Well am stilling learning about painting with acrylic paints. It been a challenge, especially the whole mixing paints to get another color. I thought that would be easy, but I used up more paint trying to get a certain color then using paint on the actually painting. I don’t know about you, but this seem a lot easier when you a kid.
Here are two paintings that I did. One is of Barbara Palvin which I think is my best one that I’ve done so far. The second one is of Gal Gadot. Almost there, the hair need a lot of work and happy with the skin tone, but it could be better. Well I will be shifting gears a little since world watercolor month starts on Wednesday. Am not giving up on acrylic paints just yet, just a temporary pause. Anyone else doing World Watercolor month?
I hope with all the madness with this coronavirus everyone is doing well and keeping busy as society has come to a stand still.
We all get excited when starting a new sketchbook, but do you also get excited when you are about to finish one? Well am excited that am almost done with my. Just under 20 pages left. I started this sketchbook 2 years ago, around the end of March. This sketchbook I used for drawing portraits. All of them are using photo references I find on the net. I hope one day I can start drawing people from real life.
When drawing faces I’ve notice that there are certain faces that have their challenges. The challenge is the shape of the face. Some people have like a roundish face shape that sometimes it difficult to get that roundness accurate. Others have that curve roundness around the cheek around. When am drawing that roundness area it look like they have their month stuff with food. Other times it the jaw area plus the cheek area that a challenge.
