Bell

In a desperate attempt to drive traffic I have sunk to the level of painting Disney princesses in hopes of snatching a few unassuming Google searchers.

Actually it is a Avalanche blog topic which was prompted by these to nice princess paintings done by Sam Neilson(since childhood Disney princess coloring book pages seem to be a specialty of Sam's) and Ryan Wood.
Kind of enjoyable to not have to worry about the drawing, just go to town with colors. The color scheme was taken from one of my favorite paintings evah, Jean-Francois Millet's Louise-Antoinette Feuardent(I think the colors on the link are not that good) which you can see at the fantastic J. Paul Getty museum in LA.

I like that Millet painting a lot too. I remember when I first saw it at the Getty I was surprised how clunky the brush strokes on the lace collar are. It's like he didn't care at all about that part of the painting. Or didn't finish or something. But the rest is fantastic.

Nice job on your princess.

David, to drive traffic, don't name your pictures with generic titles. Before you upload them, title them what they ARE - "princess bell original illustration" is better than a series of numbers and "bell". When people use Google Image search, the TITLE of the photo is a HUGE help to getting your images listed in the search earlier.

If you look up "pastel figure drawing" in a google search, you'll see several of my drawings early on - because I title them BEFORE adding them to my blog.

Feel free to e-mail me if you want to chat about it!
