My new Viking Art painting for my Norse Mythology series Fateful Signs, "Vidar, God of Vengeance" was a complicated painting to finish. As you can see from the initial drawing to the final painting I made a lot of changes. I'm very happy with the results, but this painting reminded me of the importance of getting things planned out on the front end of a painting. Making massive changes in oil paint, is not the easy way to go!
If you want to read more about my thought process behind this painting you can do so on the Viking Art page.
