Trying Out Acrylics | Painting

image

My drawing skills are pretty terrible, but lately I’ve been looking for other ways besides sewing and photography to stay creative.

I’ve been playing around with pencil drawings and have even dabbled a bit with oil pastels. So far, so good. But I still wanted to try more. Enter, acrylic paints.

I’ve painted pieces of wood, clothing, etc. before, but to paint something from scratch is still new to me. It was pretty much a learn-as-you-go kind of thing when I was painting this picture.

There are a few things that I’d improve if I created this again or something similar, but I’m quite happy with the results. My favourite part is the tree. I’m quite pleased with the blending that I did on it. Overall, it’s not bad for a first time effort!

I’m definitely going to explore this medium a bit more and see what happens. With some of the dreams that I’ve been having lately, this might be the way to go with putting them down to paper.

Until the next adventure…

Learning To Draw

image

I’m not really much of a drawer. I prefer making costumes and taking pictures instead. Lately, however, I’ve been wanting to learn something new to add to my skill set. I suppose I needed a little change in scenery to feed the creativity.

The drawing of the ball that you see at the top of this post is something I worked on today. I’m working on perfecting my shading using coloured pencils. Obviously there’s room for improvement, but I’m pleased with the results.

Next time, I’ll try it with paints!
