No 3 in my 100 artworks series, this time my aim was to create a chubby faced clown like character. This time instead of using a normal HB pencil to draw my shape and outline I’ve used a light blue pencil so that the lines disappear more easily once painted over.
The thing I’m beginning to realise about my painting ability is that I haven’t got one. I tend to try and colour with paint rather than paint with colour. I suppose it’s years of using alcohol pens like Promarkers and Copics. I have a tendency to try and blend the paints in the same way in which I can for the pens.
It doesn’t work in the same way. Which means I have to try and learn how to paint and blend the acrylic paints more effectively.
More research needed methinks….off to YouTube!
