Portraits, More Portraits, On My Art Journey…

Hi, I hope All is Well with You All. Today, what can I say about today? I can say a Lot, but I can only Say One Word, HOT.

The weather in my State was HOT HOT, Very HOT. The Temperature was 40C. Agree?, HOT and Very Dry. It was very Bright out in the Sun, and You could not Breathe Outside. In the Early Morning I was Busy as the Usual, I decided to take a Sick Day, because of the Hot Weather. Late morning, it is very Cool at the Front of my House, so I sat in the Media Room for an Hour. I never have the Time, or inclination to sit and watch TV.

I watched my Favourite program, the House Hunting International, On the Life Channel, my Favourite Channel and the Food Channnel, are the Best for Me to Watch. I got an Idea at Lunch time, that for Dinner tonight I would take the Left over, Vegetable Mash from Last Nights Dinner, and make up Vegie Rissoles, and make up A Fresh Green Salad from my Garden, where Nothing is growing at the Moment. The Weather has been to HOT, and even when I water, the Soil underneath is always Dry soil. Makes No Difference how much water you Spray over, the Garden. In fact after Seven years of living at this address, the Spring and Summer weather does not grow, Any Fresh Foods. Oh Well, that is Life?…

Here we are, another week on my Art Journey, through time. This week, I have decided in Continuation of Last Week, to Show Portraits and More Portraits, which were made close to My Starting my Art Career.

In the Painting below, I used the Metallic Colour Pencils, 12, Faber Castells. The Idea came from Free photo stock, under Portraits. It was Art created, in My Unique Art Style and Completed in My Technique. I have these Colour Pencils for awhile, I thought I would try them out, and see if the Metallic Colours appeal to my Portrait Art Style.

I do like them, they are easy to Use, and I look forward to using them when I Portrait Art Create, in my Future Art Creations.

I used Colour Pencils in Particular to Create the Portraits, because I thought it was the first Medium I used, First Year in Primary School. I loved the Colour Pencils to bits, I used them the Staedtler 24 Colours, which I kept for Years, before Throwing out because they were, All Used Up. I thought I need to Move ON and On…

The next Portrait was a Practice piece I made in 2010, using the New Hard and Soft Pastels, by Mungo, which were a Newer medium, I had not used before. Previously, I liked to work in Pastel Colours. This Portrait, was from a Text On Portraits, made in Oils. Remember it is only a Practice Piece?

The Next Portrait is a Watercolour, taken from A Text, and only for Practise, to see how to draw Portraits, and the use of the Watercolours, I think they were the Artists Cotman Colours. This was made in 2010.

The next Portrait is made in Acrylic Paints, this Medium was New to My Art Creating, 2010. The colours were the Mont Marte–Matt Acrylic Paints.

The next Portrait was a Fantasy Painting, I was trying out the Soft Pastels, by Mungo, in 2010…

This Afternoon on A Very Hot Day, Today is Nearly Over. Remember if You have a comment to Make, Idea or Thoughts to Share, Thanky and Share, I am Always Happy to Hear from YOU.

Thanky for Visiting my Website this Week.

Portrait Sketches, A Still Life, A Landscape, on My Art Journey…

Good Morning a Few days late, oh Well that is Life. Other things always Materialize, and so we get to Choose what we Want and need to do. To be Honest on Friday afternoon I had to take my car in for Urgent repairs. This took Most of my afternoon, this is what happens when you get to Leave your home for a few hours, and then you Get held up for hours. I can tell you that in the Morning I was organised, I did catch up in the house, and then Sat, well stood up and Completely painted Four paintings for my Next Blog. I think we can Agree that in Actual fact according to us All, that Time is never Truly wasted, we just Carry on, regardless.

I am Happy to say Here we are on My Art Journey once again this week. In this Portrait Art Sketches, I was practicing how to use Colour shading and drawings to give an Attitude to the Portrait Sketches. I made Four sketches, over two Friday nights. I made them in June 2020, when in, Lock down Cov 19. The information came from the Artists Network, on Portraits Courses, Feed back pages.

In the Portrait drawings, I drew the Sections for the Shading areas, and then I proceeded to Shade in with the, Castell Classic Colour pencils. When I looked to see the Result, the next night, I realized the Four paintings were Unique, I had an Attitude response from the Portrait Art Creating’s. I Promptly, Labelled the Portrait with an Attitude, that I could see in the Painting. I wonder if You Agree with my Labelling?

This next painting, Still Life, I made in 2013, which was made on A3 size- Acid Free, Canvas paper. It was one of My First attempts Using, Acrylic paints, the Mont Marte, Silver Series, Acrylic Paints. These Paints were a Pleasure to use from the start, and Affordable at that Time in Place. I Liked the Colors and Texture then, and this day they are My Favorite, Brand of Acrylic’s. They are Easy to Use, and Give A Professional Finish to My Art Creations. This Still life, was taken from a Magazine photo. From which, I drew in My style and Coloured in My Unique Way.

This Landscape was made in 2013, the Painting was made on A3- Acid free Canvas Paper, made in Acrylic Paints. It was one of the first Acrylic Paintings, I Art Created. I think you can see that the Acrylic paints are used Well, in this later attempt in the Media?
