Stage 3

Today was not one of my most successful days videoing. After watching it back there were times when I seem to go missing in action (note to self- make sure you re-focus the camera when moving to another part of the portrait!) Had I done so you would have seen how I added detail and texture to the upper part of the ear, the face and the head. Hey ho! I am still learning but I did learn to mute the camera! So after much editing, the following clip shows how I start to render the ear, well the lower part any way.

You will see how a mix of pastels and pastel pencils are layered until the desired depth of detail is achieved.

I did do a lot of work off camera, however you can see the bigger picture at the end of the video.

There is still more to do but this will be work for tomorrow.

New painting added

I have added a new painting to my shop. It's a Robin painted in watercolour on a beautiful background. Please take a look. It would make a lovely Christmas gift.
