First layer done! Estimating a couple more layers on the skin and one or two on the rest. I also have a good many details I’m excited to add to the background and such. Can’t wait to see where this one ends up😁
This will be the most challenging painting I've done yet. I can't zoom in on the details like I could on my tablet. I've never done a painting with this much detail. Gradients and shadows and tiny things. #wip#workinprogress#painting#oilpaintingwip
One of my favorite pictures of me(well my hand) creating “Touch”. The original is still available on my website along with prints 🙂 I have a suuuper exciting painting coming up! Can’t wait to show you guys, but for now I’m gonna keep it a secret🤫😜
Gonna be taking a little break from painting and social media to just kick back and play video games and read🤓 Just feel like I need a reeeal break. So here’s a little progress on the piece I’m working on currently🙃
Update for ya. I’m working on a couple pieces at the moment🤓 I’ve been trying to keep a lot of the brush strokes visible in my pieces lately. It’s funny because for the longest time I didn’t like texture, or visible strokes in my paintings. I always wanted it super smooth. Now I can’t stand my paintings to be smooth😆 Anyway, should only be one more layer till it’s done!
Been a little quiet lately, trying to reflect on all the good and some not great, all the while focusing on what really matters in life. I strive to be a better person everyday and grow with the ups and downs of life never falling too far on one side. Thank you to those who have stuck by me and been genuine for however long or short of the years I've known you. I love you. Let's bring in the new year with something new, and big for 2018. HAPPY NEW YEAR 💓👍😉
Spent a few hours blocking in some colour tones on this first flamingo..and doing the first layer of the light burst background.. hoping when I get going it will look like fairy lights! It’s a really uplifting palette for a frosty day! ❄️
For me, in a painting there's always an element of not knowing how to do something, and an exploration of the best way to accomplish it. Right now the background is posing the question. "How do you paint overwhelming tiny details without painting overwhelming tiny details?" The first solution was to add some sort of texture to the paint such as sand, but I didn't like that. I scraped that off, and now I'm just using a palette knife. So far the palette knife is working better. "Floating" 35.25 X 40 inches Oil paint on panel work in progress by Brady Allen.
