The Origin of Water Snakes (2)


I’m not sure if it’s totally done yet, but it’s definitely almost done. As I mentioned in the first entry, this is a mix of standard acrylics and metallic paints as well, on a 24″x48″ canvas. I think next I’m going to finish off the turtle painting because my “real” work should finally be firing up again and I have months of catch-up to do which will make me quite swamped (which is a wonderful thing).

I took this picture outside in overcast weather so I think it’s quite accurate in terms of colour, but still it looks much better in person I think.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
