Illustration Friday


The Blue Phoenix
cold wax

I painted this picture last summer, and thought it would be ideal to use it for this weeks Illustration Friday.  The model is my granddaughter.  I had her holding a large roll of foam, and pretending that she was enjoying a flight on a blue phoenix.  Naturally we had to make up a story about flying a blue phoenix, so that she could get in the spirit of it.

The medium is cold wax.  If you are interested of painting with cold wax, you can find the medium in art stores, or on line. here are two of my posts on the subject of cold wax medium:  one is a recipe, and the other is how I applied it.  

Have fun with it

This week’s topic is: Ocean

Caught in the net

This week, the inspiration word for Illustration Friday is  OCEAN.
I've decided to  combine two apps from my IPhone: Flowpaper and Scketch Club to work out a concept of a seal caught in the net.
