I’ve had this painting for a while now, but I was never quite happy with certain details in it, so today when I was painting I pulled it out and mixed up a soft, warm gold and brought the too-subtle wings into fuller being. They’re still translucent and only half-realized at best, but much easier to see.
Unreal Angel, 12″x16″ pastel and oil paint on canvas board.
I also added a sort of secret detail; I got out my duochrome aquamarine and gave him a gently-blended halo that you can only see from some angles — in photos, it only showed up with the flash on.
