September Acrylic Painting

So, to a new medium - acrylic. I've never been very successful with acrylic, but now is a good time to try retry OK, so a canvas of 1m x 50cm. A composition I feel comfortable with and a keeping to a similar technique to digital painting I feel comfortable with - lets see how this progresses over the weeks.

3 hours work... in acrylic

30 minute digital study - I'll be finishing this one too, but it's a great way of figuring out what I want to do next...

Friday 30/09 - DIGITAL Another hour or so...

Saturday 30/09 - ACRYLIC Another three hours or so... I kinda started getting the hang of it by the 3rd hour. It's a rewarding medium, but it takes a bit of getting used to.

September Digital Painting - contd.

Black and white study 2 - now the thing about this, is that it's my first 100% digital painting - no drawing and scanning, just straight into photoshop. Excellent! Still needs more tonal variation, but I did go from reference so it's now just a matter of perserverance.

September Digital Painting - contd.

This was an unfinished piece - it looks very dark, but actually, the technique really started to come together, so I've added as reference for myself... leading on to the next one.

So, yesterdays sketches...

September 2d Sketches - contd.

Figure Drawing - so, I went to a figure drawing session - severerly of practice, but loads of fun. I found the wine a bit of a distraction, but fun all the same. I've made cartoons instead of something a little more, um, fine arty... I'll keep going with it... 30 second, 2 minute and 5 minute poses.

Daily Sketches - felt inspired today, found a new corner of inspiration.
