    Red face Fish's Paint + now cast drawings dec 06

    Well, i started a regime of painting everyday. These are gonna be acrylic on roughly A6 paper, taking varying amounts of time, from life. They're to teach myself painting as my school seems to prefer not to (gotta love school) and are an extra to other painting and drawing i do. Let me know if images don't show etc. Apologies for the not-so-tasty scans.

    I really like these. I've tried acrylic recently after being committed to oils for so long and im really impressed by the quality you achieve with them. The marble and the lamp are my favorites. please keep posting these!!

    Good for you bro! This is what I've always intended to do, but always fail. The paintings are showing improvement, keep it up!

    These are very nice. What a cool idea!
    You're getting a very oil painterly feeling to these acrylics.
    What is A6 paper?

    Acrylics

    Hi,

    First, your paintings are very good, glad you are practicing real life....

    Is that a sketchbook you are working on?...I mean, is that " acrylic prepared paper" or just a regular strong paper?

    c u soon

    Arcthurus- it's just a cheap little £2 sketchbook with regular, not particularly heavy paper (135 gsm). As they're in a sketchbook, i'm hoping that by the time it's full it should show some progess.

    Your colours are looking really nice here! I'd love to see some more precise edges. I'd suggest more work on the drawing, particularly perspective, but good stuff!

    Tully- Cheers, you're right. My structure and persective is often wonky (particularly the last one...an off day). I could probably afford to spend that extra couple o minutes to get it right.

    24th Feb:

    40min old clothes peg. again with the shadow. Colours are a little nicer in the real thing.

    Are you really builing up as thick a coat of paint on your backgrounds as it looks? It looks really thick, but the paper doesn't look wrinkled, how does that work?
    I really like these they're fresh and spontanious.
    I was so inspired that I started doing my own daily paintings.

    Gilead- Scanning paintings does funny things, the paint isn't actually that thick. Glad to hear you're inspired...if you want real inspiration when it comes to daily painting check out Duane Keiser and his painting-a-day blog. He's the man that inspired me to begin this.

    A6?! That's tiny! How can you work that small? Anyone who hasn't seen A6 before, the pictures posted here are almost full size. It's about an inch taller and 1.5 wider

    Anyway, some nice work here. If you keep this going you'll definately see some improvement. Good luck with it

    EDIT: Forgot to ask, did you sketch these in pencil first or just go straight for paint?

    Big-Dave - It's not impossible to work small. I try to use a big a brush as possible too, to keep it fresh. No there's no under-drawing, it's just painting shapes. Thanks for stopping by.

    26th Feb (failed to get one done yesterday cause i was eating obscene amounts of chinese food till late. I might try to get another one done some time to catch up)

    30 min pencil...boring i know

    The light bulb and the pencil (last one) are great, there is a better approach of colors and specially shapes... I also have difficult times doing real shapes, just practice and practice....

    Keep on the good work..

    27th Feb:

    30min battery...really didn't feel like painting. so much wrong here it feels like a step backwards . Determined to keep at it though

    2nd March:

    30min lighter... appaulingly bad perspective issues . it's interesting how the ones i do when i really don't want to paint come out so much worse. Still...this is an all-laid-bare thread so i'm gonna show each one, bad and not so bad.

    I really like these, it makes me want to go try acrylics! I think if you worked on your drawing skills more these would come out much better. Best of luck to you and I hope to see more of these soon.
