Daily Painting No. 91 – Genuine Wyrm (Finished)

Yay! I finally finished this painting! I learn allot about balancing the color, and taking a still life study and upgrading it to a finished illustration that uses elements from my imagination. A triad color scheme was used for this. I am very happy with how the dragon came out. The part of the painting I had the most trouble was with the lid, oddly enough. rendering the dragon and the jar was a blast. If your wondering what ‘wyrm’ means, it is a old English word for dragon. I have a cropped version as well.  I felt previous versions had too much open unactivated space. However I kept both versions because I couldn’t make up my mind. The other version is here Which version of this painting do you like better? What do you think of this painting? Painted from scratch using Photoshop and a drawing tablet. 10 hours? I lost count.

After a little under 5 hours, I have finally finished this painting. My black and white still life project is completed.  For one month I painted 12 still life paintings. I clocked in a total 22 hour painting these. I my goal was ten still life paintings in one month, I went two beyond my quota :). I felt I have jumped a substantial hurdle in my painting, and that was details and refinement. I will continue to paint a still life or two a week to keep the skills I’ve learned sharp and with hopes that I will learn even more. Let me know what you think of the final painting. Any comments and critiques are welcome. Thank you for bearing with me for the last 4 days with this painting. I have a painting to put in my portfolio.

Here is a picture of the progress I made to paint this:
