Well, where to start after so long?! The journey with oil painting continues. Still so much to learn. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it feels so hard I wonder if I should throw in the towel. It's a rollercoaster! After my last post, struggling with Kpop portraits, I found cats easier. Short hair dog not so bad. It's really all about having the right brushes to match what you're trying to achieve I was invited to exhibit these, above, locally which was a huge boost and proof I should keep going with oils.
Blogger hasn't improved one bit since I last posted and trying to get every paragraph to align in the same way continues to be a struggle - some things never change! I can't insert any text between the next two photos!
Since I last posted the world is such a different place. This was painted not long after Covid broke out and we were all in lockdown. Portrait Artist of the Year went online and every Sunday hosted a live portrait painting session matching a portrait artist from the show with a celebrity and invited the public to join in. I used a new technique to get this finished in the three hours and absolutely loved doing it. Picking out lovely colours and splashing them around was a joy! A new found freedom!
