Polar bear - in progress



Pin It


Lightened the whole background to push it furter back.
Some more detailing on the bear, softening edges here and there, warm vs cool, and changed the eyes a little.
Foreground still needs some work.

Polar bear - in progress

Babysteps..
Worked on the lighting on the bear and on the background to get a more foggy feeling.
This turns out to be a hard painting to photograph because of the glare and the subtle colors.

Polar bear -in progress Step03



Pin It


Still working with Chroma Atelier interactive acrylics. Starting to get a better feel for the paint. It's nice that you're able to blend the paint after it is dry to the touch by just spraying on some water or unlocking formula.

Gouache study 't Weegje



Pin It
I did this gouache painting in 2005, haven't painted much in gouache since then but after some recent posts by Nathan Fowkes I decided to give it another try.




It's tricky to control the wetness of the paint and to try not to lift the previous layer. I need more practice but for a first try after so long I think it's not too bad.



't Weegje, gouache on black W&N paper sketch block. 16x9 cm (6.3x3.5)
