Oct 28, 2014 Giraffe Painting

I painted this Giraffe based on the dvd of Jerry Yarnell's inspiration of painting. It's my first closed-up animal painting and it was challenging, especially making the face and all the fur.
Although I'm more into landscape paintings, I want to learn so many other techniques so someday I can paint everything.

I paint this on 16x20 inches canvas using acrylic paints: gesso, cadmium red medium, cadmium yellow light, cadmium orange, hooker's green, ultramarine blue, diox. purple.

Country Villa Paint by Numbers, Oct 17, 2014

I started doing new paint by numbers called Country Villa 11 days ago. It measures 16x20 inches canvas with 20 colors. It was fun and fast project. Not really my style in colors, because I like a little bit softer colors, but I do like the end result.

Winter Doe painting, Oct 14, 2014

I've been wanting to paint animals for the longest time but had no courage to do it.
I purchased a book by Wilson Bickford and last night I tried it for the first time painting Winter Doe.
It was fun following step by step in the book, using only 5 colors: titanium white, burnt sienna, red cadmium medium, yellow cadmium light and ultramarine blue.

This is painted on 12x16 inches canvas panel.

Fox Paint by Numbers, Oct 7, 2014

I finished another Paint by Number project. This one measures 16x20 and called Sunlit Fox, by Dimensions. I started this PBN on Sept 15, 2014, so since I also painted other things, I didn't always paint this. So, it takes me about 3 weeks to finish.

Autumn Scene painting, Oct 5, 2014

I painted another one of Jerry Yarnell's lesson. I love the way he combines colors. So serene.
I painted this on 16x20 inches canvas using acrylic paints. It took almost 6 hours to finish this because there were so many details added to make things a lot more interesting.

Happy Fall!!!

Painting a pumpkin, Oct 5, 2014

We went to a small farm on Sunday, the 14th and they had a harvest festival there.
So many people went and did pumpkin patch. We just picked a white big pumpkin instead.

Since I don't like Halloween nor celebrate it, I decided to paint the pumpkin with regular scenes.
Made 4 different scenes from it : lake, mountain, autumn trees and sea with dolphin.
So much fun painting these although it took a longer time for the paint to dry.
