Phwaaaaaaaaaaah.

 Undecided

Right.
This is where I get nervous. First post with my paint !
*squeeks*

I thought I'd post something simple'ish' just to dip my toes like, see what you think?
all comments, critiques and jokes welcome !!

These are two close ups of a painting I did for class... The final piece is over 2m long !!
I'm incapable of taking a picture of something that big  Tongue
But when I get someone to do it for meh I'll be sure to post !!

Acrylic paint and Posca pens  Cheesy





A closer upper of teh girl for llisaredd  Cheesy




aaaand crappy photos I took with my phone the day of the evaluation of finished works.  Undecided
I really need to start using my camera ... I'll change these for better quality when I get Monsieur to pin it up again for me  Cheesy

I don't know how to describe it without sounding like I'm heavily stoned  Cheesy

The blue swirls fade out into bigger yellow/green swirls which are melting into orange and purple rays ... They then turn back into blue/purple swirls themselves !!

I've never painted anything this big before and having "carte blanche" on subject matter made it all quite daunting but once I got into the swirls I couldn't stop !! it's very addictive !!  Grin

I am intrigued... My grandfather was an impressionist painter, and I see alot of potential in your technique. Hope you get the big version posted soon, cuz I am seriously, totally intrigued.

Thank you for the positive comments !!
It's really encouraging to know that other people (ie. Non friends that don't feel that they have to be nice!) appreciate this !!
I hope the new photos are not disappointing, the colour change is quite drastic I'll admit !
This piece made me realize I really like painting and doing more is this years resolution !!  Grin

I like all the texture you've achieved with such simple swirls, and I like the "sketchy" drawing of the girl. Nicely done!
