    hi vineris, thanks for taking the time to critique my work!

    i really like your landscapes, you have a great sense of colour and mood. i really love the colours and the minimalism in the painting of the reeds as well as the painting with the purple clouds! Keep up the awesome work!

    @Bella DC - Thanks! Colours are definitely my favourite thing to do.

    One of these days I'm going to find an illustration method that works. Today doesn't seem to be the day. IOW #6:

    So here's the story. This year I thought I'd do an acrylic portrait for International Self-Portrait Day. Sat down after lunch, started working, three hours or so later the light was going and dinnertime was nigh. I took the thing out to the kitchen to get a second opinion and Mr. Vin and I agreed that the portrait was shite. Complete and utter crap.

    So after a good dose of swearing and dinner I took another couple hours to do this digital self-portrait, from life for a change (I usually end up doing them from photos because, well, look at the lighting. Atmosphere de fluorescent bulb.)

    Lagomorphosis - Vin's Sketches

    But now I have this problem with acrylics. Then I remembered that there used to be a guy who did these little acrylic portraits for practice using a big brush and limited palette. So I decided to start doing a few for practice and see whether I can improve. They're tiny so they can be done quite quickly, apart from the usual lot of work I still plan to do.

    Here's the results of today's experiments:

    These took about half an hour each. The first one I used iron oxide black as the cool colour and quinacridone red for the red, the second I switched to Payne's gray and permanent alizarin hue. I'm also using yellow ochre and titanium white. I think I'll stick with Payne's gray as I seem to like it, but I'm not sure I've settled on a red.

    So... the big brush was really hard to control and I'm not really pleased with the results, but hey, I guess when you're at the bottom all roads lead up. The cheering thought is that I can steal photos with impunity because no photographer is going to recognize their subjects in these.

    Using a slightly smaller brush for these (3/8" flat rather than 1/2" flat). I think the top two used permanent alizarin red while the bottom was cadmium red middle.

    These are slightly better than the last batch, I think.
