Nessie...you know...the Loch Ness Monster. Now...I know that Nessie doesn't have the spikes traditionally...but to me she does.
So here is the progress of Nessie.
First I selected a size and sketched her out. I did consult with my art critic who thought I should make her a triptych...but instead I made her
fit all in one canvas.
Then I started painting her....one layer at a time she started to come together.
I did finish her...but I've decided to keep her under wraps until she hangs on the wall at Books & Books in the Gables next month.
Along with Nessie, I painted another Mermaid...Double Banyons...5 Little Piggies and a request from earlier this summer which I blogged about, Los Pollitos Dicen-Pio,Pio,Pio.
I hope you are enjoying the progress of my summer painting list.
...and I hope you will come out in September on Gallery Night in Coral Gables and see the paintings live and in living color.
As usual...thanks for the support! I'll have 5 more paintings by the end of next weekend.
