Bast Painting WIP/Painting Process Pixs # 1-6

I am basing my new Bast painting on the actual Temple of Bastet at Bubastis :) It's not exactly as the description but close and the temple will be in red granite just like it originally was.

I decided to make this a new WIP/Painting Process page for my website. The two I have now are pretty old. So I have been taking pixs of my new bast painting as I've been working on it. Sorry they aren't nice scanned pixs but it's a 16" x 20" and it would be impossible for me to scan it that many times ;) I will be adding the descriptions to each picture later for my site but for now here are the pixs so far starting with the cleaned up version of my sketch....

Painting the sky, Blocked in the sand

Detailed the sand

Palm trees, grass and Papyrus plants

I think it looks good so far :) It's going pretty quick too. Well the sketch took a week but I just started painting it last night. I hope you all like it!
