    Hi guys ;)
    All I’m doing is layering the additional colours, to try to match the natural flesh tone.
    At this point my painting is different to the reference picture...
    I don’t like over whitened looking baby.
    I like her to be more warmly painted rather,than cold white’ish?

    I did masked the hood and the eyes, to not to unnecessarily cover those areas with paint...
    (SORRY JackEB!!! - still no eyes ;)

    I think I’m making you laught, all the experienced members in here, but I can’t do any better ;)
    This is my first colour portrait - I’ll treat it as a learning/practice piece.
    Obviously I’m working on it, and trying to improve at every each session...

    at least with the masking material on there she looks like she's got her eyes shut lol

    Its amazing how the green now just 'disappears' - an amazing technique, i'll have to play around with it one day.

    As for the members here (experienced or not) i dont think anyone would be laughing at you, we're all to busy picking our chins up off the ground.

    I checked your reference and you are correct, your colouration is different on the skin, but thats because I'd suggest the original photo was done with a flash and what you have done so far looks good to my very untrained eye, but i've looked into the eyes of enough babies to know that you are definately on the right track :)

    If you're not learning your not growing !

    Thanks for your kind comment - I’m happy you can get along to compromise the lack of eyes JackEb ;)
    This is my first “green” try on the baby’s flesh, so I’m very scared at every each layer I put...
    Regarding the ref.picture, it was changed by mobile’s app filter.
    I liked it at first,but as soon as I started layering the colours, I realised I don’t ;)
    I’m uploading the original for you,and for anyone else interested in, to let you see the face without any filters added.
    I think I’ll try to follow the original picture rather since now.
    Thanks JackEb - it’s good to know there won’t be too much laugh ;) watching the updates ;) 01581977-120E-4462-A8B0-81480ECD7B0C.jpeg

    It is a really interesting technique Pog. So far it’s working out great, I’m looking forward to seeing this one progress.

    Thx Simon ;)
    It’s the base layer only,though...
    If you’d check the ref.pic the eyes are more grey/steel like.
    I’m willing to make them closer to the ref., but I like to keep’em on blue side rather than grey ;)
    Cheers bro ;)

    Nothing else but improving ;)
    Adding,adjusting,detailing and so on,and so on...
    - I’ve found the lips as the most challenging!?
    It’s obvious I’m rubbish-I have to put much more attention to learn how to paint realistic lips ;(
    I haven’t done with them yet,though ;)
    But few times already I thought I failed!
    Now they’re looking so so, to me ...
    More improvements MUST be done ;)
    We going to Poland tomorrow,visit my mum for a week...
    The progress on this painting will be delayed ;(
    Thank you for watching friends ;) 43A047B7-4BD4-4A94-8F89-C4F9F3E15408.jpeg

    Well - it’s been a while ...
    I wish I was musicmacd ;)
    I’ve been one week on holiday to visit my mum in Poland, then after coming back to UK , the real life has caught me up again ;)
    Work, home, life , bills - I lost the motivation to carry on this painting ;(
    I’m back today to it ! ;)
    After two weeks day by day of work, I’ve finished earlier today, so I’ve been happy to get some painting done ;)
    I have started marking the hood’s texture (fur alike) at the very bottom, and I’m aim to go upwards.
    Weekend off - lets move it on ;)

    Hiya friends.
    I’m experiencing loss of motivation...
    I were running my website for nearly two years, it’s cost me nearly £400 throughout - I was told it’s very low cost, I know - but it’s a lot for me, especially if not making any profits of it.
    No prints orders, no nothing.
    Few days ago I decided to shut it down...

    To be honest, I’m having more interest on FB art page, and comments plus commissions sometimes - for free.

    Maybe I was too busy in my mind,regarding mentioned decision, maybe too much was happening around my private life too - I just had hang out for a while with this portrait.

    I’m back,though ;)
    Enough of laziness - lets get it done, lol ;)
    I’ve been working today to shape the hood’s fur texture,I were slowly building up the body of it.
    The eyes still to be done, the nose and lips just little bits to shape it nicely...

    Thank you for watching guys. C8E8CFF2-D548-464F-81E4-20186B49E6C7.jpeg
