Well so much for keeping up with this blog. Since my return from Ireland/Scotland, things have been moving pretty quickly. I have two commissions to work on and lots of ideas for new paintings. Here's what's in the works right now:
This is a pastel portrait of a sweet little redhead. I've never done a portrait in pastels, so this is a learning experience for me. I still need to do some fine tuning, but I think I'm heading in the right direction. I love painting red hair--so many color opportunities!
I'm also working on another piece, this one in acrylics. I'm getting used to working in acrylics and finding that I like them very much! It looks a little bowed, that's because I was too close with my camera and too lazy to set it up right. But you get the idea....
And finally, here is the last one, finished a couple of weeks ago, also in acrylics. I call this "Harry Coo"--it's a Highland cow. The photo was taken on a farm on the Isle of Mull, Scotland. I waited patiently in the mist and drizzle, for this cow to stick his tongue out. The photo doesn't really do it justice. It's very colorful.
