So last week I started this lion. I used different photos plus documentaries of lions and so on... God I wish i had one in front of me ( behind bars : P ) so i can just paint him from life! It took me 3 hours when i started this one... and worked a bit on it today for like 30 min to do this and that.
I really love the result... and I love alla prima painting.... Searching for your voice... and appealing to people's taste to make a living is one hell of a decision hehe
Also how my figure pose is turning out. Just a detail. Should have taken a full photo!
You can also see.. that when painting the lion... the canvas shows. I need to experiment more and just get some work done and reach out there!
As I wrote on Facebook... What is art and what does Art stands for?...
Overpainting... loose painting,,, abstract painting... from life/photos... what makes a good painting good?
I am looking, as someone dear to me said, for my voice... and i am starting to know what i am good at and what makes my painting stand out... I can't say that yes this is how i want to paint.. no. I actually can't say that i am happy with this one...
But i have started a lion that i really like that took me 3 hours... alla prima, strong accent strokes and so on. I feel that's what i want... something more. Atelier Stockholm and most Ateliers.. teaches you how to be tidy and patient and so on. From spending 2 months on a painting now i spent 3 hours to 3,4 days. Sometimes i have to spend more time... sometimes it just doesn t need more work.
For ex. The eye of this horse... i spent 3 hours just to capture something... some life. Miles said that it looks like one of those emo horses! meh winter ... Sweden... HAHA! But anyways
not sure how long i spent on this but i will give it a rest and go on. I feel i am getting there!

This week i have been working on my Horse portrait and a little still life of a bird! It took me almost 3 hours I think to do this little 33x24cm painting of a bird.
I also want to sell it! hehe! So if you are interested the painting will cost
5 000kr ( Sek ) + shipment depending where it will be sent!
So I posted on facebook the horse thinking it is done... but My teachers told me that if i want my horses to look unique and not like all the horse paintings you see on the net... you need to find something to give them power... so i have been trying this and that ... but still not there! it has my own touch but.. still not there
How it looks now.
