This week i had 2 models to paint. Have to admit painting young people is hard... but i exp with the portrait of the young boy. Tried to do a sketch with burn sienna on white canvas with no imprimatura .. too red for me and too white to start with colors... so the one of the women Ma Lo i did it with raw umber and a gray background. I will try next time to photograph each step. We have 25 min per pose and 3 hours for each portrait. For me is not enough. I need to learn and hurring up just to get something done is not worth it. So even if i wont finish will slow down and make sure i do everything correct!
I had the honor of painting one of my best friends! I know this dude for 3 years now! and well... I wanted to give him this Frans Hals look! With Glasses on!
I barely have any life... I am at school from 9 am till 8 pm... Working and so on! I have the honor of teaching at the school i have been studying! Learning at the same time I am helping Students! So yes I am done with the school but I am continuing! on my Big still life that i still havent finished yet and when that is done... I will do my own things, reach out galleries and.. Live my life through art... I don't want to be rich.. i just want enough to go through a happy life... And change the world around me... towards something good of course...
Anyway, 3 hours alla prima! Did this one on the 5th of February 2013! Also looked up my work during the period of me studying at this SARA stockholm school... So much work... And still.. more to come! : )
