This is a very special Artist Gang Tuesday post for me because ONE- It's my birthday and TWO- I'm currently teaching IN PARIS!!!
I've been uber organised with getting my posts finished early and actually painted this one a few weeks ago. I have been bursting at the seams to share it with you all because I just love how it has turned out!
I've painted on a 16"x20" stretched canvas using only a selection of different sized palette knives and some vine charcoal. I do think I use my finger twice.
I've always loved nudes and really wanted to try them out. I am seriously thinking I'll do a series of these now that I've done this one .... and I might even adventurous and try on a bigger substrate.
I used all Golden Heavy Body Acrylic for the body of the painting (no pun intended) and then outlined and created some shadow with the vine charcoal.
Here is a link to the video.
I really must apologize for the angle .... I seriously thought it would work in my head while i was filming and then when it came to editing I was so disappointed with the end result. but I've learnt now so I promise the next one will be so much better.
