“The Dollmaker’s Cottage”
Come sit along the flower garden. Smell of the flowers and sounds of the bubbling brook all around you. The moon is casting a luminescent blanket of glowing delicious colors of eye candy in every direction. The Cottage lights are glowing as the kind dollmaker and his wife laugh and socialize with family and friends near the fireplace. If you look hard enough, you can see the fantastic wildlife of Strangeland all around. This is where Dollface was created.
This piece is the crowned jewel of my entire body of work. The amount of incredible detail I put in this piece was almost maddening. I wanted to test the limits of my abilities creatively while also using all of my cumulative experience and all of the studying I’ve done to see what could happen if I attempted to push my own limits beyond my comfort level. I used all of my favorite techniques in this piece along with a few new ones. I focused heavily on the lighting with techniques used by master artists I enjoy such as Thomas Kinkade & Johannes Vermeer.
