A cute little canvas miniature oil painting this afternoon while watching art vids on YouTube from the sofa, well it is Sunday a.k.a. my most productive me-day of the week.
I love painting miniatures, they’re so much quicker and I’m accustomed to illustrating this small at work all day, but in watercolour not oil. This is my first miniature in oil and I loved every minute of it.
I’ve avoided licking the brush too, all’s good!
I find working in oil so much more satisfying and I don’t mind the smell, kind of like it really which is why I haven’t moved on to odourless yet. No doubt the toxicity of turpentine will force my hand sooner or later. Will add a few more highlights and finer touches once the oils have dried a little in a day or so.
The sofa survived.
Sent a batch of pictures off for printing yesterday, so have a delivery to look forward to this week (again) now off to do some illustrated notebook sketches before bed… actually no, I’m doing another teddy instead, sketches can wait!
Really rough sketch on canvas.
Blocked in, details to add later in the week. Need to get another canvas now, I feel there should be more Woodland Teddies!
