So in an effort to remedy this terribly bad showing I decided to hustle up a quick post.
Now if you've read any of this blog before … in particular the drawing/painting/arty type posts … you'll understand that I feel "challenged" by the portrait. Which is exactly why I feel the need to keep drawing/painting/artying portraits. I am determined to improve … or die trying.
This also means I need to find myself fresh blood in the form of subjects … and nobody is safe … nobody … so beware!
I've been working on a few paintings over the last week or so … just simple acrylics on paper … nothing fancy. I never spend more than a few hours on a painting either … otherwise I end up "working" it to death … because I simply do not know when to stop.
Now … I have thought long and hard about sharing the results this time around. I know the sketches I did of the boys went down like the proverbial lead balloon with them. And the last thing I want to do is offend anyone else with an appalling representation of themselves.
But if I don't put it out there … I can't actually know if I got it right or not … so here goes.
Heartfelt apologies to the subjects if they are horrified by what they see … but if you like them … cool!!!
The gorgeous Vix …
the gorgeous Curtise …
and last … but not least … the gorgeous Sandra …
They're quick … they're far from perfect … but I do hope you like them … just a little bit.
PS If any of you lovely ladies would like the original … then just email me your address and I'd be happy to send it off to you … but HONESTLY don't feel obliged … I fully understand if you'd just as soon never lay eyes on it again ;0)
