This here is an original character I created on my iPad using Procreate. I think I'll call her something generic for an angel....like Angelica 🤔 I really like the kinda painterly approach I took here. A lot more brushy than many of my other pieces, but I really like it. I'm still on that journey to find my own personal style but I feel like I'm making good progress in developing it. Gonna try make heaps more original characters, I super enjoy creating them!! Really want to do something sci-fi but I find sci-fi designs quite challenging... challenges are good though right? ![Up_1o-1.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdUCDcVSfDu6fNJSRygXHdgZpTXDuiKzUuqm6A7GmSST3/Up_1o-1.jpg) Process Video: https://youtu.be/yi88feIgBeo

<html> <p>Sixteenth-century hobby painters are rare, at least those whose art has survived until our age, and the high degree of craftsmanship of Cornelis van Dalem makes him even more exceptional. He might not be a household name today, but according to documents, van Dalem collaborated with Rubens at least once.</p> <p><img src="https://s7.postimg.org/eqiocqnij/Dalem_Cornelis_-_Landscape_with_Farmhouse_-_1564.jpg" width="1000" height="800"/></p> <p>Cornelis van Dalem (1534-1573) was the son of a successful Dutch merchant who, at the beginning of the 16th century, moved to Antwerp. The family quickly became part of the city's wealthy elite, and the youngest son Cornelis obtained a classical humanistic education which included history, rhetoric and poetry, and in time he also learned the art of painting. Van Dalem received his education from the largely unknown painter Jan Adriaenssen in Antwerp, where he was registered as an apprentice in 1545.</p> <p>Usually when art historians write about Flemish painters
Hello Steemers! Hope you are all doing well!? It is almost weekend and it is time to share a painting I did a while ago. This painting was made for a Blizzard Art Contest a while ago but I personally still think it is one of my 'better' illustrations :) ![teamrocket.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmcabp8YgTkGQJdEfqdKtr5SiLQnBvMn9QofxKZai75y4c/teamrocket.png) I first made some thumbnail sketches to see how the composition would work out. I then started as always (with more complex illustrations) with linework. ![hearthstone-contest1.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmP4y8fKzYxg5yVh1myw7ZAkPeRv8gRurSHkEwM6d32hyd/hearthstone-contest1.jpg) This was enough information for me to start blocking in the colors and shapes . ![hearthstone-contest1paint1.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmfZuEfv6rsKWghvgvAZMSE9S9LPDuvdKzERTFnJgChe9u/hearthstone-contest1paint1.jpg) This is still very rough, but in my mind i can already see what is going to happen next and how it will eventually look.

hello steemian, glaze painting can be a frustrating process, made more so by acrylic additives which seem counter intuitive. the quick drying nature of acrylics makes you work in haste, and i often find myself working with colors which are brighter than i would like because of the glossy quality that is inherent with acrylics. i usually fight these, but on this painting i just embraced it. the layers built up so quick on the painting it became almost 3-d, the glazing medium drying in 5-10 minutes had me constantly readjusting colors to work with those underneath. here are the results, from finish to when i first thought of taking some photos. ![2014-09-05 11.18.05 HDR-1.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmWaxnhNweh5fEJrFykqUQVZVYH2UsXcRWyo3c7p3eTbhQ/2014-09-05%2011.18.05%20HDR-1.jpg) finished painting right before the new owner took it home. ![2014-08-31 16.09.51.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmUDxMrxeTqKNMyLkwn29SuNqkGxkhHgEmT5raBcpWZAJk/2014-08-31%2016.09.51.jpg) ![2014-08-25 16.28.53.jpg](https://steem

<html> <p>Swedish artist Urban Larsson (b. 1966) paints in the tradition of the old Flemish masters, and it's foremost his portraits that has given him his international reputation. He has portrayed Queen Silvia of Sweden and King Willem and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands among others.</p> <p><img src="https://s7.postimg.org/m0lpbjv4r/maxresdefault.jpg" width="1024" height="576"/></p> <p>Genre mixing and crossing all kinds of borders is since the dawn of modernism and postmodernism routine in contemporary art. Everything is allowed and the painter may as well use a computer and film camera as paint and brush in his practice.</p> <p>It's difficult to profile yourself in such a climate. One way is to embrace the traditional artist role and join a centuries-old tradition where the pure craft is in focus. Will you be popular amongst the art establishment? Probably not.</p> <p>Larsson has a solid education - at Studio Cecil & Graves in Florence - and he makes a great deal out of not using any photographic sou
A new obsession has been taking root. Every month or so something new gets stuck in my brain and I have to make art to get it out. I keep seeing giant colored sheets in the sky. They have volume like clouds but they block out everything like a giant curtain. All I see now is landscapes made of blankets. ![23594340_1986511601626304_1876363734360784896_n.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPuCYsqXsdmnpBZFCRstR4XFgvRjGzn44PYmdsbNbd1ce/23594340_1986511601626304_1876363734360784896_n.jpg) Just another chapter in a surrealist journey.

Yesterday, I presented "_Hibsen_", the godfather of a complete fictional family-tree - you can read all about him in [this post here](https://steemit.com/art/@marty-art/multiverse-universe-i-grid-painting-9-hibsen-giveaway-still-going). His descendants split up into Habsen, Hebsen, Hobsen, Hupsen and Hybsen - all of them starting with Roman numerals 'I'; and whenever I sold a painting from the 'I'-series, I would paint that next family member, with roman numeral 'II', then 'III', and so on. So this is generation II. All have been sold, by the way. The godfather "_Hibsen_", once again: ![HIBSEN.jpg](https://res.cloudinary.com/hpiynhbhq/image/upload/v1510784163/jqyf8dech9c4isca30qx.jpg) Habsen II: ![HabsenII.jpg](https://res.cloudinary.com/hpiynhbhq/image/upload/v1510784285/adxn28h81asdnexfyijq.jpg) Hebsen II: ![HebsenII.jpg](https://res.cloudinary.com/hpiynhbhq/image/upload/v1510784299/x2db14s62fjkn4auzxhh.jpg) Hobsen II: ![hobsenII.jpg](https://res.cloudinary.com/hpiynhbhq/image/upload/v1510784316/
<center> # Hey guys! How are you all? <br> Today, let's do something different. I want to take you all on a nostalgic trip with me. I joined Steemit a little over four months ago and it changed my life forever. Really, I never imagined, I would get a platform like this, ever! I have always considered myself as a creative soul because I really enjoy the abstract parts of life and I have always liked sketching and painting and experimenting with new recipes and so on. I had always wanted to share my passions with the world and I had even explored starting a blog a few years ago. When I found Steemit, it was simply a no-brainer and I jumped on the opportunity to share my creations with everybody. Today, I was going through my previous posts and I realised how far I have come and how I have grown as an artist too. Today, let me show you the journey I have been on here on Steemit as an artist through all the paintings I have made and posted here. It is truly special what dedication and passion can help you
Hi guys, today is the big day, I am sharing a process video :) It took all day to edit but I hope you guys enjoy seeing how I did this artwork. I used 300g watercolor paper and that is very important if you work with watercolors and you don’t want your paper to warp. As for my technique I combine a lot of watercolor and gouache layers. I use gouache for opaque details and for transparent gradients I come over with watercolor. I love this play between materials as it allows me to overlay a lot of details and my composition doesn’t get muddy even if I mix complementary colors. ![20664462_1956673631257279_5404725076563288257_n.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmfTLhXYvND7td8TTDfJP3EURM9K4bg5e2E3ESBsGXR9Dz/20664462_1956673631257279_5404725076563288257_n.jpg) I did a series of paintings like this one and all of them describe feelings, that is the reason I choose a busy composition with a lot of decorative elements as my own visual metaphoric language. This artwork speaks about the feeling of discov
