15/100 I finished up my exercises from my acrylic class. These are a great improvement from my first ones! I am pretty happy with them. Now I want to apply what I’ve learned and make things a bit more whimsical! I think I’m definitely becoming a fan of acrylic as I get the hang of it and my brushwork loosens up a bit!
11/100 part 2…Okay, go easy on me 😂 Acrylic is not a medium I am super comfortable with. This class is more about color, not basic skill (which I don’t really have… but I really wanted to take this class!!)
👉Does anyone have any recommendations for good acrylic YouTube or Skillshare videos? I’ve drawn a lot of buildings when I was doing mainly urban sketching (with some watercolor) – but straight up painting them is a different beast!Continue reading
10/100 Yesterday was a sad day for me and my family. I didn’t feel much like creating. I chose primary colors, something basic. So I just did a quick blind contour of a lamp, which seemed appropriate because a lovely light left our lives. My mom’s dog also ended up breaking a lamp yesterday. I hope you’re all safe and well.
6x6in, oil on canvas panel. I gave my impasto medium a try today. I love the texture, but I think I may be applying the paint a little too sparsely yet for my liking.
I haven’t painted in a long time, but I did an encaustics class this weekend and got motivated! This is my first oil – an 8×10 finger painting on canvas board. I like painting small, but it’s hard with fingers! I may have to expand my canvas!
Here’s a little 4×6 inch in oil pastel. I usually use my blending stumps a lot for oil pastel, but I used my fingers a lot for this one and I like the soft effect.
I was trying for something in this one that didn’t really work with the low quality watercolor I was using and the water brush.
This was one of the more recent ones I liked. Quick sketch with a fountain pen and travel watercolor set.
I haven’t been drawing for a while – I’ve been writing more often. Most of these aren’t great at all, but they enabled me to at least get some drawing in, even though I was “catching up”, which isn’t exactly a drawing a day. But I’m trying not to give up!
