BIG SIZE IS BIG!!
Alright here's another two journal updates compiled into one.
Artists from top to bottom are as follows:
- Jim Meskimen
- J.D. Hillberry
- nobody in particular, just random portraits of random people. Female version soon to follow.
- Albrecht Duerer
- Frank Auerbach
- Wilhelm Sasnal
The Rembrandt one was the first time I ever tried oils, and although they are so nice to paint with, fucking christ do they take forever to dry. That painting has been "drying" for about four days straight now and is still wet in some parts. I actually tried to speed the process up with a blow dryer, cause I had to bring the piece in to class, but after half an hour of me standing there I was so way fucking past the blow dryer and just give it the finger. Great shit for smooth blending and really nice, vibrant colors, but bad shit for speed. Still I really want to try it out on canvas some time.
The Sasnal one is acrylics, and all the other ones are pencil, with fineliner on the Auerbach and some charcoal on the Meskimen.
These are all size A5.
