Speed painting of Toby

I thought I'd try paint someone else as my blog is starting to have too many paintings of me on it. Here is Toby Dixon :)

Self portrait08

Another self portrait with a little step by step process of how I do it. Definitly feeling more confident with painting faces :)

Self Portrait 07

I painted this one in the dark with my laptop and passage light as the only source. Was pretty fun.


A thumbnail  I randomly came up with for a possible painting. I thought I would post it up to give me a reason to finish it.

Self portrait06

Still have not got my face quite right. Guess that means I need to do more!

Self portrait05

Not such a great one today as my eyes felt so tired after wearing my contacts for too long. Found it difficult to stay awake for this one.

Self Portrait 04

Day 4 of my self portrait painting. Today I wanted to try and draw and paint my portrait within an hour. I really enjoyed it as it made me focus more on the tone and colours rather than fiddling with details. I tried to use a large brush for as long as I could to keep the roughness of the painting. Looking forward to tomorrows one :)

Self Portrait 02

Day 2 of my self portrait painting. I think this one is a slight improvement from yesterdays one. I might have found a brush that I like :) Hopefully I keep improving as the days go on.
