    Hiya ...
    I've just finished the "Curious" Red Fox.
    Even though I told myself off,to paint anything else than wildlife only...
    I just couldn't keep my word ;)
    I think I do like both, the animals and the people portraits.
    My over one year old niece Hana, is so photogenic!
    I couldn't resist, lol ;)
    This is going to be a great challenge to paint her in colour - not having any experience with flesh tones!
    I've started today with outlines, and have begin with the green underlay.
    Lets gather some experience on this piece !

    None details has been done yet...
    I’ve add the darkest tones to the areas,that’s nearly black.
    I’ve put some underlay on background too.
    That stage is making me wonder ;)
    Lol ;) EE8A991F-A002-4B0A-BBBC-F3C37AB1961E.jpeg

    as much as i dont like seeing pictures without eyes this is looking great so far . Using green is interesting - I have no formal art background so i was very surprised when i saw your first piece with green, but it clearly works and works well.

    Thank you for the education and for sharing your process . :)

    I like your comment very much - thank you for your time to share your thoughts ;)
    I’m a bus driver, I have none education regarding arts. I used to enjoy drawing dogs portraits with graphite pencils long long time ago...
    And that’s it ;)
    After many years I’ve started again to please my sister with her cat portrait ;)
    This drawing did trigger something, and I ended up this far ;)
    At the beginning of 2017 I started learning pastels, to start making my drawings in colour...
    This is how I’ve found Nguyen (if I remember his name correctly).
    This artist is using Verdaccio technique (green underlay). I went impressed seeing his arts, where the green base was working for him very well, and it was very unique too...
    My greenish airbrushed underlay comes from the pastels,where I were following Nguyen’s techniques...
    I’m simply fascinated by this creepy looking greenish base, and this is why I’m trying to use it on my paintings...
    It’s working,it’s unique, and it’s making my paintings kind of standing out off the crowd?
    The green colour intrigues, the people are asking questions ;)
    I think it’s good for painting and for me ;)
    Thank you for your honest comment ;)
