PAINTING BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH! Sleep deprivation!

So for some crazy reason I paint best at stupid o’clock (1 am in the morning) at least it is a Friday night! I would like to think I could stay in bed on a Saturday morning, but three ponies will not be happy with me if that happened.

So tonight I watched the first half of the DVD I bought Jean haines. Very nice DVD, concentrating on how different paints behave together, and not just due to the colour combination, as brand type can vary in behaviour too. I really enjoyed listening to the techniques, and proceeded to continue with my puffin, in an attempt to be more free ( although still not as free as Jean’s techniques demonstrate) one step at a time. I Also decided to start a dog, King Charles spaniel,Sonny,  and a

intended, instead I stuck to the colours that are in my photo. It still needs some work, eyes and nose especially, but I am pleased with the fast painting approach ( 3/4 hr for Sonny ) I wanted to post this pic, as I am still very much awake….1:42 am, paintings are both still wet! And unless I ruin it over the weekend?

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  4. Thank you, I am almost scared to start on the face, in case I can’t make the paint semi behave in the way that compliments what is done…eekk, well retail therapy today, I bought some 200lb cotman ( I could not afford arches 300 lb) plus some more paint in lovely colours.
