Today I'm sharing two relatively new paintings with you. The one on the right (the lady with green hair) was a bit of an experiment. I was trying something new with watercolours, trying to free style it, I guess. I do a lot of portrait paintings, but I don't do them with watercolour that often. I'm not sure about this one to be honest, but I do like the colours. How do you like it? Do you think I should try to make another one like this one? I do want to make more time for watercolour portraits, but I have so many art projects, it is hard for me to find time for everything.
The other painting (the one on the right) is a quick fashion illustration of a blue swimsuit that reminds me of this watercolour painting of mine. Perhaps I'm repeating myself a bit? I just realized that I have quite a few illustrations of blue swimsuits. It would be fun to dig into this subject a bit more. We'll see. Lately I've been working mostly with acrylic paints, but I might do some watercolour paintings. Do you have a preference when it comes to a medium? I can't say that I do. If I had to pick only one, I would go for oil paints, because (for me personally) they have that extra special something, but I love exploring different mediums.
Finally, there is another portrait painting I want to share today. While I was browsing through my art collection, I came across another redhead. The medium for this one is oil paint on cardboard. It's been a while since I last painted with oil, I can't wait to get into it again. I love how this painting turned out, so as you can imagine, I'm pretty happy about not losing it during my move last year. I was kind of worried I did but as you can see I found it again. I'm not sure have I shared it before, perhaps I did, perhaps I didn't. Anyway, that would be all for today. I have a lot of new art waiting to be shared, but I thought I'll shared these first. How was your weekend? Are you looking forward to the new week?
