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!
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
Having another go with the oil portrait but going large – we shall see.
Trying something new by adding some darker brown layers and white before adding the colours on top.
After about 5 days waiting for the white to dry have finally been able to add a little more paint. Starting to take shape but can’t wait to get the top layers on which basically involves blobs of brightly coloured paint!
More detail going on – soon time for some serious paint. Don’t know much about mediums but I think the next step is going to be using linseed oil. So far just used liquid and white spirit.
