January 2019, Painting in Acrylics

I spent the last week of January on the portraits of two writers, Mary Oliver and Virginia Woolf. The Mary Oliver one is not finished, but the Virginia Woolf may actually be finished. Which is a nice end to January 2019.

I’ve been watching a lot of videos from Yupari Artist on youtube/ . He is mainly an oil painter but I have learned a lot watching him paint portraits, in case you’re interested in that sort of thing.

Hello to Paint Party Friday and other blog friends! Thanks for dropping in!

    Excellent idea . . .recommending the oil painting, I don’t paint in oils, but always watch Bob Ross . . .lots of good tips from them. The Virginia Woolf portrait is EXCELLENT. Thank you. Blessings, Janet

    Love how you used the green as a base, it’s always a fabulous way to help balance skin tones when there are so many colours within our faces. Both fabulous whether finished or not..
    Happy PPF Tracey
