Contemplating his pin feathers by Hagge Contemplating his pin feathers by Hagge
Dash-in-dash-out again...

I haven't done a deepwoods picture in a couple of blue moons, so it was difficult to exclude the clutter. ( I love deepwood clutter...:) )

What? I'm never happy with my pictures!

5 more to go...:dance:

He looks like he's trying to remember something he's forgotten, in a sort of casual, "I didn't leave the oven on...did I?" way. And your lighting is particularly gorgeous in this... I love the deepwood clutter too. :D

Hello !! Remember me ??? Another owl lover :aww:

I love it... looks so real and beautiful!!! The light is awesome and your skills to draw owls are impressive... there´s something really magical about this piece... The trees are majestic and all suggests a hidden forest corner, where an owl would feel very comfortable...

:clap:

P.D. Since you love owls, you might like the story that leaded to this photo... :aww: Check it if you want, no compromise! [link]

I did have a look! That is a beautiful drum. Do you have those up on commission, somewhere?
Reply
:iconwendyf:
wendyf Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009
:D My friend makes the drums, his link is in my signature. They're not cheap(being hand made and all) but he's always making them and having workshops with people to make their own. The commission work I get is usually by word of mouth or simply by 'Note'. I don't have a site as I'm too busy to do it properly most of the time and then I forget stuff (I'm a bit of a technophobe). All of the drums in my gallery are commissions for various people, some are 'back for another' ones. I love doing them :)

Hagge Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009  Professional General Artist
Yeah, I took a look at some more of your drum paintings...those are actually quite impressive. :nod: What do you use to prime the drum?
Reply
:iconwendyf:
wendyf Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009
:D thanks for that. :hug:
Anyway, the drums are proper cured hide and stretched on the frames. I use acrylic paint then varnish and wax. I try not to make the paint too thick and use more washes than anything, just like a watercolor. But unlike watercolor I scrub the paint in fairly hard to make sure it sticks.

So, as to priming...nothing...but they are gently sanded with fine carborundum(?spelling)abrasive, it's white and cabinet makers use it.Then it's wiped over with a damp cloth to get rid of any dust.
I tried using a primer but it peeled off...wasn't happy!

Hagge Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2009  Professional General Artist
I take it, then, that you use an acrylic thinner, as opposed to water. I've painted metal mailboxes, and of course, have run into the same problem with the paint wanting to peel off...I don't know...I'm asking...
Yeah, the abrasive makes sense.
