Faerietank – Semi-Final Painting

For new readers just tuning in: You are invited to participate in this painting! It’s a faerie tank—like a fish tank, but with faeries instead. You don’t need any more information to start. Just look it over, gather thoughts, and comment below. To see where this project began, click here.

There she is!

(You should notice some major color correction as I bought myself a monitor calibration device this week. 🙂 )

As a thank you for participating, I want to make it so that everyone who contributed in any way can receive a print of the painting (including by commenting in this semi-final post).

To you I will make available a small-sized print which you can purchase for only as much as it costs to make it (shouldn’t be more than $4).

Then, I think I will do a 20% discount on everything else for you as well (normally my prints cost anywhere from $30 to $250).

So, if you’re thinking you might buy one, even if you’re not sure yet, make sure to leave a comment of any kind.

Now, we have just a few questions that need answering:

First of all, the title “Faerietank” was mostly just a working title, and I think we could use more grace. I’m thinking of changing it to “Aqua Faeries”, what do you think? Secondly, I invite you to leave whatever thoughts about the painting you have.

Here are talking point guidelines:

 

• Which do you prefer, “Faerietank”, or “Aqua Faeries”?

• What do you think overall, is it finished?

• Are there any parts of the painting that still need attention?

• What would you think if you walked into your friend’s house and found this on the wall—would you stop to look at it?

• Anything else?

 

Well, after we hear back from everyone, all that’s left is to let it sit for a bit and then come back for final tweaks.

Thank you all so much for participating! I really mean it when I say that I am impressed with how artistically intelligent everyone is. It’s made it a wonderful experience.

Maybe you should all become painters yourselves…

What are your thoughts?

Here’s a few talking points you might consider:

• Does it look like a fish tank (of faeries)?

• What do you think about the balance of warm areas (yellows, reds, etc.) and cool areas (blues and greens)?

• Do you think we’re ready to start fleshing out the details?
