Meet Bethelda. She likes mushrooms, fire, mud, and long walks in the woods. Oh, and trout. Her diet is 90% trout with mushrooms for dessert. She was created from the churning cauldron that is Adobe Photoshop. Hope you enjoy.
So I’ve been practicing acrylics lately and I have done a few studies that I would like to share. These are both small Peter Paul Rubens studies done in acrylic. I tried to limit myself in color and time. They were done in just a couple hours.

This is the final piece
New album artwork and design. The album is Timescape by Scott Flox. I got to photograph him & his awesome studio, draw him, and design his album. Quite a pleasure. Top row is the front and back of album. Bottom two are the images on the inside left and right.
