OK, so I think the painting was ok, but back in those days I didn't know much about highlights and it didn't really have the bright colors I like:
It was literally like the photo, and it was a wooden angel, so the painting looked a bid tired, a bit dark... But me, being me, I couldn't make myself destroy the poor thing.
So, like I was saying, last night I got my oil paints, after years! They are water mixable, and changed the painting a little, can you see any difference?
I added highlights in hair and skin, made the eyes more alive, and I still will add more lavender to the wings and a bit of pink in the face:
I am liking how it pops out of the blue sky there....
Excuse the beige background, it is the tiled counter :oP
I didn't use an acelerator to dry fast, so now it is sitting there with a "wet paint" on the mantle ha!
Well, how are you doing in your 29 faces so far?
