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...:)
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
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.
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...
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... :)
