Ok, this was a weirdly weird one. It started as a picture of an elf.
But to hit deadline, I needed something faster because I knew I wouldn't be able to finish the portrait in time.
So I ended up just painting a cloudy night sky with lots of stars with the classic foregrounded silhouette in front of a colorful background shtick.
But if you look closely, you can see the remnant of the elf ghosted into the coloring a bit
I guess an interesting note is that this is another landscape where I started painting straight up and then at random intervals would just totally warp and shift the canvas to generate new ideas and keep me on my toes, so this is the product of a lot of chance.
