Speedpaint video "Secret"

I didn§t realized previously that I was recording the progress of my digital sketching...:)
I called it "Secret"...



Value study

I saw nice photo in a catholic calendar and I made this acrylic value study. Used just burned umber and 24x32cm cardboard...
Nothing fancy, I just wanted to share it...



Some recent Digital sketches

Just a mix of digital sketches done for fun and to practice the technique...


Digital painting "China"

I was experimenting a bit with different technique than usually. I saw this somewhere on youtube and it was demonstrated by some guy from China. These smooth colorful portraits are quite typical for these manga Chinese guys... :)
It was just one evening session so it is not very detailed and definitely some space for improvements.
I just wanted to check if I understand and I´m able to replicate...:)

Done with my Huion tablet and CS4  



Video for "Blueface" painting

Here comes the promised video with my painting process when I was working on the "Blueface" painting.
It is speed up  8x.

Enjoy and let me know your thoughts...


Acrylic painting "Blueface"

I had some free time this weekend so I made this quite small acrylic painting. There was a reference photo used as an inspiration. I really don§t know how exactly is this type of butterfly called, so I´ve created my own name - "Blueface" :)

This was the first session where I has been using the Mastersons Sta-wet palet - which I bought in US and bring it back to Europe ... And my first impression is really good. I like the palet paper, very useful.

Check some of my photos, there will be added also video with the painting progress - as I was recording my work. Still need to process it and share it online on youtube... soon, hopefully

Painted on artistic 24 x 32 cm cardboard 400 g/m2, varnished with glosy varnish and signed


 framed :)

my palet


Acrylic abstract painting "Equalizer"

Here comes the biggest traditional painting I made so far...:)
It was reworked several times, I´m still not fully satisfied with some aspects of the result but I´m not able to do it better because of missing skill and experience. Need to learn some ways of color application.
No video and no work in progress this time.

Acrylic colors on 50 x 70 cm stretched canvas




Digital sketch "Detective"

Quite quick digital sketch form painting hangout... I was interested by the reference picture, so nice colorful light sources... :) It´s most probably screenshot from some movie, but I don´t know from which one...

CS4, Huion tablet



Acrylic abstract "Turtle"

I was experimenting with acrylic paint today, small format of my paper sketchbook and limited palette of baseline colors. It was fun but no astonishing results ...:)
Here is one pice I quite like... at least ... :)
But now I´m more familiar with the technique, so maybe we´ll see some bigger and nicer painting soon ... 



Digital sketch "Kristy"

Digital sketch after some time. I don´t paint children usually so this is definitely an exception. I´m not very happy with the face and especially likeness,  but I like colors and the final effect... :)

Done with CS4 and Huion tablet
