29 faces - Elven Queen



As I predicted, I am having a hard time keeping up with 29 faces.
For my 7th face, Elven Queen, I decided to go big and picked up a canvas.
As with the other faces I haven't painted on canvas in over 20 years,
and I experimented with glitter paint for the first time ever.
Then some life stuff happened and it's still not finished.






I want to fix her ears, the shading of the circlet and add some more "flames",
but I thought posting a work in progress was better than nothing
after more than a week of silence in what is supposed to be a daily challenge...









Going with the purple theme - and because tomorrow is Valentine's
- this was my gift to myself today, little purple rose lights.
(For any Swedes out there: they are only 29 kr at Rusta.)


 Happy Valentine's!

  1. It looks fantastic! Don't worry about keeping up with the challenge -- just keep creating! It'll knock the cobwebs out of your creative system. I started to do the drawing "prompt" books and really find that they are helping.

  10. Happy Valentine's! ♥ xo

    I totally get the whole "life stuff happened". (I'm feeling totally overwhelmed right now too.) Please don't beat yourself up for not being able to keep up with a daily challenge. Your wip is utterly splendid and something to be pleased and proud of. ♥ ♥ ♥

      Thank you for your kind words, though I don't know what 'wip' is..?

      Radera
    2. Sorry, lovely! "wip" was for "work in progress". :)

    1. Thank you on all accounts, Lexa!
      The sale of the store is certainly a load off.

  12. Oh, I love the glittery effect! ^^ With this cold color chart it looks a little like a vampire, but it's really pretty.

    Svar
    1. I wanted her to look a bit cold, so I guess I was successful :)

      Radera
  13. Your "Elven Queen" is a beauty. I love the solemnity in her eyes, and the purple of her world... And, as you might be predicting, I completely adore the color of the flames.

    Thank you for the flowers. May the brighten your day, too. ;-)

    1. Thank you, dear Magaly! I had a feeling you would like those flames, that tube of glittery red paint looks a bit like distilled Magaly magic ;)

    1. Thank you! But I'm not sure about the ears being all dark like that...

      Radera
  16. Those rose lights are going to be perfect draped around the canvas after you hang her up on the wall, and they might need a bit of glitter too! She's beautiful Ms. Misantropia! :)

    1. Thank you! It has taken me decades to warm up to fantasy in games and art, and I still don't like it in book form....

      Radera
  18. Wow, du är minsann en duktig målare :D jättefint med tiaran också!

    SvaraRadera
  19. I wonder how those rose lights look hung up, they match the painting perfectly with the colors.

    1. I still haven't found a place for them!
