Daily spitpaint

Here is today's spitpaint. I chose the masquerade theme and thought it would be fun to do some fan art with that theme. So here it is :)  

30min Speed painting - Three headed Ogre

Another  30min daily spitpaint painting. Having never ever painted a creature before I found this topic a bit challenging. So below was my shameful first attempt. I think I was trying to be too ambitious with trying to design each face and give detail in such a short time that it ended up looking really bad. So about is my second attempt and here I learnt from my mistake and focused on the composition of the character and its surrounding and kept the shapes simple with just enough detail to know what is going on

Speed painting

My speed painting for today for the daily spitpainting group on Facebook. Today I chose to combined two topics they had up today which was fancy dress and sheep on a bike. So here is a man dressed in fancy dress as Shaun the sheep on a bike :) This one was fun

Speed paintings

I recently join a group on Facebook called daily spitpaint, where you have to do a 30min painting based on a various themes of the day. I decided to join as I felt I needed to improve on my concept and speed painting skills. So here are my first weeks attempt at this and I can already feel my painting speed improving. Order starting from the more recent to my very first attempt.

Umbrellas and chain lightning

Snowy forest

It's been a bit chilly today, so thought I would paint a snowy scene.

Tribal woodsman

A painting I did this morning. I was playing around with  few new brushes I made and trying out a different approach to painting. It was good fun and it might have given me a few ideas for future paintings :)
