Re: Wine for Two...

Added some acrylic and more color. I do believe it's pretty much done, and that the woman's face and arm look much better.

However, I'll have to let the acrylic dry before I add a bit of flesh color to even out the jagged-ness by the crossing of her arms.

Thanks everyone!

Re: Wine for Two...

Cory, I'm a bit confused. Are you adding acrylic on top of your oil pastels?

No, I'm adding the acrylic over the ink I apply.

Before I add color, I outline everything in India Ink. The ink is water soluble so the ops cover them fine. I attempt to leave as much ink visible. I then apply black acrylic over the ink lines.

I know you shouldn't add acrylic over ops, so I avoid that. I'm only adding acrylic over ink which I believe to be fine.

Re: Wine for Two...

For the most part, and if I do have to add acrylic over the ops which I tend to avoid, I've noticed nothing bad from this result. The acrylic hardens fine and needs to be scraped if I have to remove it. That was way I had issues removing the acrylic paint when I redid her arm.

Pat,
Would oil paint be better than acrylic?

Re: Wine for Two...

Hi Cory,
I like this painting and the intimate feel of it, as was said before. The correction of the woman's posture is good.
I really like your style, and I think your skills have improved greatly since you strated posting (remember your first cups of coffee). I think that in your last paintings, I almost always wished you hadn't added the black outlining in the end. I get that it's part of your style, but I think the paintings are complete and finished without it.
I don't know if it was place to say that, but anyway just me opinion, take it or leave it.

Thanks for the compliment, Tali. Yes, I think I've improved a lot. Actually making some money of stuff now which helps pay for supplies. I agree with the black outlining on some stuff. I'm trying not to add as much, and leaving the lines more haphazard and scattered.

Re: Wine for Two...

This is an interesting little painting. The green bottle against the red bg draws one's eye. Nice.

Thanks, Sammy. I agree it's interesting, and really tempted to do another. I also agree the green on the bottle helps draw the eye.
