I’ll admit it. I’m struggling with this one. I haven’t had time to REALLY get in my groove... so I’m just focusing on the part that I like, and hopefully it’ll bring forward more happy accidents!
(Swipe if you’d like to see the whole thing....)
A first try to draw the whole picture in few colours. I thin I will try to do it at least one more time, but will use a bit different colour
Hallelujah, glory, it’s Monday!!! I don’t know if I’ve ever uttered such a phrase. This weekend though - 😅. I lost hours upon hours of my life to a DIY project and confirmed to myself and everyone around me, yet again, how much I loathe DIY home improvement projects. I’d think it should be in my blood. Both my parents are incredibly good DIYers. But holy hannah, not me. I’d rather eat sandpaper or scrub a few toilets or pull my arm hairs out slowly and methodically one by one. It’s just not me. So today I am ever grateful to be done. D. O. N. E. And even more grateful to have a few minutes in the studio before I head out to basically conquer the world in the form of errand running. Too-da-loo for now, folks. I’m taking some deep breaths and rejoining the land of real people with real lives who are not painting strips of board for their bathroom walls for 17 million hours straight. I’ll be back to normal by tomorrow. I hope.
Here's what I learned today: while I love the look achieved by artists who do tons of layering and blending in their faces, it's not a technique that works for me. I end up with overworked messes (see upper left). I'm much happier painting simple value-driven faces. Also, I like painting with water soluble oil pastels more than I thought I would (see lower right) #drawingpractice #paintingfaces #paintingpractice
