Title: Justin with a KRABI flavor
feeling adventurous to try watercolor with even more mixed medium>>>
1. using charcoal with oil pastels for the Thai Buddha
2. painting Justin with very light washes and strokes
3. trying out a dash of gold acrylic to make the embellishments on umbrellas /cushions stand out…..
mmmmm, I do love experimenting…..makes the art journey less boring!
one interesting question a classmate posed to me…..
Q: Why do you keep painting your sons?
A: why not? smile~
after all this is my personal art journey and if I am going to learn how to paint good portraits, why not take all the tons of photos that I already own for references ?
Plus on top of getting the painting techniques/the perspectives and the composition right I do happen to like the extra challenge of knowing that I have to at least get a good likeness for my sons/hubby to pass my paintings….
Thanks for all the encouragement.
Have a great weekend ahead~
