Thursday, December 27, 2007 - Man and Horse

I couldn't wait - I changed my template. Tell me what you think. I think it looks cold like January and February here in my part of the US so I'm okay with it - but I would like to know if you like it more, less, or don't care.
The next 3-color challenge painting using Ultramarine Violet + Indigo + Tigers Eye Genuine (this is a terribly ugly color and I guess I got it because it granulates but it's a terribly ugly brownish green color :( and I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you want an ugly brown-green color!


I used a photo from a magazine of the actor, Ken Watanabe (The Last Samarai, Memoirs of a Geisha) and a pale horse. Guess he's been riding and is sitting down for a rest since he has his riding boots on. I think I need even darker darks in places.

I may not do another painting but pull out my Virtual Poser cd and work on some sketches instead. I haven't been drawing as much as I should - just sketches on the wc paper before painting. Although I did pull a blue and a yellow this next 3-color draw so it may tempt me to do something else to finish up the year. Afterall, there are still 4 more days of the year left before I do my Drawing in the New Year challenge to myself (you are very welcome to join me on New Year's Eve Day and draw and draw and draw).
