I’ve been experimenting and trying something a little bit different with my latest paintings. I wanted to do a series of 4 painting entitled “Brief Encounter” and I think I’ve pretty much finished the first two now “Expectation & Anticipation” and they have had rather a mixed response here.
They are done in acrylics on a 16”x12” canvas. To be honest I don’t think the photographs do them justice, I had to use auto correct so a lot of the shading just hasn’t been picked up. I think I need to find myself a good photographer!
I am quite pleased with “Expectation” but I’m still feeling the need to tweak “Anticipation”. I haven’t attempted faces so close up before and from different angles. Usually I paint a face front on so it is proving a bit of a challenge; still I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to the next two.
