Danielle by wolfie-janice Danielle by wolfie-janice
This was an experiment in many aspects. I wanted to paint some more with acrylic, to paint on a slightly different surface (this is on a piece of cardboard from some kind of packaging), to try to paint realism from a photo, and I wanted to try painting with a large brush with quick strokes.

I actually timed myself for this one. It took 3 hours in total and was really fun to do!

Reference photo is stock image from ~mare-wrath-stock: [link] Thank you!

Oh my, the Daily Deviation totally made my day!! :o Thank you for featuring it, and for your comments and favorites. This is my first time getting featured, and I'm super honored and happy!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-22
Danielle by ~wolfie-janice is yet another of those great cases where DA provides both a solid stock resource/reference from which a fairly well executed new work can emerge. ( Featured by zeruch )

Wow, this is a great piece. Normally I stray away from such a rough painting technique, but in this piece, it really suits the overall mood of the figure. The toned down background also draws the viewer into the struggle that is possibly being faced by the individual, and gives a great sense of connection to her.
Great stuff, and congrats on the Daily Deviation! :D

You should experiment more often. Because this is so great! I love how this painting branched out from the original photo in a way, with colors and all that. Amazing. <3
