Hello everyone...I'm practicing to become a professional painter, I've been teaching myself for years, its been an extremely long and painful struggle.
I'm hoping to apply for one of those scholarship programs on the ARC. Hopefully It'll workout...
I'll be posting whatever I paint from life or from reference or from a photograph of a master painting on this thread.
I hope you guys like my work and critiques are very much welcome.
For starters here are a couple of miniature oil studies of old master paintings
Sizes 10x15cm and 8x10cm with detail .

Dimensions 10x15cm porcelain painting
Study after William Bouguereau.
It took me a month with this one. In 2009.it had to be burnt in various kiln temperatures...it was a long process I learnt a lot from it.
But I wish I would've been able to control the results more accurately.

I started this tonight...I think I made quite a few mistakes on this one...should define the pectoralis better...and should probably put in some shadows.. since i wasn't really concerned with accuracy but was aiming for color, I'll let it pass, I will however add some blues in the skin tones.
I worked on her today a little bit. I gave her some form, a bit of color, an eye and a nose...
It is a bit difficult to paint that small, if you think about it.
