Not too much today! Philadelphia Fine Art

I started and finished a whole painting in one day – but can’t take photos until tomorrow (too much glare.)  Here is a super sneaky sneak peek, featuring the gorgeous Sophia.  It’s very red.  Red is the colour of passion.  She’s super passioney.  It just makes sense.

I also need to photograph my finished portrait of Albert once the blacks lighten a bit.  Hopefully that is tomorrow.

Have a wonderful rest of Thursday!

Sketches – Philadelphia Fine Art

Every time I do a painting I do a sketch first.  Sometimes it’s very rough, other times it’s extremely detailed.  For the Jumeaux series, most of them are pretty rough as I am very familiar with the subject.  Just thought I’d share a few of them with you (some I’ve posted before)

      

The lighting is very uni-directional in my studio at night as you can see.

I finished the portrait I was working on and shall photograph it tomorrow (possibly Friday as the black paint should dry quite light and needs to wait til then so it’s all consistent 😉  Have a great evening!

 

“Portrait” progress update

I’m working on a few drawings to post, in the meantime here is the progress I’ve made on my portrait.

ImageAs you can see, my model is wearing an Amazing Spiderman tshirt.  It’s a cool shirt.  I feel good about this.  Real good.  I should be finishing up by the end of tomorrow.  I stayed up late last night putting the face in and had to kind of redo it today.

Also, I sold this portrait today:

Have a wonderful rest of Tuesday!  See you tomorrow!

This is the third in my series of 5.  I just finished number four today, but am not able to get a good photo of it til daytime (too much glare from my lights.)  I really went wild with the feathers here and I am pleased.

Ok ok this blog is “Daily”.  And by that I mean “Weekdays only and some weekends at my leisure” 😀

Today this drawing,  “Poise”, was sold on e-bay.  If you are considering something, I have my painting “Passion” ending tomorrow morning.  I recommend bidding before someone else does so you can get the incredible price.

Bid here on “Passion”

I have just finished a piece in my Jumeaux series, but have to wait until daylight to photograph it without glare (or with less glare, anyhow.)  I will definitely put it up tomorrow (and earlier, rather than late like I normally make my posts) 🙂

Graphite on newsprint, 4×6

This was my sketch for the painting “Lost in Passion” that won the contest in February.  I paid attention to my layout and composition as well as keeping my values restrained, while still adding detail.

$30

And a glarey sneak peak at my next painting in my Jumeaux series, which should be done on the morrow:
