My wild boar drawing is finished! I’m really on a roll getting half done projects finished at the moment. It feels really good as the final push takes a short time so I really feel I’m accomplishing something for a change! You can see all the previous stages of the wild boar paintings here
This piece stumped me for a while, and it really does proove wise to put things to one side and mull over them.
I had huge issues with the background, originally it was supposed to be bracken and fern but I found it far too busy against all the grass and the stripes of the hoglets. You can see above as I started to add the background it just became too busy and complicated, which I normally do like, however, sometimes, less is more! After much procrastination, pondering and pfaffing, I went for the good old faithful blurry background!
Some other news
