The first two zodiac signs are finished...

 


De eerste twee grotere schilderijen van de dierenriemtekens zijn af. 
Ik heb het vierkante formaat van de kleinere oefenversies laten varen, hoewel dat me wel geholpen heeft om een goede compositie te vinden. 
The first two larger paintings of the zodiac signs are finished.
I abandoned the square format of the smaller trial versions, although they did help me find a good composition.




De stier onderging verschillende fases. De eerste stier leek op een schaap, de tweede op een jong kalf en de derde op een gay stier. Maar ik ben heel tevreden met de laatste versie.
The bull went through various stages. The first bull looked like a sheep, the second like a young calf, and the third one like a gay bull. But I am very happy with the final version.

Gemini, de tweelingen, zijn nog in ontwikkeling. Ik hoop ze gauw te laten zien.
Gemini, the twins, are still evolving. I hope to show them soon.

  5. Thank you Laura and Polly! The animal signs of the zodiac are definitely easier that the human signs. I'm working on Gemini now.

  6. Amazing work Judy! Aries is mine and I love the color and expression in both paintings. All your preliminary sketches paid off in order to work out all the glitches.

  9. Mooi Judy. En wat een mannelijke stier. Ik vind het 'flosje'op zijn voorhoofd zo grappig.

  10. Thank you Sadami!

    Dankje Hanneke! Hij is samengesteld uit verschillende foto's, o.a. een stierengevecht-stier. Eén daarvan had een kruintje daar, vond het ook zo leuk. :)

  24. This is going to be a great little series Judy, these two for starts are great

  25. I like this version a lot and admire your persistence. The bull looks really great now, more serious and fierce. Definitely not gay, this one :) The Aries is very lovely too, with softer colors than the study. Waiting for the next sign...

  26. Prachtig! Kleuren, uitdrukking, stijl spreken me geweldig aan. Groetjes, Frieda

  27. Ik ben zelf een ram, dus ik moet hier uiteraard op reageren. Ik vind je ram heel mooi! De horens zijn heel krachtig, maar hij kan zich er ook een beetje achter verschuilen. Dat vind ik mooi bij het sterrenbeeld passen.
    Veel succes met de rest! Het gaat vast een mooie serie worden.
