Small bakehouse acrylic painting first layers

November 16th, 2010

Dutch: Bakhuisje
This is a small building constructed  around an oven close to a farm house.

Made a sketch  when  I went Outdoor painting with oilpastels.
Now I am using this sketch as a base for this  painting on canvasboard of 30x40cm (12×16 inches)

Only the first layer was a normal fast drying acrylic, rest of the layers are going to be with the slowdrying Golden Open Acrylics.

First layer was a even coat of Burnt Sienna,
Second layer I worked with Titanium White and Burnt Umber.

Yesterday I have added the third layer with:
Titanium white, Burnt Umber, Phlalo blue, Ultramarine Blue,
Hansa Yellow light, Cadmium Yellow,  Yellow Ocre, Chrome green,
Red Oxide and Naphtol red

The ship Batavia, an ink drawing(WiP)

September 30th, 2010

Started this drawing about a week ago.
I visited this  full size replica ship in Lelystad  this summer and made a few sketches there.
Set up the main lines of the drawing in pencil, then got to work with pen and ink. Lots of details, it is going to be fun hopefully.

The Batavia itself is quite ornamented, I’m going to leave some things out.
The replica of the Batavia is an  artwork by Willem Vos.
I myself are not convinced by some of the details. So my drawing is going to be different from the replica ship.
I will also leave out some of the rigging to make the drawing itself better.
Otherwise it going to be a very cluttered picture:(

The size of this drawing  is about 32×45 cm

Progress pictures dog

September 15th, 2010

I worked on this drawing  for quite a while now.
But only a few minutes every time, carefully placing ink marks can be quite tiresome. A wrong line of Ink is very hard to take back..

But as you can see in the last picture it is almost done.

The eyes and tongue have still to be done. and some of the hair has to be darkened still a bit.

Well see for yourself:P

I’m back:)

September 15th, 2010

Didn’t post in for about one and a half month.
This doesn’t mean I didn’t do anything of course.

Made quite a lot of new sketches, I’ll post a few soon when I have the time.
Also made a few  designs for new paintings.
Unfortunately painting itself has been slow, no real news on that.

Did some work on a pen and ink of a black dog. I’will post some pictures of the progress shortly.

Thanks for your attention:)
