Two sketches to share today.
Poor Matt Smith was my muse over winter break. I had never tried a portrait before so I gave it a go and this is what I came up with. Not great but not too bad either.
As anyone can tell by the date of my last post, I haven’t had much time to paint and if I do I haven’t had time to update this blog with anything I’ve done with the last year. I have been working in pencil a lot and Tim Gagnon has started a sketchbook challenge, which you can find here. So, I thought I’d give it a go. Here are my first two:
Here is my attempt at sketching and outlining the second bird in my lesson.
A wash of my version of burnt sienna is applied to the background. After a couple hours of layering the paint here is my result. Life has taken over my time and I hope to be able to finish the background this week.
You can get an idea of that the birds are to look like and how the lesson looks by viewing Tim’s youtube channel.
Thanks for viewing!
So, I finally had time to jump into the first bird, a Black-Capped Chickadee, of my lesson. Honestly, I was impressed that I could draw the bird.
Next, was to give it a wash. I just used the paints I had on hand. Your “Walmart” variety. This is my version of Burnt Sienna for the wash.
After 4 hours, this is my result. I think I used too much pressure while applying the paint. My paint is probably too thick and I have no idea how to really hold my brush and …..well, the rest of it.
I am pretty happy with my first little birdie.
My next victim is the White Breasted Nuthatch. Thanks for viewing and your support.
