YES….I’ve been gone awhile….but I’m back and I have lots to share.
My hubby and I welcomed our beautiful grandson into the world on September 7th…..Max Tiberius Goode. Feeling so very blessed! His Mom and Dad had decided on a “Lion King” theme for his nursery so I have been hard at work creating a very special painting for Max. Being mindful of copyright laws, let me say that this was done as a gift for my grandson and I did not directly ‘copy’ any specific artwork…but I certainly used the characters as my inspiration of this “family portrait”.
This painting was done on a 24″ by 36″ cradled ampersand gessobord with Golden fluid Matt acrylics. I took a few photos along my ‘painting journey’……..
Washing color and playing with values and techniques
Moving forward…adding more details and textures
Finished adoring Mom and Dad
Completed “Family Portrait”
Signed by “GiGi”, of course!
and Baby Max approved!
I’ve also finished a watercolor painting, “Sparrow and Flowers”
This is a great beginning watercolor painting and I am working on the ‘how to’ videos for the “GoodeStudio Classroom”.
