Graphite on Bristol Smooth
This precious girl is the latest commission that I completed. The owner was so happy with the portrait and I was, as always, very relieved! Macy was pretty easy to draw and the only part I had issues with were her eyes. In the reference photo all the detail in the eyes were lost and what was left behind was two black circles. I think I pulled it off and gave her some gorgeous sparkly peepers:)
What I’ve been up to?
I have been playing in color again, well actually, I think color is playing with me. Not having much luck it seems, but I am going to keep trying and see what happens. I am in awe of artists who can pick up any medium and just go to town. It seems I’m not one of those artists…but I sure would love to be! If someone could recommend good instructional DVD’s of acrylic and colored pencil I’d really appreciate it…just please no books, LOL they are no help to me at all.
I have about a trillion wine glasses to paint. Not really a trillion, but definitely a bunch! And I’ve been trying to come up with some designs for those. I have about 7 patterns already, but I’m trying to come up with something fun. I have been tinkering around with a smart mouth woman, but so far I’m having trouble drawing a good line art.
I’m still reading…Alot!
Well, I guess that’s about it for me, exciting stuff, huh?
Be Well and Happy!
