Weekend Update

Still plugging away on this portrait of Julie. It’s slow going but I’m making steady progress. Not sure about the background still. There was a bit of bookcase behind her in the reference and I kinda like it in general. Still want to do something more abstract but might play with those shapes while doing so.

Weekend Update

I’ve been working on this most weekends, haven’t posted in a while though. There’s still a long way to go – haven’t decided yet on the background treatment and there’s a lot of detail in her sweater that I haven’t even attempted yet. I think the portrait is coming along though.

On The Easel

Haven’t posted in a while. I do have a couple of paintings going but I’ve really only been working on the weekends lately. This one has a few sessions in though and wanted to share something.

Still rough and a long way to go yet. Not completely sure what I’m going to do with the background yet.

Still Painting

I haven’t posted to the blog in a while…. I need to get some materials together to start a new batch of paintings.

I think this one may be done though. I’m pretty happy with it now and it passes the mirror-check. I want to let it sit for a bit though and look at it with fresh eyes. I worked on it two days this weekend so I’m feeling like I can’t even see it right now. Definitely close though.
