tone in shadows frightens me. Hopefully the football angle will be out of my system for a bit after the season is truly over...but I'll bet I return from the ProBowl with more football pics to choose from than Hawaiian sunrises!
Ms Boysen, thank you for a site to share our works. It is greatly appreciated!
