Finally my Bowie picture is finished, I have been trying to work out how to best photograph my art, canvas has a great texture but it catches the light from every direction.
Finding an evenly lit room and a location out of any direct light is working best, tripod and timed shutter release so you get hand free works well too.
As you can see the wet ear that I was struggling with has dried out, I had some cracking that is down to not following the fat on lean rule, like everything, lesson learned.
I have been following a set of posts on Will Kemps Art school blog and having a go at my first oil painting, to be honest it’s my second but I abandoned my first as I really did not know how to approach using oil paints.
So painting over the first and following the structured approach I feel I have some sort of foundation to continue.
I have one snag not sure if it’s because I painted over my first painting or I just added too much oil to my mix I seem to have a wet ear, I am hoping time will sort this out.
Still I am pleased with my efforts and inspired to try again..
