This is the view out my front door. Just for reference, the fence you see back left is about a four foot fence, and the snow is easily over 2' deep there. Winds have ceased blowing as hard as last night, where we had gusts anywhere from 30-40mph. Now, it's just dumping snow on us. We are expected to get another 4-6" of snowfall throughout the day. Needless to say, everything is closed for the day.
I can't even open the door, as snow has piled up against the house. Looks like I got my wish to stay in and do some painting!
I did take pictures of my recent paintings, and here they are:
Monolith #2 I kept simple, and experimented more with weathering powders. I used a good rust color around the base of the Monolith, and a grimy black to simulate blast marks.
Heh. Double trouble. I hope I can make them as effective as I want them to be.
Ah, the Temple of Skulls. I really used a lot of paint on this one. I drybrushed a 3 tone color on the rocks, and added a layer of green on some of the facings to simulate moss. My favorite part was probably the easiest. I mixed up some red paint, flo-aid and just a touch of 'ard coat, put it in a medicine dropper, and pumped it out onto the base of the Chaos symbol. I had previously propped up the base slightly on some rolled up paper towels, so that the "blood" would flow down the steps. Couldn't have turned out better.
I would really like to find an altar and a victim to put on top of this piece. I may have to just rig one up myself, but I think that would really complete the effect of the Temple.
Well, I think the heater has finally had enough time to warm up around my desk, so the paint can flow freely. I hope to have a really productive "snow day". LOL
