Mermay 2017 Day 1

I had a lot of fun taking part in Mermay last year and am excited to be taking part again this year! I will try my best to create an image for each day of the month and hopefully will! 

Anyone else taking part in Mermay this year? 

Twin Peaks Fan Art

I first watched Twin Peaks about two years ago and really enjoyed it and am currently in the middle of rewatching it in preparation for the revival series this spring which I am very excited for! The series features some amazing imagery and I have seen amazing art inspired by the series and wanted to draw something based around the series myself.

I choose to paint the Red Room in the Black Lodge as the visual imagery is very bold, striking and surreal and I thought it would be both fun and challenging to depict. I also wanted to include Laura Palmer in the foreground as so much of the series revolves around her.

Originally, i had drawn the floor at a different angle, but as I began to paint it, the pattern looked very odd and it became quite frustrating to work on. So, I eventually decided to start the floor over again and simply it more be making it look more flatter and painting the pattern straight onto the image rather than playing around with angles.

I didn’t quite get it completely right, but by this point I have used quite a few layers of paint and it was beginning to crack so I therefore decided to just finish it as it is. Over all I don’t think it looks too bad as the imagery is very surreal anyway, I feel that this only adds to that.

Is anyone else a fan of Twin Peaks and as excited for the new series as I am?
