I started 2 new oil paintings, one of a portrait of a dog and one of a little girl after the well known painter bouguereau. I love the paintings of this painter.
Only the first layer is added to the pieces of MDF. They both are 15x20 cm.
The color I used for these fine art painting method is raw umber and Titian white.
In the next layers, after this layer is dry, more details are added and I try to give it more depth and by adding darker color and white.
I love the color mixed with the umber and white.
It looks like an old photograph.
I want to paint the portrait of the little girl only in using the umber and white and only add in the portrait of the dog some warmer brown/reddish.
Also the white is not really white but contains a lot of color other colors, cool and warm.
A real challenge.
But I am so proud that I managed to get all the things in the right places.
The painting of the dog sofar took me 4 days of hard work, but I loved it!
