Well, Big Eyed Fiona has stuck. That's her name.  I'm going to start another painting next week. I've also got my art room set up now, and found a few paintings in a box that I started on, but never finished. That is my next project, to finish them one by one. I'll post the first [...]

Final touches

By | October 18th, 2007|Work in Progress: The Lab|

I'm going to do the final touches tonight. I used a very light yellow glaze in the backdrop area to pop it out a bit more. New name: Big Eyed, Four Toed Fiona and Her Peacock Feathers....Maybe a new name will come to me. Xine, from Chicken Scratch suggests a goddess like name, maybe she's the [...]

Acrylics Class – Painting 2, – 3.5 hours

By | October 16th, 2007|Work in Progress: The Lab|

I've applied paint for another 3.5 hours. Some bits need more work like the leg, and the drapes - I think I liked them better 3.5 hours ago. Hmm. Good thing I'm taking photos, it's the first time I have recorded along the way. The photography is definately distorting the colours. Will try to take [...]

Arcylics Art Class # 3

By | October 11th, 2007|Work in Progress: The Lab|

I had my third class this week, and I really like the assignment. We learned about split complimentarys, and we were asked to choose a famous piece of work, then interpret it in a post-modern style, while using split complimentary colours. I chose orange and green, so my splits are: yellow-orange, red-orange, and green-purple, and blue-green. I've [...]

Little Bun – Outside of art class

By | October 9th, 2007|Work in Progress: The Lab|

Hi again, This little piece I'm working on outside of art class. It's heavily inspired by a print I found at a garage sale. I'm using it to teach myself how to paint faces. I call this one Little Bun. I still have more work to do on the flowers, but I am posting my progress so far... I discovered the artists name [...]
