Breathe, 12 x 12 Oil
I've finally been able to get back to my art. There has been much drama and life has gotten in the way over the summer but now I'm back in the studio.
Portraits are my main love and I've been dabbling with those lately. The painting above is done in oil (still loving working with those) on canvas board. Here is another variation of that face (also done in oil):
Relax, 12 x 12 Oil
Same color palette was used for both. I love the softness that oils bring. Both are faces I've drawn just to experiment.
Then I discovered Pebeo enamel paints. Aach! I am really loving experimenting with those!
Micael, 12 x 12 Enamel
This is my feeble attempt at a portrait of a dear friend, Micael. The intensity and the sheen of the enamel paint is like nothing else. No need to varnish as the enamel seals itself. Yay!
Another variation of this theme:
Warhol Abstract, 8 x 8 Enamel
I had a contour drawing in my sketchbook of Andy Warhol that I did months ago. I thought it would be fun to paint it with the enamel paints. Love the different effects that happen when you mix the various kinds of paint. Here is a side shot so you can kind of get an idea of the sheen from these:
I am working on some more paintings with these paints. It's my obsession at the moment. Stay tuned.
