welcome to the group Teresa. i think flowers are always beautiful :)
Thank you for your comments. The rose is a digital image size 12" x 12". I forgot we have a bio page. I guess I should spend a little time there.
I am located in Los Angeles, CA. Practicing artist for 20 years. Formal education includes a BFA in Painting.
Roses and summer go together in my mind.
Image is 12x12 and it is digital. My formal education includes a BFA in Painting. I have been exploring the arts for 20 years.
Teressa nice didgi. Love the way the darks and rose colours swirl. Welcome to the group. I hope we some more of your work.
Jen C & C's always welcome
I had another go with Sandi's beautiful little great Niece. Still not got her likeness but closer.
in my sketchbook with 2b pencil.
Jen, excellent drawing of Amayn. Good job on her cute little mouth and tongue and little pudgy nose. Her eyes look good, too, although you may have exaggerated the curve at the bottom of her right eye (our left). I increased the reference photo to 350% and still couldn't see the details of the eye very well. You did a bang up job with the hair. I love her hair - the natural, wind blown look. Very adorable and well executed!
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome
Aw...Jen--You made my heart soft as I am looking at Amaryn's smile. This is a very good beginning. You've got the essence of this little girl who seems to enjoy life at every step of her little feet. When this is done it will be great.
C&C are welcome and appreciated.
jen very nice . The eye on the left looks like it is too low by a little bit but the rest of the picture is very well done.
C and C always welcomed
Hello to all, My name is Maronna and I am Marsha's Eldest Daughter ( Hi MOM). She has invited me to the forum so this is my first post. I started off with the solo bird and I am pretty happy with the body, but I think the head is a bit bigger than the photo.
I love the new picture posted of Sandi's granddaughter... I think I will give that one a try
Pastels an grey cold press
C&C ALWAYS WELCOME
Maroona welcome aboard. Love how you did the water but like mine the head has some issues. Good work.
Thanks...Yeah, it was pretty late and dark when I was working on it...I looked at it this morning and went arrrrg. I may re-do it later. For now I have been itching to do some watercolor and am working on Sandi's Granddaughter.
I really liked yours. I have trouble leaving the colored paper showing through in charcoals. been awhile since my figure drawing class
Maronna. What a pretty name! Welcome aboard. Your bio indicates that you are into music as well as art. You surely are your mother's daughter.
Except for the big head, you did a fantastic job on the shore bird. The feathers on his back look really good. The water is well done as is the reflection of the bird in the water. He may benefit from a darker shadow on his underside (belly). I'll really interested in seeing your portrait once it is completed.
Well at least you got to take a figure grawing class. I went to school in the bible belt (Arkansas) and something like a life drawing class was unheard of. Maybe some day I will be able to take one.
Thanks for the suggestion Sam,
I have to learn patience with water color. Waiting for glazes to get dry before applying the next layer. What a beautiful little girl.
I am thinking of trying to layer the pastels on the shore bird with an abstract kind of feel next time.
