Yesterday I posted a yellow gold and diamond brooch which was inspired from my sketch of a deer. After finishing that rendering and having a little distance from it, I realized that I made some design changes to my original sketch as I was painting. While the end result was interesting, I decided to go back and re-render the brooch keeping more faithful to my original sketch. And, to continue to hone my skills, I painted the brooch this time in white metal (rendering large expanses of white metal is harder than rendering gold.) Here is the brooch in its new version:
I’d love to hear feedback from my readers on which version you think is more successful as a design!
