On the Wings Of Change

First of all: Yes, I’m taking my painting seriously. And I have no plans getting tired of it any time soon, so stay calm.

Secondly, what’s about the title of this post you’re currently reading?

Acrylic painting of a dragon flying in the moonlight, burning town in the background and a castle on a hill nearby

Well, it could of course describe the flying dragon, having changed the fate of the town behind him … Or it could describe me, and that I’m taking my painting seriously, wanting to continue with it after my two paintings so far.

Or – of course – both.

As should be apparent from the image above, I’ve now finished my second acrylic painting. Sure, there are always things I could do better, or more detailed, but for now I’m really happy with the result. I’d rather try to get better at those tiny details and other things I can do better by painting new motives – it’ll be more motivating, too that way, and I can see the progress as time and paintings go by. Well, at least I’m optimistic enough to think I’ll be making progress 😉

So, am I ready to take on my third painting? What will it be?

I’m not completely sure yet. I do have my figure, Dionaea, and I want to paint that one, too. Will it be my next project, or will I try another motive first? You’ll have to wait and see, just like me.

In the World Of Dragons

So, a fantasy motive, right? With a castle, and a flying dragon. Bathing in the moonlight. That should be my next painting. And as previously mentioned, I’ve started on it.

Of course, I can’t just pop outside and take a photo with my camera to have something to paint after. After all, there’s not exactly plentiful of castles around here …

But I don’t paint it completely freehand, either. I made a quick little mashup in Photoshop so that I have a motive to paint after. So while I don’t have a painting to show yet, I can at least show the photoshopped version. It will be exciting to see how close I get it. (It certainly won’t be identical.)
