selfprotrait Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
once more, me facing a mirror, this time oil pastels and turpentine to blend at hand... (I should use cleaner colours but i can't help mixing and using dirty ones, haha). I was too tired when i did it so now i realized my eyes are in a different line but the idea was to also not add too much details. i tried to make it using shapes and not using lines i mean rather pictorial than drawing

a 20 minutes sketch in oil and turpentine, on paper with a previous layer of gesso. no details, just trying to quickly capture shapes and masses of lights and shadows.

sting portrait

sting portrait Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
an attempt to do a portrait of someone famous. colour pencils, not watercolour pencils this time, i tried some new ones. i need more practice, that equals TIME. later i'll if i can find who the rights of the origunal pic belong to, then add it here, as obviously i didn't take it ;)

another still life, first i sketched with grey and black oil pastel. on topd i added some colors, then blended with turpentine and continued adding more colors + blackand white or some complementary for the shadows. took me about an hour to make it (35x50 cm approx)
