Default A couple more Pernish ( but not ) images

- on Lady Maelin's request. Sorry these are small, they were the only version on my server.





These are the first 2 done for the client as the unfinished painting that I first posted. -Jeff

Oops - and adding a character study for the kissing couple and dragon painting ...

Nice work Jeff, as far as we can see 'cause I am convinced the paintings will be a lot nicer when seen larger.

Pernish eh? The character study even remembers me of a picture done of Lessa once. Can't remember by whom or for what right now, but the long braid is what triggers the memory.

Those are beautiful, Jeff!

And Hans, the study reminds me a little of a picture of Lessa in the Dragonlover's Guide.

Fabulous, I especially like the first one, done on dark paper.

@ Jeff, thank you for putting these up, it is always wonderful to get to see another artist work. I agree with Tresa, and Emma the sketch does looks a bit like the one in the Dragonlovers Guide. I especially like the two who are reading the book together, perhaps a father and a daughter enjoying a book together in their garden???

Mornin' these are part of a series - the first, the Dark Wall shows the girl alone. The buildings, patterns on clothing and the wall all represent something meaningfull to the client.

The second, Apricot Sky is set in high summer, also full of meanings and the couple is the same girl ( my client ) and her fience.

The first that you saw from was a spring setting ( and they are married now )

Each is 30x40" painted in acrylics.

The study is digital, over drawn sketch and mostly about the hair, styled after the clients from her wedding, but not seen from this angel, nor so long.

Thanks for the comments, I'll post larger ones when I can ! - Jeff

The first one reminds me of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover novels more than Pern, but they could go either way.
