    I was quiet for so long ~ I'm sorry...
    After I decided to try hairy brush painting, I was frustrated with my first trial...
    I've started learning with Holbein Ink, to discover after two weeks,that's the INK (as the name says!) not the proper body acrylic paint.
    You know what?
    I had bin the whole painting - because I realised why my "acrylic paint" is so waterish...
    I've done research then - what the paint, what manufacturer etc., to end up with oils!
    Yeah, lol ;)


    I'm about to share my first oil painting of my wife and nephew, who's turned 18th at the Christmas time.
    My wife had requested this portrait to make the very personal gift,even though I were insisting not to, bearing in mind the medium is totally new to me, so the whole painting aspect, brush strokes, brush types etc!
    She said - do your best :)
    I did, but I wish I could bin it too :)
    It's because I were learning on it from the start to the end, and I were correcting the failures on the go...
    Not to mention the hand painting the poem went terrible, as I'm not get used to, and have done it for first time too...

    Few days ago I've started new painting - the dog portrait.
    It's for my sister, and as usually I'm doing my best :)
    I will upload it's WIP below the nephew's portrait for you.


    Nevertheless dear friends ;)

    So I were enough busy with the family aspects,frustration, painting the first portrait in oils, and therefore I didn't want to share anything sad and upsetting with you...
    The painting is finished now, I had a good time to think about it too...

    It's good to see some amazing new work around too !
    I hope you were having great family time e as well so the New Year time ;)
    All the best dear friends for 2019 !!! IMG_18012019_165212_(650_x_900_pixel).jpg IMG_18012019_170111_(900_x_650_pixel).jpg

    Hey Artur, Happy New Year. The paintings have come out good. I know I can do a good portrait but I doubt I cold pull off one in oils like you have. Super well done.

    Great to see you back Pog and with some impressive work too!
    Your ability to jump straight into different mediums and produce some good work amazes me. I would have no idea where to start painting oils with a hairy brush. I’m sure you further projects will come on very quickly.

    Thank you Lee ;)
    It's kind words, but I were nothing but messing up with everything, and then correcting hahahaaa ;)
    I've asked my wife for permission to bin it and start once more, but she said she can accept it as it is already...
    She likes it though :)
    Yes, I know - I never liked anything too much that I did ;)
    Best regards !

    Thank you Simon !
    Lol ...
    I were spending hours and sweating buckles in search of what brushes, what they do, how to make the strokes, how to apply/blend the paint...
    Mixing flesh tone colours, then making the difference between the nephew's and my wife's flesh tone... Again my weakest point - the hair :)
    Lol :)
    Lots to tell about,and even more stress to not fail at the end.
    You've done some amazing piece as well Simon !!!
    Well done you :)

    I nearly missed this thread and what can I say other then you did a outstanding job with those portraits and if you didnt mention it was done with oils and proper brushes I would have thought it was done with the airbrush

    Thank you for nice comment James :)
    Yeah, it was meant to be done in two weeks,but I couldn't manage...
    I didn't know nothing, so I were messing up all the time,and wasted that time.
    The portrait were given just few hours ago to the nephew ;)
    Better be late than never :)
    I just needed some extra time to finish it, lol :)

    Actually I haven't rejoined the forum my friend - I never had left :)
    Just wasn't posting anything being busy with Christmas time and other things,and I couldn't share the painting, because I had no clue how its end up at the end...
    So I kept working on it, not sharing anywhere until now :)
    This is why I have posted this topic just to say hello to all you my friends, and to share the latest pieces :)
    The dog will be done soon as well :)

    I'm not airbrushing so I was advised to post my WIPs and posts over here instead of Work In Progress :)
    So I won't distract anybody with oil paintings sticked between all those amazing airbrushed arts :)

    Have you done anything else apart of the eye study yet James?
    I can't wait to see your progress :)

    Best regards!

    Hi PogArt, considering your work you're showing here, i think you're going to master oil paintings quite nicely. I admire you're moving from acrylics to oil, as i have come from the other way (after 15 y or so trying out oil i got fed up with it). Keep posting your work, we're looking forward to seeing more.

    You're showing your kindness up once again Franc.
    Thank you for encourage :)
    I'm going through confusing time...
    I've never liked any paintings with brushes.
    When I found out about airbrushing - I knew it's what I were looking for, just to realise after over a year,that I'm getting fascinated with something, I hated before?!
    Let's see how it goes.
    Beginnings are always frustrating...
    This is where I am at the moment.
    Thanks Franc, I'll be posting updates in here.
