This was done on a stretched canvas with acrylic paint, a piece of napkin, and a flower cutout. I'm glad I was able to finally finish this face.
Well I hope you are all having a super productive weekend, stay posted for my faces coming soon!

Not too happy with this face today....I'm thinking of putting wax over this to see what I can do with it. I'm liking this challenge because its allowing me to try out different technics that I usually wouldn't try. Even if I don't like the end result, I'm happy to be painting.

She's super nice and teaches us so much in the little time we have. Her paintings are amazing! She did this beach scene painting from a vacation photo and its so good. The ladies in the class are really nice and everyone's experience level is different so it's cool to have such a mix of talent in the class. The first week I chose a picture out of a magazine, it was a photo of someones oil painting. I thought it would be easy but I was wrong lol, but thanks to Sharon's guidance, I was able to really see how things are broken down.
Here is a pic I was going off of
and this is my finished piece. What do ya think?
Next week is the last class for this session but I'm definitely going to sign up for more. I think the more I learn, the better I will become. I want painting to be my source of income, I cant imagine going back to a desk job that I hate and wasting away any talent I have. I have a long road ahead but I'm determined to make it happen!!
Update: 2/11/12 I started a new painting in class, im doing a portrait!! eeek!! I'm a little overwhelmed but again, my teacher helped me so much. So im working on it all weekend, ill post pics later.
Oh and my grandfathers bday just passed on the 5th, I never know what to get him and I finally got him something he doesn't have, an art set :) He sounds super excited to start painting, he said its something he has always wanted to do and im glad I got him on his way.
Enjoy your weekend!!
