Color Two of The Red Barn

Posted by Debbie Beukema. Comments Off

having a blast carving out the surface plane, adjusting color, and controlling value. Painting is half analytical and half going with the flow. Then tomorrow I begin the underpaintings on a couple new commissions and finish a custom digital. Full and fun.

OK. Finally on Ebay. Prices start at 99 cents. If you feel like it, check it out and let me know if I basically listed stuff right. I have a feeling that spazzing may have occurred.

Updated Doggy Painting, A Nice Kittay Custom Digital, and Other News

Posted by Debbie Beukema. Comments Off

Been working on the commission a Lunacy of Cattledogs. I’m almost there. Probably about 2 more sessions, the first of which I hope to get to by Wednesday. I worked on all the dogs, bringing them up to about 75% done. Next I’ll work on the ground, and when that’s done, I finish with detail work.

Also had a commission for a Custom Digital of a very lovely kittay. it’s not designed onto any items yet.

And in other news: Sold the Red Barn. Will also be working on color two of the Red Barn this week. (Yes, another painting sold before it’s finished. Cause that’s the was we roll here at DBArtworks.) And I start 2 commission in the next 2 weeks. Both very large.
