I have been working on a portrait or two just lately, but really needed a break! The break took me back to my all time favourite creature! Painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas, with love.
New style try-out
I thought I would try a different style – a little more abstract than usual and far less detailed! This is the result! This giraffe was great fun to do and turned out better than I expected!
The tiger too was a new attempt at doing things differently. Both good fun!
The giraffe is on 40 x 50 cm canvas and the tiger on 40 x 40 cm canvas and both are painted in oils.
I apologise for the camera quality – both pictures are more distinct in real life!
I am so new to watercolours! These are my first two real attempts with the medium. I am reasonably pleased with the outcomes. I have so much to learn about using watercolours though and I shall enjoy experimenting with them.
The Tiger I have painted in oils before, as you may remember, so it was interesting to me to notice the differences between the two mediums. I do still prefer the oils to paint with but that is probably because I am such a beginner with watercolours and oils are far more familiar to me.
I hope you like them.
Back to brushes…
This tiger looked so soft and cuddly and just like he was daydreaming. He has had a great response from social media which is pleasing as it means I must be doing something right! I hope you like him. He’s painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas.
I can hear you saying it – tigers again!! I can’t help myself. This one looks like he is just enjoying a little chilling out before starting his daily routine!
He’s painted in oils, on canvas board which is 40 x 50 cm in size.
Time to join him in relaxing now I think, while I contemplate my next project. I hope you like him.
