This is where I am with this so far. Messy messy messy :-/  I can't really focus today.

C's portrait, round 2

I decided to work on this portrait again. His face is so much fun to paint! I bought black canvas for a change- I just love working on dark background.

I kinda suspect that I'll be entering a world of pain once C discoveres that I've used red straight from the tube to paint his hair. lol.

Oliver suggested to leave C's portait as it is. If it's not broken, don't fix it. I might just listen to that advice :-)

I've always wanted to paint C. The problem is he's not too crazy about the whole idea and he'd rather chew glass than sit down and pose for a portrait. So I'm using a photo instead. And it's only fair to paint him lighting a cig in the middle of the street :-)

I give up. No more.

I cannot possibly spend any more time on this. Mercy! No more!

Somebody remind me, why did I bin this?...

I just came across this photo. I started working on this sleepy landscape a while ago, but ended up getting too frustrated and tossing it away (well that's not what really happened, I actually got pissed off, smeared white paint all over it and recycled it as a palette). I really regret it now, when I look at it I can nearly smell the rain in the air that morning..

Eve being her leggy self...

I might be late for work but at least I'm nearly finished with this...

First of all, I've made those glasses for work and it was so much fun! They remind me of a mask my mom made for me when I was little.
Argh, the painting! It drives me nuts at this stage. There is something I really don't like about it but I just can't put my finger on it. I woke up early to finish it and just couldn't stop. As a result I'm late for work. Curiously, rather than hurry up, it appeared to be a good idea to go online..  I bet there is at least one group therapy for people like me within 2 miles from here. Anyway, I had no idea how messy this painting was until I've taken a picture of it. It definitely doesn't resemble me any more. I guess I'll have to put it away for the day and try to tidy it up tomorrow morning.
And, of course, none of my posts is complete without a bird sketch there somewhere.
