Reworked the eyes and hair also fixing up other elements in the painting. Am quite happy with my first attempt as I really wanted to see how I go with painting a beautiful face, will consider trying some clothes and more detail for my next painting. I believe the dolls face is the epitome of what man considers a perfect face since they craft it trying to achieve perfection.

The black and white layer has finally dried and I’ve given the whole painting a green tinge and some subtle color variance to the face and limbs.
I’ll probably need to rework the eyes and hair. Not concentrating on correct color or light with this painting, just practicing brush control and slight blending.

Using a tripod to hold up the painting, it seems easier to work on the ground. Keeping subject fairly simple, no clothes or anything detailed, just figuring out how to apply paint to the canvas how I want it. I remember art class 10 years ago having a lot of trouble to make the acrylic flow they way I want it too. I have to get use to working with out a CTRL-Z button.

Okay bought some paints, brushes, and a canvas. I saw an amazing print by Mark Ryden called fur girl the other day, have been out of touch with the whole art world so this is a first knowing of this artist. Fur girl to me is pretty amazing since it made me motivated enough to by a canvas. I previously kept telling myself I could probably paint if I tried. So now I’m putting my money where my mouth is and giving it a go. Well see if the first one turns out.
