The fourth stage
Another almost three hours spent on the Monet portrait. I so work very slowly but I am really enjoying the experience so much. This is a portrait that Monet painted of himself, I want to walk in his path, as I lay the paint down I think 'now did Monet mix that colour and use that size of brush'!! I need to now wait for the mouth and beard area to dry before going any further. I plan to add a cooler glaze on those areas. I have started the Van Gogh portrait this afternoon. This is often the part that takes the longest for me which is carefully drawing the features so I can try and get a close likeness. We still have snow here but I was able to get out today to the library and art supply shop!
Happy Painting to you all!!!
