The Misty Vale

2018 The Misty Vale : Oil on 8′ x 10′ Canvas

This was a fun little piece to keep the paint flowing and it’s my third painting since I took up the brush again! This also gives me a chance to tell you about some of the changes I’ve made to how I will be running my Patreon page for now. Since I haven’t been a very active creator, I decided to go to a per creation basis for how often my supporters are charged. This way if my day job gets in the way or I go through another period of artistic block you wont be expected to pay for it and it’ll keep me motivated to keep creating. Another thing I will be doing is getting my supporters involved in the creation process by doing weekly polling where you can vote on the next painting to be done as well as a monthly poll that will be used to decide the focus. Right now my proposed subjects are split into 3 categories; landscapes, objects and creatures.

Landscapes will be much like what you see above. I don’t really ever describe my goal well but I just want to paint fantastic places you would never see on this world, add a bit of magical atmosphere to an ordinary world.

Objects would be similar but on a smaller scale. I was thinking of doing small paintings of my potions to start and going from there, see what ideas you might have.

Creatures would be, of course, mythical creatures from dragons and griffins to possibly mermaids and fairies.
