Have to make a short entry this time... Doing some financial work which I expect to complete this week.
It's a bit of a cop out, but in the spirit of providing content, here's the first (and last) painting I ever did using oils. (The mountain was done with oils and a pallete knife; the rest of the painting is acrylic.) It's titled "The Final Herald of the Dawn" and dated 1993. I recall that the thing that looks like a sword was intended to be a tremendous structure in the distance, with a mirror finish along the 'blade' so that it reflected the blue sky on the horizon behind the viewer's perspective. I edited the lady's eyes in Photoshop, as I had committed the elementary artist's error of rendering them asymmetrically. (Other mistakes, I've left in.) It's often wise to check one's work in a mirror, particularly for beginners.
