Waiting for the paint/layers to dry is difficult for me.
He's not finished, and I'm not sure he will ever be.....he needs more 'work' and
I'M NOT A PATIENT PERSON!
This is my attempt from the class
The Painting Techniques of Anne Marie Grgich (Portraits)
We were supposed to work on six at once. On cradle boards. I decided to try it first on watercolor paper so as not to ruin the cradle boards. And I cut it down to four instead of six which then turned into this ONE!
And we see how THAT's turning out......LOL.
I say I learn something from every class I take. I think what I learned from this one is I have even LESS patience than I thought.....
We’re supposed to be painting on cradle boards (which scares
the hell out of me for some reason) and I wanted to ‘practice’ in my sketchbook
first. Plus I’m not sure I want to make them like everyone else. Husband says I
should because it’s a class and I need to do what the teacher instructs us to
I, ever the obstinate one, want to be different……go figure!
I have to say I like the way she does profiles (which I have
trouble with) so I did copy that. Her style is very ‘outsider art’ and VERY
busy. I just don’t seem to be able to make my portraits quite that hectic. But
I think I did loosen up a bit à la Picasso…..so that’s good, right?
Every technique you can add to your arsenal is a good thing!
