Winter Dream

Posted in My Art Work on February 22, 2011 by jayneemacksart

This Image was recently done for a Client of mine. Her passion is snowboarding and so we came up with a few images to use as references. She wanted the photo to be recreated but as her doing the snowboarding trick. I had her send me a few photos of herself in her snowboarding outfit so We could personalize the photo to meet her needs. I love the colours of winter. so cool, soft and cold. lots of soft purples, blues and of course a lot of fresh white! Let me know what you all think of this newest piece?!

Loving Lions

Posted in My Art Work on February 22, 2011 by jayneemacksart

I am captivated by WildLife Cats. I think they are so strong and powerful, so fierce and aggressive yet still beautifully made and seeing these natural predators show affection and love to each other is touching.

 I did this Piece for my Grandfather to complete the set I started for him. I did the Tiger one for him which you saw and now I gave him one of two loving Lions. This photo took quite some time because I sketched every single strand of hair, But although it took long I wanted to make sure I got as close to realistic as I could. Of course there are always improvements and growing to do on each art piece. Still I am pretty pleased with the outcome of the Lions.
