Shades of Gray



The things I love about acrylics is that they dry quickly, meaning I can paint for long periods of time.

The thing I DON’T love about acrylics is that they dry quickly. When doing blending, I have to work fast before the paint dries and get all the shading done as fast as possible. Otherwise, I have to mix the colors and do my best to match what has already dried. It’s a pain, and pretty much a "get it right the first time" proposition. So, the work continues...

Twice in one day



Another update; I worked on John's eye, but i’ve stared at it so long that it’s difficult to actually see if it’s any better or not. A day away from it always helps.

More progress with Lana & John



I’m starting to get more excited about this painting as it nears the finish; still, there’s a little bit of wonky-eye going on with John Garfield that I need to fix. Since the original photo source I am using is a little on the hazy side, details are slightly hard to see. Might take a little work to get it right.

Two nights in a row painting...hard to believe. Hopefully tonight will make three!

Working on John Garfield



Did a little work on John Garfield last night; for the most part was happy with the results, and shouldn’t take too much to finish up his face to where I can be happy with it.
