Gold Mask Finished

My Gold Mask is finally finished.
The final touch was a Swarovski crystal in the shape of a snowflake that I added to the center of the forehead.
It is clear in color but in this photo picked up the green from the background despite being glued on gold leaf.
Now to find my next Mask.

Princess Lily Grace WIP Step3

I have added some more color to her face but need to work on the eyes a lot more and put on her brows. This humid weather has made the drying time long.
I have just roughly filled in her hair and find a cartoon like quality to the painting at this point.
I have too hard of an edge on the right side of her face and I will be softening that.
Keep watching as I progress.

Gold Mask WIP 1 step to go

Well just one more step to go. I have just added the final jewel to the point of the mas where the feathers join so I will be able to show you the finished product in my next post.
Here I have worked some more on the Lilies and the background as well I have applied more gold leaf.
This is the third in my Mask series.

Gold Mask WIP

I have almost finished my gold mask. Tonight I removed the central rhinestone and added more gold leaf to that area to cover the white feather edges and pull the whole mask together. I just have a few details left to finish like the stamens in the lilys and to make the book come foreward.

Princess Lily Grace WIP Step 2

I have worked abit more on my painting of Lily. Unfortunately tonight was the first night in over two weeks that I have painted. I need to decipline myself to get back at at least an hour a day.

I have started working on the eyes and the jewels in her crown as well as inhance her flesh tones.

I will soon start working on the hair so that I can pull all the colors together.
