Brianna II Painting Finished

The photograph I was working from actually has her horizontal, but due to her hair as it is, I think it works better in a portrait format. Freckles are so hard to paint correctly and she has a lot. This is 16 x 20 Acrylic on canvas. Click on it for the best view. I also realized I signed it as if it was horizontal. OH Vel!

A Girl, A Bird and A Cat

I have done what I can do. I could still tweek and touch up, but most likely will not. Check out how I signed this one.....

Close to Done

Thanks to a little inspiration from Mandy, made a few changes to the cat. Finished up her hand and turned that big old tennis shoe into a plain white sock, I am close to finishing. A few touch ups around the eyes and hair, she should be finished awaiting a name. And need to add the whiskers.....

Adding some kitty....

Why a cat? Because cat's sell. Still has some work to do. Very hard to paint a white and black cat with a black background, without the cat looking to flat or too white.

Adding some bling....

my first idea was a Chickadee, but then realized you would have difficulty seeing the head, etc since they are pretty much have a black head. That is a problem with a black background. So we have a bird, big deal, maybe we need a cat somewhere here too....

Putting in a lot more detail. Scrapped idea for background. Will have to re-think just what is going on here.

8/11 Evening Work

Did not like the arm up over the item she is sitting next to, so I took her arm out. Depends on what goes there, will decide whether to put an arm in, or leave it mysteriously missing.

8/11 Work on Untitled

Having so much trouble with the shirt, which it appears it is now turning into a sweat suit top. In the end the folds will work their way out. The big question is what is she doing, and what and/or who else will be in the painting. I have ideas. The one I plan on going with, you will go "huh?" And yes her eyes are large and very white presently. I will adjust the color to a little more natural, and with her hair to hang down into them at some point, the largeness will be needed. I have to say her blue jean shorts/skirt is looking pretty ok at this point.

8/9/2011 Work "Untitled"

Blocking in more colors. Having a fit with the folds in her shirt.

New Painting Started

Finally finished the Hallek painting. I will post that some time soon.
Here is the new painting. Colors being blocked in and trying to get an
idea for what to go in the background.
