More Life Painting

This is probably the final stage of this painting. I loved painting her. It's a bit weird dealing with changing light when you're painting. First you can hardly see high-lights and then 5 minutes later the model has loads of high lights.

For home-work we had to paint a friend in Acrylic. Volodya(Vlad) sat for me really still (which I'm so grateful for), I thought I'd post this one up too so you can see the progess.
I think next time I'll do a full-figure painting of him in oil. <3

TCD Life-Painting

Been busy doing some painting in my free time as you can see. It's been really fun to go the second-sitting of the pose. I hope next sitting I'll be able to capture the model's face in the painting, she has such a great face for painting, it's very sculptural. God, now I'm sounding like the teacher....someone help me. LOL

This is a portrait of my friend Jurgen. I know the eyes aren't done so well but I really enjoyed painting this portrait. Usually when I draw I make sure that I capture the eyes and try to make it look like person but this time I had more fun playing around with the colours and expermenting on the painting.

Our next task for homework is to do a self-portrait in acrylic and anything else of our choice. I'll see if Volodya will pose for me our else I'll take a trip to the botantic garden paint something there....I was supposed to go to Howth and paint there but I don't think that's gonna happen.

..... and last a warm up drawing....I just liked this pose.
