Something new….


Or more like a new one, a new acrylic, the model, a Canadian singer, actually amerindian, she had a lot of success as a country, folk singer, almost rock, Shania Twain, I’m not a dye hard fan, love a few of her albums, but I’m a great fan of her painting and drawing wise…I think it is the fourth time I paint or draw her….:)
Enfin plutôt une nouvelle, une acrylique, le modèle, une chanteuse, populaire voilà quelques années, une canadienne d’origine amérindienne qui a connu du succès dans le genre country, western, presque rock….Shania Twain, je ne suis pas un ‘fan’ invétéré, mais en peinture oui…je l’ai dessiné et peinte, 4 fois si je ne me trompe…donc je dois l’aimer…:)

Time to come back to painting…for this new one, I painted the sketch of Shania using gesso tainted with black and a little bit of color, so it was in the first stage much like a charcoal or ink drawing…I’m a bit lazy…don’t often take the time to prepare the canvas like it ‘should’ be done…:) here’s the first few stages
Bon revenons à la peinture, pour celle ci, j’ai repris une technique que j’ai utilisé récemment, je suis un peu paresseux, prends pas toujours le temps de préparer la toile adéquatement, donc décidé de peindre l’esquisse avec le gesso en y ajoutant du noir, et du blanc, et un peu de couleur, pour faire l’equisse de fond à partir d’une copie de la photo, voici les premières étapes.

 

Still much more to come, like more video, moving Nicole Breitenbach to the 2012 list of finished work and so on….so see you later…
Il y a plus mais ce sera pour le prochain article, encore beaucoup à faire, des vidéos, et aussi faire la page et placer Nicole Breitenbach, maintenant terminée dans la section 2012 et autres…à plus…

Nicole…signed…


Still not on an everyday schedule for posting, but even if I’m not posting, at least I am painting…good news, at least for me….I do tend to go bizark when I don’t, so good thing for me…the last few days reworked Paulina,. but today it is Nicole, which is finished, don’t get fool even if you see her in the in progress section, I will correct that in the next few days, still triying to get up to date on my sites….so here the last two pictures of this painting….in a few weeks, I try to post a making of style animation of it…

Pas encore revenu à publier quotidiennement…mais à peindre, oui…donc un peu de retard question article….mais j’y arriverai, donc ces derniers jours, bonne nouvelle pour moi, je tends à grimper dans les rideaux lorsque je ne le fais pas….:)), travaillé Paulina, mais aujourd’hui c’est plutôt la version finale de Nicole, l’arrière plan est devenu ‘plus présent’, question de choix, j’aurais pu en faire plusieurs versions de ce tableau, comme tous les autres d’ailleurs…donc voici les deux dernières photos, elle est encore dans la section ‘en cours’ mais c’est en attendant de finir de mettre à jour mes sites…:), éventuellement je ferai un petit vidéo genre ‘making of’…

Another version of this Nicole’s painting, dated from a few days ago, there is another one in ‘backup’, probably over the week end it will show up, a bit of a slow-down production wise….probably to back to a more normal schedule soon…

Nicole and her shadow…


Well still waiting to get this new painting started, so here’s Nicole and her shadows, or reminescence of her passage, footsteps….the background is increasingly moving, fading or not, I’m not quite set on the degree of fading her shadow will have…

The previous version…

What to do…I am…


Torned…on one side I did want to continue on this painting, Kerstin, model, would be some antic goddess of an enchanted forest…then finally decided to let it stand where it is now, finished? I will answer this next time I get to this painting, instead went to one that is waiting to be finished…Nicole Breitenbach, she does not live in some enchanted forest…but in some imaginary world of her own, followed by her sisters, or maybe just her lingering auras, shadowing her in every of her steps…and I did not even had a drink or smoke anything…:)

In the next few sessions, you can bet that the model in the background will be more ‘vaporous’ if I can say it like that..

For a change…


A painting about a model, no this not anything new, but no boots….this almost an oddity in one of my paintings, sometimes I trow one like this..take people off gards…:) so there’s the picture, I used photoshop to prepare the composition, I like working with this software to try different views ans arrangements..The model name is Nicole Breitenbach, a beaufitul woman..I guess sometimes I will have to paint her face, not sure it will be in this painting, kind of like the fussyness of this one now…
