Into the Sun: My Painting for the Doggie Wonderland Show
|Into the Sun by Nicole Piar media: digital painting|
|Here is the original pencil sketch that I drew and then scanned in. It was a loose sketch to give me the feel of characters.|
|Work-in-Progress Here I begin to paint digitally right over the pencil sketch.|
I decided to move the dark decorative shapes and branches to the bottom in the final piece to create a more open composition. I really wanted the girl to feel like she was traveling swiftly into the light without any obstacles. Another great thing about digital work is that you can make changes like this super fast. Sometimes, I will even work out a composition and color study in photoshop before going to my paints.

My piece Into the Sun will be available as a framed Archival Fine Art Print in the Doggie Wonderland show for $30. This is an art benefit for the Ken-Mar Rescue. So you can get some really lovely, playful, and fun art and help a sweet abandoned doggie. After the show, I will also be selling prints of this piece in my Etsy Shop. If you would like to buy this piece, please inquire at Leanna Lin's Wonderland.
Doggie Wonderland opens on May 10 (reception 6-9pm) and runs until June 29th. If you are in the Los Angeles area, come by for a visit. Here are some more lovely pieces by my fellow artists that will be in this show.
