Happy accidents



Pin It
I decided to rework last Thursdays result of life drawing class.
Almost threw it away when things went from bad to worse but when I scraped things down with my palette knife some happy accidents happened and I decided to rework certain passages.

Always fun to paint scruffy looking bearded guys. Woman too I guess but I don't see many bearded women..


"Happy accidents", 50x65cm oil on paper. Original available

Ze zijn er wel hoor Erik! Vrouwen met een baard. Maar of dat nou zo charmant is om te schilderen??? Jou portret is geweldig. Lekker ruig!
Goed nieuws: Ik ga me aansluiten bij de Amateur Kunstenaars Emmen, afdeling model schilderen en tekenen! Heerlijk, ik heb er nu al zin aan:)Groetjes:)

Hee Renate,
Wat leuk dat je ook gaat modeltekenen
Je leert er zoveel van en het is zo leuk om te doen
Veel plezier !

Your portraits are really expressive. Well done. I think facial air is really tough. You captured the look and even the feel of it.
