The Napping Goblin has been sticking with me for a couple years now. The idea started out as a sketch and then was painted on an ACEO card as shown above. Lucky winner Micki from Irish Muses won the ACEO card back in February for the One Heart One Heart Event. So this past week I decided to explore with the napping goblin again on a larger scale.
Stage 1: Drawing out the idea with pencil.
Stage 2: Finish painting the background and moving to the tree.
Stage 3: Starting to add a little green to the leafs and branches.
Stage 4: Napping Goblin starting to come to life.
Stage 5: Making the final touches.
Stage 6: Finished piece.
I'm happy the way the painting turned out so this may be the last time I paint The Napping Goblin. Doing the idea larger I was able to add more detail like adding spirits to the tree.
Since the post is about napping I thought I'd share a picture I took recently of my house cat. T spends most of her day laying on top of my dresser during the day to sun bathe. I pull the curtains around the dresser like a canape so she has privacy. She is such a good kitty.
