Finally finished! " Nocturne in Green" graphite, watercolor, gouache on paper with 24k Gold. Available.

I'll be making prints of her in the coming months along with a few others!

Some parts had to be completely redone... frustrating is just the beginning of it!

Does anyone have any interesting pattern or decorative art books they recommend?

Pencil and watercolor...Today I was actually going to post something completely different, but what I was working on has to be completely redone...from scratch!

It can be painful to find mistakes at a later stage in a project. For me the hardest part is maintaining enthusiasm while doing something over for the second time. It's a mental exercise that's for certain!

Do you do it all over again when you find unfixable mistakes in your paintings or do you leave it and start something new?

Chaos into Beauty. Sometimes when I get deep into things, the studio gets messy! But the picture holds all my organisation.

How does your studio look when you are in a deep state of work?

Finally adding some colour! But not too much to distract from the drawing itself.

Joni Mitchell is one of my favourite musicians to listen to when I'm working. Who are your favourite singers and musicians to listen to while you paint?

Work in progress, you never know how things will turn out in the end!

Do you always know what your finished pictures will look like when you start out? Or do you just begin and let the painting take you?

"Diurne in Blue and Gold". Available, DM for info : )

I have always loved pattern and decoration. When I was younger it was through art from the Rococo period. When I became a more seasoned artist I realised I loved Rococo because of the intense decorative nature.
When I was older I found the Pre-Raphaelite, Art Nouveau, and Arts & Craft movements, which I very much fell in love with and still hold very close today.

Styles like Art Nouveau are very difficult to follow, I think, because they are so classic and fairly easy to spot.
I try to embody these movements by imagining, ,"what would happen if I were an artist living in the same period with the same beliefs as they hold?"
And try to create within that premise. Of course, I am not of those time periods, I am of this one, which is utterly unique.
I don't worry so much about that though, because I feel that my time, my era, will show up through me no matter what I do because I am a part of it.

What do you think about trying to be a part of movements that are from the past? Should we let them be, or try to continue those movements forward?

Work in progress and ever changing. I have too many other projects that need to be finished, but curls are calling to be drawn instead! The mood for creation is challenging to control and manage.

Do you try to control it, or just let it do its own thing?

She's finally finished, border and all! Had to sneak some 24k gold along the inner border! I will be making giclée prints of her soon. If you want to be first on the list when they are available,
just send me a dm or a message on my website terrachapmanart.com
Prints will include the hand drawn decorative border.

Flash sale! If you take this sleepy fairytale by Friday a discount worth your while will be included!

Has anyone seen the series Faerie Tale Theater with Shelly Duvall? I watched them when I was little and have recently found them again. They are sweet and a fun theatrical play in the dreamy land of fairytale and myth.

Work in progress, watching pictures come alive as you make them is one of the best parts of being an artist. It's a front row seat for the emergence of something new.
