Today’s Art (9th December 2017)

Well, I was still in the mood for painting from life when I made this digitally-edited painting. Originally, it was just going to be a still life of an adorable little tortoise figurine I’d found gathering dust on one of the shelves of my computer desk a few days ago. But, whilst examining it and sketching it, I thought that I’d try to draw my hand as well and, before I knew it, I’d sketched out a much more detailed first-person perspective painting. Although I used a bit of artistic licence with some parts of the background, I really like how it turned out 🙂

As usual, this painting is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

    Lovely. Looks like the tortoise would soon crawl onto your hand, enjoy the moment, and then perhaps crawl back into the paper through the other hand.
