This painting was… hard. It was too big in my head to see, and I didn’t know how to do what I knew needed to be done. I was just about ready to give up on it when it snapped into place with one of those resounding mental clicks you don’t get too often, and from there it just flowed.
So Chris Rahn very graciously just answered an email I sent him, and gave me some really good critique and some equally really encouraging/flattering compliments (even if I don’t really believe him - “kind of a Donato vibe starting to happen”, hahaha, sure, but thank you all the same~).
Here’s some of his beautiful art. One day I will have stared at these long enough to learn how to color palette/compose/paint!
