Monochrome legstudy

Made this painting yesterday for use in the tutorials I wanted to complete.
Not entirely happy about the foot. Think I’m going to work on it  a bit further. Don’t expect I’m going to expand to more colors.

Copy a sketch to another surface.
Use charcoal to transfer a sketch on a canvas, thick paper or even a panel or wall.

What is important while painting realistic?
Form, tone, texture and color.
This tutorial is aimed at beginning artists.

Have a couple more brewing:)

Open acrylics order came in

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Had hoped this would come in much earlier, but today my order was delivered.

Did some doodling this afternoon with these paints to try them out, you can still see some of it beneath the paint tubes:)
Everytime I’m amazed that I can work on apparent dry acrylic paint to open it again:)

Well here is the paint I bought with the money I got for my birthday:D

Outdoor painting with oilpastels

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Last saturday I had an outdoor painting session.

Had hoped for the newly ordered paint to come in before hand, but it didn’t..
So I used OilPastels. 

First time outside with them, did a quick pencil sketch of this small building next to a farmhouse. Then added the pastel.

I tried to work quickly, but things took their time.
Didn’t have time enough to finish it.
Made some reference photo’s at he begiinning, so I can finish this one later.

Next time Í go for Oil Pastels I want a non white ground.
Really hate the white ground color even grey had been better as groundlayer:(

Here’s the result I came home with:Oilpastel work in progress
30 cm x 40 cm on masonite. Work in progress.
