Celtic Goddess :: Déesse celtique

A painting for a children’s story… or someone a tad older. I had the chance to be present when a live model and a few props accompanying her created a very gothic/celtic atmosphere — even halloweenesque? What I really enjoy about this class is that Marc Taro Holmes is really pushing us into unknown territory (at least for me) and is very honest in his critiques.

Une peinture pour un livre d’enfants… ou un peu plus vieux. J’ai eu la chance d’être présente lors de cette séance de modèle vivant et son étayage donnant une atmosphère assez gothique/celtique… même halloweenesque? Ce que j’aime le plus de la classe de Marc Taro Holmes est qu’il nous pousse dans un territoire inconnu (au moins pour moi) et qu’il est très honnête dans ses critiques. 

Paper: Arches paper 140 lb CP
Colours: Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine and Raw Sienna.
