This didn’t start off as a palette knife painting. It was all going a bit wrong so thought – might as well just go for it! To finish this evening.
Have a bit more on the page now but need to balance the colours which went a bit wrong last night!! Annoyingly it will take ages to dry so will be an age before I can try some remedial work!!
Update: not sure whether I have actually improved it. Think I will give it up and try something else!
Apart from the whites of the eyes the start of a painting has got to be the hardest bit.
We shall see.
Started this one this evening. Bring too impatient so far – have a yellow sky when it should be blue as I haven’t waited for the first layer to dry! Shall now be a bit more patient and leave it for a while before adding anything more. Another mistake was also using a dark pencil to do some sketching before the paint – just turned the paint to grey!
So now for something a little bit different. Was attempting to get this done in one evening but is turning into a bit of a mess. Will let it dry a little and come back to it. And yes, it is a black and white painting.
I put some colour on in the end although quite liking the black and white theme.
It’s taken a bit of work but finally got there. Now to figure out what to do with it.
Getting through a few colours and a little bit of wine(!) to attempt to get the latest portrait finished. On the home stretch now – nearly but not quite finished
