Illustration Friday- Wide
I originally did this just for Monday Artday's challenge of Japanese monster. But it works for Illustration Friday...and I only had time to do one oil painting this week. Alas, here is the wide beast confronted by a curious little puppy!
It is oil on a background of tape and gel medium on board. I wanted to try using a texture in the background. It looks pretty neat! And I felt like the painting went faster for some reason.
Oh...and yes, I have changed the background color of my blog...it seems I use a lot of blue in my paintings, and I feel like they often blend into the blue background I had chosen. I think white is better to show work against!
