More art lessons or continue with self learning~ michellechoongkhoo

Recently, my arty farty MIA classmate, invited me to join into a class on portraiture.
I was so tempted but alas timing clashes.
And truthfully the prospect of weekdays morning to rush into KL's CBD district does sound sane to retired slack souls !

So I guess I shall resort back to plodding along, trial and error and referencing from other artists .
Thus it was that Jon's eye catching selfie shot caught my eye...
As they say, good art starts with fab good stills.
Aha,  this dramatic photo in my opinion fits the bill!

Oil painting is definitely not my first love. 
As I plodded along I started to remember why I always defer starting on oils and why there's all those incomplete pieces sitting in the archive box! 
But as with any labor of love, the special meaning of the piece kept me focused and determined to complete this one! 
It is going to be a long process.... 
Stay tuned
