First painting

Well it's still black and white but here is my very first painting. I have only worked in dry medium like pencil and charcoal up till now, I decided to try a little paint. Anyway hope you like it it's 9.5 x9.5 acrylic.

Re: First painting

I like that it is in black and white. It makes more of a statement especially with the very dark values.

Re: First painting

I agree. The tonal qualities are haunting, evocative and you made a beautiful piece of art!

Re: First painting

Doesn't look like your "first" - impressive!

Re: First painting

For a second I thought it was George Michael. Well done, it is beautiful!

Some questions ... Was it done in one sitting? How did you transfer your sketch to the canvas? Did you work from a photo? Which colours did you use?

Re: First painting

Great stuff. I guess I wanted to know which black, and which white. I am planning a monochrome too just wondering if I should a black or Ultramarine and Burnt Umber combo.

Re: First painting

For a first painting I think you've done great! I really like the simplicity of the piece that leads you immediately into it's statement rather than a lot of details that could draw the attention away from the message.
