Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good start into your week. I have been working on a couple of projects, and in case you were getting bored with the paint swatches, I thought I would mix it up a bit. Here is a work in progress:
This painting is half-finished. I am waiting for the layer to dry in order to apply thin glazes on top. As usual, some parts are dry and some aren’t. As you know I am impatient but I will preserve (note my spiffy new easel)! I am working from a reference photo but I wanted to paint a looser version of the original. I’m interested in conveying the depth of the beautiful and unearthly dark and light blue-green of the water.
I hope this one will turn out the way I imagined it.
Thanks for visiting,
Hi everyone, just wanted to post a quick work in progress:
Above, is my diy pochade paintbook in action. I’m currently working on a cow. All these farm animals are new to me😄. Wonder how many of them I actually will paint. You gotta admit there’s a certain charm about them.
I know I haven’t posted many group shots but, I envision these animals looking great as an ensemble. Right now, I’m still enjoying painting these. It’s not to say that I haven’t had my share of challenges! Stay tuned for the finished piece in my next post.
Wishing you a great week!
Hi guys, I’m trying to post more wip pics to show more of what I’m up to. Above, is a little piece I’m working on to look like fired clay. I love ceramics but I don’t have access to a kiln so I decided to try out different types of clay. This one is using Darwi classic air-dry clay, painted with acrylic paint and coated with UV resin. It is gold on the inside and violet/pink/magenta on the outside, with resin little feet. It is super strong and feels like stoneware. I’m still working out the bugs but hopefully I can come out with something I’m happy with.
By the way, I’ve been really into my succulents lately so I’ve been making little pots for them. This piece is a tiny succulent pot.
Hope your summer is going well, let me know what you’ve been up to 😄
