Here are some things I’ve been – and am still – working on since I last posted.. I have discovered that trying to paint leaves is tedious as well as difficult.. so is painting people.. cats.. etc. etc 🙂
I’ve recently been revisiting portraiture. The following work in acrylic is based off a faded photograph – messy easel provides a sense of scale.
Final piece (1m x 0.5m). Clay, canvas .. and a whole lot of glue.
The following is a work in progress. I’m trying to adhere sculpting medium to canvas which admittedly is trickier than I thought.. never mind realizing I could use some instruction in equine anatomy. However! It’s been an experience making this, as sculpting (for me) can be a highly finicky and detail-oriented, as opposed to painting which is a lot more free-flowing and fluid. I’ll post the final when complete. It measures roughly a metre by 3/4 of a metre.
This small piece is made of air-dry clay.
I made this some time ago using acrylic and a flat canvas board.
