ART Post - new Portrait art [May. 27th, 2011|10:51 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I took a break from doing fanart for a bit to paint art for my dear kupukello for her birthday. I've wanted to paint this portrait of her beautiful daughters, Katrina and Bramble, for ages. The references for this portrait were three photos taken at different times by kupukello.


Katrina and Bramble

I just came back from a really fun vacation trip to Florida. We visited some fabulous art museums and Universal Islands of Adventure/Harry Potter World and the Kennedy Space Center. Pictures to come!

Beautiful portrait! And I'm jealous you got to go to Harry Potter World! I really need to find a reason to go to Orlando soon....

Thank you, Kim! ^.^ *hugs*

Hee - HP World was really fun - it was crowded - but we had a great time. The detail in everything is just astounding. And we visited some really awesome art museums also while we were in Florida. There's a museum in Winter Park (which is now really a suburb of Orlando) - the Morse Museum of American Art - that has the most fabulous collection of Tiffany art. We also went to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota and the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. Both awesome!! :D

Ooh nice, I was going to ask if you had visited the Dali museum. I definitely want to go there one day. And I know the Ringling museum is supposed to be great. I haven't heard of the Morse museum, so I'll add it to my mental list of places to go one day. :)
