It was time to have another go a portrait oil painting and I am fairly happy with the results considering how it started!
So I have finally make a start on the next ‘masterpiece’! Not one for going big I think I am going to regret A2 size – it is going to take me forever to finish. The test will be whether I get bored before that happens.
Finally, something half decent! A pencil drawing of my youngest. In case anyone is wondering he is holding a menu over his head! This is so much better than the last two pictures I attempted which were filed in the bin (although they were pastel landscapes – maybe they are just not my thing).
This does still have some issues but good to do something ok again.
After the last week of sound sweet FA I have finally gotten round to doing something. I think this is either not very good or a work in progress – for the moment it is going to be the latter. For some reason the oils are going really dull and with the paper I’m using they are sinking in to much. Will try and improve it tomorrow.
Regretting not bringing art bits on holiday. This is the best I could manage in a couple of minutes stealing my daughters pens!!
Probably did a bit better with this one.
This was the effort of last night’s art class – I love it. It was so much fun just throwing on some paint and seeing what happened. May have to have another go at this
So this is how The Reptile has ended up – about 2 hours work. Next time I am going to try out some layering and see if that helps. Love the bright colors of the pastels though.
