Day 6 of the painting challenge! Today’s painting was a little more involved. I sized up to a 5″ x 7″ – I find it’s a much more comfortable size to work at as everything isn’t tiny, tiny so it’s easier to make nice details, which I love! Despite of that I’ll continue with miniature paintings for the majority of the month as the larger size also means it’s much more time consuming.
This painting depicts Mock-Turtle, a well known character from Alice in Wonderland who is described as a mix between a cow and a turtle. The painting comes ready to hang in a beautiful 10,5″ x 8,5″ frame. It is painted in gouache on canvas paper and measures 5″ x 7″.
The painting is available for purchase. Just click the button below.
The painting I am working on today is slightly larger. It’s a 5″x7″ – I’m considering calling it: Why noone came to tea at the bottom of the sea. The star is poor little Mock-turtle. I’m not sure I can have it done by 3pm though, so I may post one of my buffer pieces today and put this up tomorrow. #30in30artchallenge #sketching #drawing #aliceinwonderland #mockturtle #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #sketches
I worked out the sketch of Mock-turtle a little more in detail. Now it’s time to begin painting. Here he is shown with the frame he’ll go in once finished. #30in30artchallenge #mockturtle #aliceinwonderland #drawing #sketches #sketching #teadrawing #artistsoninstagram #instaartist #workinprogress A photo posted by Kiri Østergaard Leonard (@kirileonard) on
The painting is coming along, unfortunately the colors have become too similar to the first planned frame so I will have to find another frame. #painting #mockturtle #aliceinwonderland #workinprogress #gouache #artistsoninstagram A photo posted by Kiri Østergaard Leonard (@kirileonard) on
