Painting – Etosha pan

An attempt at painting Etosha pan after not having used acrylic for quite a while. Perspective on bushes could have been better :p

Painting – first face painting

Today I went to my second class. Our teacher says ‘do what you fear’ so I decided to do a face. It didn’t come out as good as the first class’ painting. I was trying to paint the face of a beautiful young woman that had a petit nose, instead I seem to have drawn a man with a rather large nose, but at least it looks like a face, so that’s something.

I have split the painting into pieces that look better by themselves and end the post with the final piece.

Painting – First oil painting

After a year of wanting to do some art classes, I finally got myself to one.  I attended one of the http://www.berlinartclass.com/ classes and had a great time. We start off with a single colour in order to focus on forming the painting. It turns out that oil is not as scary as I thought.

Here’s the result:

Unfortunately I ended up with some weird lines around the wood behind the canvas. Apparently caused by the combination of a bad canvas and me brushing in those areas too often. I guess it is something that would be covered by colour once colour is applied to the canvas.
