New painting. Was trying some things I have been learning. Then the eagles said they wanted to come out and play. Now, I am thinking of making the waterfalls start go away and maybe put in water with some far away islands. And darkening parts of the sky as well. Early stages, it can go anywhere!!!
Bit more work. Still looks like coconuts.
So, it seems I am learning still lifes now. Probably a good thing to learn. My first assignment was eggs. I think I am going to do some more work on it, but here is what I have for now. It needs to dry a bit.
Working on people skills again. Just some sketches to try and improve my drawing abilities. People are really, really hard, but I seem to be getting better at them. Nowhere near where I want to be, but I keep plugging away.
Just did these acrylic pours to use for backgrounds. At this point, I have no idea what kind of paintings will go on top of these. Stay tuned!
A local photographer (Michael Hellen) posted a picture of a heron he took. I asked for permission to paint it and he gave it to me. The following is the progression of the painting as I work on it including Michael’s original photograph.
I was able to get a lot more work done on the painting. I need to wait for it to dry before I can go in and work on it some more, but I am thinking that it may just be a matter of some fine detail work. Maybe a bit of glazing in some areas as well.
This is the painting at this stage. I still have more work to do on it.
