Bride of Frankenstein Painting - Monster Jam

I have a huge blank wall when you first walk in my house, All my other walls are full of art and I knew I needed something there that was larger. I went back and forth about painting something myself because we are all our own worst critics and I knew I would nitpick it all the time. Plus, my painting skills are very rusty, especially doing larger pieces. It’s been over a decade. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
I decided on the Bride of Frankenstein. I am not happy with how she turned out, but I had help from my 21-year-old cat, Venkman. Whenever I look at it, instead of seeing all the flaws, I will remember the fun I had painting with him.

Ignore the rest of my house. Here it is on the wall. I plan to put more pictures around it.

and here we are painting together!


Thanks for checking it out!

You aren’t happy with this painting?! How is that even a thing? It is fabulous! But I guess that’s the thing with monsters, right? They always leave you with a little unease.
I love how she looks like Frankie’s sweetie but she’s her own character. We’ll done, you 2 cool cats :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you all for the kind comments. I am so used to the control of a marker that painting was frustrating.

The scale is amazing! And I love the geometric background against her tilted face. Your shadowing is SPOT ON.

:metal:

But my fav is obviously Venk helping the project along. Hi baby!
