In progress with a self portrait in oil. 4 hours in, I'm not quite happy with it yet, obviously it needs some changes but I still have a couple weeks to work on it. Also I stretched my own canvas for the first time! I like the buyancy of it compared to store bought canvases. #learning#artstudent#art#artist#portrait#portraitpainting#oilpaints#selfstretchedcanvas#inprogress
I really enjoyed painting this one! Poppy flowers reminded me of my childhood when I used to eat poppy seed rolls, which were so delicious!😄 Have you ever tried it? Also, you can DM me if you wanna order a portrait of your pet or have any other commissions! Check out my highlight stories for more info or ask me if you have any questions💖 •Framed oil painting 15.7×19.7 inches (40×50cm)
“The Upsherin.” . A trip down memory lane for me. This was Dani’s first haircut 19 years ago! . I still remember the emotional feeling of my baby suddenly looking like a “big” boy. . I was actually planning to go for more realism this time but decided to stop here . Something about the unfinished hair, bits of canvas peeking through and watercolor effect of the background feels right. In art you have to know when to stop, too! I’m finding that my best personal style tends to be soft and organic and when I fight it I’m not happy. Gotta go with the flow! Acrylic on 16 by 20” canvas. Happy Purim everyone!
