Two Hundred Sixty-Four

image

Currently I am working on two portraits of two different Pugs for a friend. Although this image definitly resembles a pug it does not look like his pug, so I guess Ill try again tomorrow. Please take that into account when looking at the images many sections were left in their initial state as I suddenly realized this pug was too fat! In the meantime, enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Three!

Its Bambi! not really, but I must say this little deer came out rather to my liking. I am amazed at how painterly it looks considering I have a strong drawing background. I’ve always been told I draw with a paintbrush but I would say this looks painted not drawn! The one area that bothers me is that the face looks soooooo structured or skeletal, that has to do with the sketch I did prior to the painting as my reference though. Next time I’m drawing less underneath to prevent this outcome.

Two Hundred Sixty-Two!

This is not my favorite, but I like elements of the image. It’s hard to look at this and feel accomplished. I will say that I am as usual a fan of the shapes but not the size relationship or the lack of variation in color. I need to get a better mixing pallet because the one I am currently working on is meant as a travel set, not the stationary at home set. What I find this means is that I have a very limited amount of space for mixing colors so I tend to stay within the same color range regularly.  A simple fix maybe… maybe I’ll just steal a kitchen plate! Enjoy
