Still practicing to draw people with the help of a friend’s lovely photographs.

Franci

Franci is the performer in this family. That’s why she’s always the model for a painting. Well.. the only willing model!

Forgiven

I wasn’t sure whether I should post this, because I copied another artist’s work – I didn’t know that at first! But I will see this as an exercise and it is not a painting I will sell!

Our youth pastor gave me a picture he got from the internet. He wanted it in a painting, but more modern and colourful, because it illustrates so perfectly what Jesus Christ had done for us.

 I had no idea how to do it, because I normally just do an exact version of what I see. So I tried to do it more ”painterly” – as my first art teacher would call it. You put down the paint and then leave it! And don’t fiddle again!

But when I wanted to put it on my blog, I googled the image and saw that it was a painting I worked from. I really thought it was a photograph. That tells you a lot about the original artist. It is a painting done by Thomas Blackshear, an american artist.  Here is the original artwork.

So, this is just my version of someone else’s beautiful work of art.

Northern Cape

We just came back after a week in the Northern Cape. I grew up there, but I think we forget how cold it can be! But also very quiet and no rushing anywhere.

The painting has nothing to do with the holiday. I only wanted to finish it before we went, but couldn’t, so this afternoon I did the last touches.

Secure and content…
