Destiny's Angel, completed artwork

"Destiny's Angel", the work in progress now completed. 8x10 acrylic on Everlast canvas panel. I wanted to use my Fun Art style to explore complexity: to see if I could make a complex composition that still worked without being too crowded, busy, or overworked. I feel like I achieved that goal. Although it's complex, you can still see the L shaped compositional pattern I started with.

In some ways, my Fun Art style is harder to paint in than realism because it requires extensive use of invention. I'd like to try this complexity experiment again in my realistic style (or rather, as realistic as I get...I always have to throw a little weirdness in there).

Thanks for sharing your work in progress. I just love seeing how others do their step by step process. I'm trying to photograph a couple of mine as I'm doing them too. Love the little owl at the top!

Theresa, this is so perfect, I love to watch it to discover the various things you painted in, the eyes never stop and discover many and many particulars. Simply beautiful.
