I know it’s been a while, but I’ll post some paintings that I’ve been doing as of late.
A few drawings that I’m happy with.
This one was difficult to complete. Felt as if I was treading water every time I stood in front of the canvas.
Again, I’ll try to get a better photo (and title) soon.
Edit… Decided that it’s not done. Back on the easel.
Now it’s done. Cleaned up some edges and played with the hair a bit. I can breath when I look at it now.
I used a photo for reference. I don’t like using photos, my tendency to recreate the photo always seems to over power the need to make something original.
I’m quite pleased with the result this time.
(I’ll try to get a better photo of it soon)
My first self portrait in years.
A friend posed for me. The plan was to get a strong drawing from the session then paint using it as a reference. The painting went well, but the drawing session took a bit longer than I thought it would. Planed for 1.5 hours… took 5.5.
The iPhone lost a lot of brushwork. Need a better camera.
Finished this a while ago. Had to wait ’till I got a better pic of it being that the iPhone doesn’t capture reds too well.
Painted the woman 3 times trying to get the colors right. I’m happy with it but I might revisit this one later on another canvas. I know I can do better.
