Well, I'm done with tiny Egyptian gods and goddesses for awhile and have moved on to more ambitious things. I've decided to try my hand at a painting of Zenyatta playing in the snow at Lane's End. Now I'm not good enough a draftsman to make it totally realistic--not that I possess the skill and technique to do that anyway--so I'm just aiming for something that's kind of similar and is pleasing on the eye--more about creating a mood, I guess, one about how I feel when I think about the great Zenyatta finally getting to relax and be herself after thrilling us all, time after time, race after race, when she'd charge down the stretch to the wire and win by a head, drawing away.
At first I was making this video for a friend, and then it occurred to me to just put this on my blog for everybody to see.
Artists: all advice is welcome since this is my first painting like this, and honestly I'm just learning as I go along.
