@ Zooreka
Your portrait looks great for a first oil attempt.

This is some local scenery I am working on, still a WIP.

Re: Welcome to What's on Your Easel...October 2017

As mentioned... Keith got scrapped (Went to Toronto I guess!....)

So you can imagine the dark grey mud that I was left with after giving it a good stub with some medium... I caught an image by Kevin Hill on Youtube of a Tuscan Landscape and decided to give it a go from Dark to light working backwards and employ a more traditional approach than the Bob Ross heave-ho!... This is how far it has got. I was having trouble with my medium but now think it's sorted.... I want this to settle down and dry off a bit so I can apply a few glazes and tighten up a few areas, then just add the final details,,, Am tempted to "Fix" the flow but I think the glazes will probably get me where I want to go with it....

Oh... treaded myself to a new easel yesterday... at last!



ehh mm.. The Add image thing is NOT working here.. tried to add an image... everything greyed out Jpeg, png and bmp...

Re: Welcome to What's on Your Easel...October 2017

Some beautiful work appearing here guys! But is it me or is it a little quiet this month?
Anyhow, finished my latest this evening, barring some minor tweaks:



Only took six months

I noticed that there is a "main forum" if you want critiques... dumb question, how do you get to the main forum???
