Today I was totally in a lovey, gooey, mooshy mood. I decided to paint my boyfriend.
This is actually my first time ever painting a face of this size and in acrylic paint. I also painted small faces in watercolor, but never this size, never in acrylics. It was quiet challenging since I have never been taught painting. I had drawing classes in college, but never took painting. This was an experiment and a challenge at the same time.
At first, I divided a photo with a grid, I thought it would help, but it didn’t. Maybe I was doing it wrong. So then, on top of having grid as a reference, I also sketched his face. THAT helped.
Here is me at work, and some instagram photos of the process.
