Becca's Egypt Painting

Here's my final Egypt painting. I'm pretty happy with how this piece turned out, but this scan of it has made me realize that it's time for a new scanner (it's a little blurry in spots)! Yeesh, it's always something!

Anyway, I had fun with this one. Let me know what you think!


  1. I like the stylistic look of this one, Becca. The lighting is especially lovely and effective.

    [Got Spectrum today and had to smile when I saw Dan's portrait of you as the elf. Brought back many IMC memories]

  2. Lovely!!! Great addition to the portfolio - for magazines and history articles! Loooove the lighting, and I especially like her left hand, its fabulous. How are you liking solely using watercolor lately? Still enjoying? I also love the composition.

    I have a few ideas for the next project based on stuff I want to do on my own... haha but I don't want to force us to have a project based on my own ideas unless you actually like them! We can discuss tomorrow. One was the animal project, another was a contemporary child scene (like a piece for a parenting magazine or something), etc. Or we can just think up something new! haha I feel like we need something un-fantasy though since the fantasy market right now sucks for new childrens book illustrators ):
