This is the painting that I did during the course. I call it “Not so sallow lady” – as the original that I copied it from was of a very miserable looking lady!
In the last two weeks of the course I got to start working on my second piece. I chose a photo that I had taken during 2014 in a Tall Order Giraffe Encounter experience at the Werribee Zoo (lots of fun – highly recommended!). It took me awhile to finish it, with lots of rework, but I got there in the end!
While I sort out my next oil painting project (!!), here are a few photos of my giraffes in development. Hope you all had a lovely new year!
