I designed and cut out these ornaments 4 years ago. They were prepped - then ended up in the U.F.O. (unfinished object) pile.
Sometimes when I get into a bit of a creative rut it helps to pull out something like this & just start painting it. I only made line drawings for these ornaments, I didn't have any idea about the color scheme or details. Making it up as I go along can produce some interesting results!
The Beast isn't finished yet - but he's getting there! The fur on his arms needs to be a little messier I'm thinking, he looks a little too "neat"!
When I have several projects going at once I can tell which palette belongs to each by looking at the colors!
Here's Beauty - I've just started working on her.
Together they make rather an odd looking couple! It's been fun painting them.
