Print of Portrait – Bogart in Pencil

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

A few days ago the print arrived. It’s a copy of the portrait of Bogart in pencil which I drew some time ago. You can view two of the photos I took of the original mounted drawing and the print next to it.

Next stage of Horses in Oil

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

So I have blocked in first layer of the background and worked quite a lot on the cameraman. Next stage will be to paint the next layer of the horses in the foreground. That will take some time to do since it’s a large painting, but I will do my best to complete stage four next week. This photo is not a good representation of the actual colors of the painting, the lighting conditions here in the studio are not the best at the moment.

Second Stage of Horses in Oil

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

It has been quite some time ago I posted any news on the huge oil painting  I’m currently working on. It’s because I drew the portrait in pencil of Bogart in between and after that my daughter got sick. She was home for over a week and that was pretty frustrating, surely it’s easier when people don’t have any children when they try to run a business at home :). Well, nothing to do about those things… but in Monday I finally started to paint the oil painting again. It was a long time ago I blocked in the entire canvas with a thin warm color, so it really had some time to dry completely.

After that, I painted all outlines once again and blocked in the horses with the first layer of paint. Tomorrow I will block in the background and that will be fun, so I can’t wait!
