Yesterday I just picked up a brush I have had laying aorund for a while, but I haven’t dared using it because it is very soft and sooo nice…but I did it yesterday, I used it!
It is a brush with badger hair, I can’t remember which medium it was supposed to be used to buuuut I used it with oil colours and it worked perfectly!!
I continued working on a comission and then moved on to one of my own projects I started with ages ago.
Sorry for bad photos, but when the oils aren’t dried it is really hard to take a fair photo of it all. I think I’m coming back to oils actually, I like the fact that when I mix the colours I want they don’t dry like acrylics, though acrylics is really nice to use to base the canvas. I had another canvas standing around with a finished base and I started another painting with acrylics. I am thinking about using oils on the final layers, just to experiment 🙂
I am not really sure where this acrylic one is going but I guess I will find out soon enough.
Christmas break is the best, the energy is coming back 🙂 ❤
These might go into the portfolio later on ^_^
I really like my painting sofware, I use the Clip Studio Paint ❤
I just hit it tonight and went ahead with no sketch and a green surface and pretended it was a painting, like I usually do when I paint with acrylics or oil paint 🙂 I think I like this way of working so I will probably try out this a few more times during my winter break that is coming up.
I realise when looking at it now that I probably could have worked a bit more with the contrasts 😛 I will have to go back checking it out tomorrow again and see what I think. I did this kind of fast, I think I used like just above an hour to do it, so time-wise I think it is going better and better 🙂
Have a nice weekend ❤
My weekend started off with some after-work, during this pleasant treat I found my new fave red wine! *Thumbs up* The bad thing, it will be quite an effort to get hold of it for my own shelfs.
On saturday I saved my little sister, she had done something weird with her glue gun soooo I bought a new one for her and delivered it, I was happy because I got coffee ❤
The evening continued with a very nice datenight out and about with my bearded man ❤ we know this really good place just around the corner form where we live ❤
And besides visiting mom today I have been quite bored. I guess it is good to be bored sometimes…or something…so instead bugging my friends over texts I just went ahead drawing…which got me to inking and painting and actually doing a piece feel quite good about ❤
This might even get into my portfolio later on 🙂
I finished this piece which I started during the week 🙂
Yesterday when a friend came over she brought a gift for me ❤
I am in love ❤ Out of all brush pens I have tried so far this i the best one, AND I can refill it! It’s the Zig Kuretake Brush pen ❤
I had a drawing laying aorund so I tried it out and hten I washed some FW acrylic inks over since it was an underwater drawing 🙂
This was my first try with this brush pen sooo more to come later on, I did a few more small drawings later last night and those felt a bit more controlled with the lines and all ❤
I did it! I pushed throught he whole of inktober! ❤
I am already thinking of next year, I am going to make my own list or keep to a theme 🙂
I was brainstorming with a friend yesterday what could be the next thing..and I have been thinking about my problem with hands…. and she was like HANDSEMBER…
That could be a thing ❤
(Better version will be up later this week)
I am all into practising my hands, I actually found a way I think will work good for me to get the hang of the parts of the hands 🙂
No shadows and that stuff yet just want to get the hang of shape 🙂 I like the way of thinking and using the curved lines to split the fingers into different parts. I have made a few 20 something small practise drawings today thinking like above and there will probably be a few more tonight. Sometimes…..I think I am just very lazy, I just want to get it finished quicker than my brain is following and then it gets all crap.. I think I have to slow my brain down and let it take the time it takes!
Above is just a digital drawing, there was some time ago I used my wacom sooo perhaps there will be more digital drawings 🙂
