Rob

I thought the three ladies I painted and posted (see last two blog entries) needed some company.
The yellow-mustardy background was fun to do...

Alex

The next in my series of quick alla prima portraits.
It was fun (and a challenge) to get Alex's blond hair right, both color and shape... Still, a nice change to paint a portrait of a very fair skinned person, I usually have darker models.

Painting again - some portraits to show...

I haven't painted a lot in the last weeks and I definitely wanted to get back into the 'painting mode'.
So I did a couple of portrait paintings - or maybe rather sketches, they usually are rather quick and always done alla prima, in one go.
Once time has run out, the painting (by default) is finished - only very rarely do I change anything in a second go.

Here are the first two ladies, more portraits to come soon.

Sketch Nr 8 - Dad

A soft one, done in middle values.
I might work more on this one later, but for now it feels right...

Sketch Nr 7

More grayscale and shading - like using a soft pencil or charcoal.

Sketch Nr 6 - Handsome

Grayscale and shading. Pencil tool in the app "ArtRage" - tilted tip, light pressure, soft graphite.
I quite like the result.

Sketch Nr 5 - very loose...

Definitely loose, I'd say a bit messy. The joys of a 'moving target' and little time...
Back to the app "Paper by FiftyThree". The watercolor brush adds the lively color, and like with real watercolor the result can be quite blotchy.
