Mr Wind by kittyvane Mr Wind by kittyvane
Meet Mr Wind.
He lives in a dusty little attic and feeds sleepless birds with french bread in the park at night. He reads newspapers just to hear them rustle and he thinks that he invented the wind.
_______

This is a progress shot of the duptych entitled "Mr Wind" that I'm currently painting. It still lacks some details and special effects.
EDIT: This is now the finished version. :)
The original paintings are 19cm x 24cm.
I haven't painted with oils in about ten years and this is my first try at it again.

Sorry about the somewhat blurry pictures, my digicam can't do any better.

All the blue tones are lovely and so is the story behind the picture. I like the whole style of it.

I love this, even though it's a wip ... I like the texture and the tones in a single range (blue, pale and dark...)

Actually the finished piece isn't that diffrent from this. The shadows are a bit sharper and the shapes a little better defined, but no great diffrences excist between this and the finished paintings.

Thank you so much for the fav. :)

Fun piece. The man waving hello or goodnight to the bird. I like how you put two images as one, it links together as a connection between man and nature. Because really I am not sure if he's waving to the moon, or the tree, or the bird itself. So its quite interesting piece. The colors are those of the night which set the mood in place. Keep up the good work. :)

Okay, this is a really indecent offer...but what would you want for a painting like this? I'd be VERY interested in buying it.

A prints account, since there's no way on earth I'm gonna part with the original paintings.
(And since they're going to be taking part in an art contest, I can't sell them.)

Thank you ever so much for the compliment and the fav bro. :)

I'm actually working on that. As soon as I get a decent portfolio together I'm going to do the rounds at every publisher I know.

Mr Wind is also going to be the star of a short, slightly filosofical comic.

Man, this is awesome!

This would also make for two separate prints...and to frame them and place them side by side.
