‘Midsummer Murders’ – just riveting enough to stay awake for…or maybe not…My victims remain unimpressed with my portraiture efforts.
“Accomplish the great task by a series of small acts.”
The last week of my portraiture course. A single sitting in acrylics.
I’m definitely hooked, so watch out friends and family… I’ll be looking for victims… um I mean sitters!
Gripped as Eileen discovers Pat Phelan is the murderer in tonight’s Coronation Street…
You know it’s going to go well when you turn up half an hour early for your course and it takes you 10 minutes to realise.
Off to an impressive start, I proceeded to spill an entire jar of thinners and an entire jar of coffee all over the floor.
As well as all that, I also managed to finish portrait of Finlay, so it all worked out in the end.
Going to avoid jars for the rest of the day though!
A bit of Portraiture practice today, straight down in pen and wash.
Sketched my nieces in super quick sittings, whilst they took turns to make a cake. Baking is a very serious business!
Working in oils this week, with a new model.
By the end I looked like Mel Gibson in Braveheart. Note to self: less paint on me, more on the canvas.
Darks and mid-tones coming along. Next week those tricky lights!
