This portrait has been painted purely from life, but I'm going to use a series of photos to help me finish it off. As you can see it needs a fair bit of work on the background and the hands. I'm toying with the idea of toning down the purple in the background too. I will post my progress later.
Ooooooooooh the doorbell just rang and I've had a box delivered that's full of art supplies. I only ordered them the day before yesterday. What great service! www.artsupplies.co.uk if anyone is interested. There's nothing I like more than new paints and brushes. It's so exciting! I usually use Cryla paints but I decided to give liquitex a try. Oh my god! It's like a lucky dip! The box is full of shredded paper.
