So.....I have to admit that I was using the excuse of having the flu to keep me from finishing this painting. Maybe because if I don't finish it, then I never have to dislike the way it turns out? Tisk Tisk, Erica! The painting has since changed and I have to say, I do like it. I will update later.
Alright, here is a portrait in pencil that I have been working on. I am shying away from finishing the face because....I am overly critical of my art and it is hard to get a likeness! Maybe I should have a glass of wine before I draw or something to calm my nerves...? Then again knowing me I would spill it on the paper.
Wow it's been awhile since I have written. My latest finished commission has been a house painting for my friend Joanna. I do have to admit that painting pictures that are mostly about inanimate objects are a lot easier. Here is the painting in the beginning stages. Of course I always forget to take a picture after it's done.
