    Painting favorite models

    This one is just for fun, and also a practice.
    Rough draft with my color picks...

    Just pushing paint around now!
    Combination of blending knives and soft brush, increasing thinner
    setting to produce the tint value differences.

    Hi Steve, nice progress That's the way I do: without any sketches I immediately block in and then I use as much colors as I can similar as you did in the first stage but I tend to blend the brushstrokes a lot more (that's the very first blending, the most aggressive one), then I blend with the "hard out smudge" knife, when done it's time to go back to the brushes a bit to touch up things, them go back with the knife again and then it's the turn of the frosting and blur knifes and finally I go back with the hard out smudge again to get a clearer picture. In the whole process some things are deliberately left rough and loose to keep the painted feel. Keep it going!!

    Thanks Andrea....
    Following your advise, and greatly appreciate all of it!
    I need it! You know my dark, half blended work. Which may be
    my natural style.

    Thank you too, Jmac....
    I'm seen your work! Beautiful painting, I'm looking for that farm with the horses!

    *Continuing on!
    Just more blending, worked on ears, mouth and eyes.
    Dreading really finishing hair and tweaking the eyes'!
    But, really enjoying doing this practice!

    Nice! You're getting closer and closer. If I may, try yo blend with some blur frosting the lips, nose marks and eyebrows, the transition between the flesh and those parts must be smooth. Her hair looks very promising, too. When finished you have to add a background, but you are a master with those and you don't need any advises. Keep it going!

    Thanks Robyn!
    Working hard on it, don't want it perfect, just nice!
    Thanks for finding me in here, it's lonely..lonely..lonely..
    Is that a echo?
    Take Care,
    Steve

  9. She's coming along so well - I think this is my favourite of yours so far. Gorgeous work. "You've done a man's job sir."

    My 5c though - I don't think she needs much of a background, but that might be because I've seen it like this, and it works so well already.

    Hello Andrea,
    Been busy at work, and getting ready for the Holidays.
    It's the getting "closer and closer" thats I'm stumbing on!
    And I felt bad about her image in the early stages that I posted
    in the gallery. So, I allowed her some time off, and posted a 'Not
    Done image' in the gallery, a apology for presenting her so badly!
    I get back to her next week!
    Again, thanks for all your
    help,
    Enjoy your Holidays,
    Steve
