APRIL 30, 2010

Well here is what I've been working on this week. In one of the web sites that I'm in we are working on portraits. There was a lovely photo of an Indian boy that I loved, poor guy. So I tried him. First I had to draw. I don't draw well, my fault, I don't practice but this time I was determined. Here was my effort.

So then after a week's worth of work I was fairly pleased so I decided to put paint to paper. This was my result. Not too good. Didn't have colors right and not the right paper. I just kept changing and changing which meant stressing the paper.

Well needless to say I haven't been pleased, too purple, eyes not right but I kept on. Did I mention this is the little Indian Arapahoe that I am trying to paint.

Poor little guy I hope he forgives me. I really tried but it got to the point that I had removed the paint so many times that I had a hole in the paper. Yup that bad. I did learn a lot of things and I plan to redo this proud warrior on different paper that will take my constant changing and removing the paint. He was what I ended up with on my first try. You will see this little guy again and hopefully he will be better.
