oil painting 3… pensive girl

melancholy…

My third oil painting to share. I am reasonably pleased with this one… in a couple of weeks flaws that don’t bother me at the moment may become too annoying but for now I am enjoying the satisfaction of completing the painting course and making some progress.
I like the idea of telling a story with a painting so in the future, I will think about setting and props when I paint someone. Here, I tried to create a mood with colour and the girl’s expression.

Just a quick doodle today. New changes in my work schedule may alter how often I can update in the next while… a new job with lots of new things to learn – a good thing! but on the other hand it may be stressful and draining…

In the meantime, if you’re looking for something of quality on the web… Those of you into webcomics may have already discovered The Meek. Here’s a new fresh webcomic for those who are worried that the best ones (like Anders loves Maria) are winding down. Be warned that although there is nothing questionable about their taste, these two webcomics are both NSFW due to occasional nudity.
