WIP Wednesday


work in progress 15 x 20 watercolor (detail)

     This is one of the first spiritual pieces of art that I've ever done. Some of my favorite artists paint Christian scenes and I've always wanted to do that. I never have because I always felt like I needed to hone my skills a little more. I wanted it to be the best that I could make it. So I guess you could say I was a little intimidated.

     This painting has been a really cool experience for me. I won't tell you the story behind it yet because it's not finished and this is just a small piece of it, and it would be spoilery if I told you right now. But maybe you have an idea of what it's about anyway, if you do I'd love to hear it. :) 

     I still need to deepen the color and adjust the values. I'm enjoying painting this, but it is taking me forever because I'm being very careful not to mess it up! Hopefully I won't. :) Until tomorrow friends!

  1. It is wonderful, Crystal. I understand too well about the messing up. I think I just painted some autumn leaves too big for the picture and now will have to start over. Whew!

  7. Lovely so far, looking forward to the finish. I messed my latest painting up, too dark and thick in areas. Yours are always so transparent!

  8. Wow! This one seems to be coming out great, just like all others. I have no idea of the story behind it, and would not mind to wait till the painting is completed. Surely it would be wonderful, as you want it to be.
    Best wishes,

  10. Staying tuned for this WIP, Crystal. I'm excited to see the finish. My first thought was "Blessed are the pure of heart . . .", so I'm eager to hear the story behind the painting.

  11. A Christening! And baby is in a Christening gown asleep on the priests shoulder. Am I right? I love how you have captured the silkiness of the baby's gown.
    It's a beautiful and delicate painting - I think with this one, less is definitely more :0)
