Hi everyone it’s good to be back from a bit of a hiatus in updating my blog. Been busy but glad to get a bit of painting done and finished with my latest work titled “Lady Shades”. She was so much fun to paint, I loved painting her skin colour, so warm and vibrant. Below are a couple of pics of her painting process. Sorry for lack of images but I just didn’t get anytime to get my camera out much, when I paint it’s head down and go go go as I am always on such a small time frame. I’ve started a new work this week and promise to take more progress pics and explain my process on the way.Above is my source images, you can see what bits I’ve chosen from each photo. In this particular work it was quite easy as only 3 images were used to make this mash up. Sometimes there are up to 15 images, a nose from here, and eye and hair from there.
The colours I used to make her skin were a mix of burnt sienna, cadmium red, ultramarine blue, titanium white and burnt umber.Am still bathing in the glory of having a new studio, check out my oranges on my orange tree!Painted with love,
Wolfgang and Rose xox
