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
chieved results pretty quickly, I didn’t use lots of colours for this one as I had
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?
