WDEs from the last few weeks.

1: Pumpkin - This was created using Artrage Digital oil paint. The colour isn't as vibrant as I would have liked but I don't mind this one.
2: Guitarist - I chose this because you cant see the boys eyes so, no eyes to do, not so intimidating to try. I enjoyed the process. It seems a little unfinished but I like the overall effort.
Artrage, Digital chalk.
3: "Polish" - This is another Artrage digital. I used the oil paint to create an Abstract, inspired by one of the WDE images. I had alot of fun with this one and really like the result.

Happy Easter!
These eggs were created using an image from this weeks WDE and Artrage. I used the metallics and stencils in Artrage and tried to bend the images around the eggs using Photoshop.This Magnolia is from another Image from this weeks WDE and I have used Artrage to sketch freehand and Artrage oil paints to paint.

I enjoyed the challenge of painting it.

WDE Oil Painting - Amber.

Unusual for me to paint an oil painting in one sitting.
I was inspired by the Oil painters on WDE that finish thier paintings in the one sitting and thought I would try.
Although not a bad effort, no where near the standard set by the other members.
This is 6 x 9 on Oil painting paper. Took about 1hr 45mins.
