Today I had just a few minutes to play...My husband dear is taking me to see Avitar, we had to grocery shop, and I'm doing his laundry for a trip he is leaving on...so...you know, the typical Saturday fare...Oh, and we had a picture session for Carol's 100 portraits...she needed sun on my wrinkly ole face...Here is one I told her NOT to pick...but it reflected my feelings after about 30 pics! (Yes...the older one gets the longer getting a halfway decent photo takes!! :))...
I find it interesting how DIFFERENT I paint in oils...Well, that isn't exactly true...I still stroke similarly, but with acrylics the edges don't blend and there is a lot of reworking. Now, I admit, these are from two different references...The Snowbird (acrylic) was from the side and in bright light, the newest little 4x4 in OIL (that I don't know what to name) (HELP PLEASE) is in a darker light...BUT, I wanted to TRY to apply what Carol said to me Thursday and see what it would do if I worked alone...So, I still have things to learn...but I'm thinkin the oil is so much easier in so many ways...This little 4x4 will be one of our contest give-aways when it dries!!
Let me know which one you find most interesting...and why...Experiments don't have much value without public input...:) Me, I'm a likin the oil...but my husband liked the acrylic version better...BECAUSE he liked the edges better...INTERESTING!!
