Hello everyone. Its freezing cold here today and trying to snow!
My news: Photo 2:
I tried out some acrylic glazing for the portrait 'Blue hibiscus'. The girl was inspired by a copyright-free photo on one of the Facebook groups I joined. I didn't get a good likeness here. The glazing technique in this work was not a big success.
Luckily, I can see ways I could improve, for example, by using stiffer brushes in the under-painting stage to give a rougher livelier effect. I got a tad frustrated with the number of glazes needed to bring colour to the grey under-painting!
This week Susie managed to jump up onto the top of one of the bookcases in the computer area. She used my desk to jump up. She was looking pretty pleased with herself at the end of it.
I hope you have a great weekend...whatever the weather!
Bye for now.
