* Sunday Afternoon ... finally ...

Sheeeeesh!  I think I might have finally got the male body the way I want it!  More work to do, but the blocking in is done to my liking.  It's taken long enough.  I'm finding I'm much better at drawing female bodies without a model.  Makes sense to me.

So, with a little more detail work on his face, hair and background, I will be done.  It was very difficult to get a good shot as I have been working with glazes which involves fast drying linseed oil, and the painting is currently very shiny.  This was the best I could do .. you get the idea.   I will be very happy to have it finished and hung.

Thanks for stopping by My Lovelies.  Have a great day.  xxoo

  1. The painting looks much different to how it did last time you showed it, it's really good. The colours are so soft, gives a lovely atmosphere. But I agree, women are easier to paint! Have a great day, Hugs, Valerie

  2. Great job Donna on this wonderful painting. What talent you just amazes me.

  3. Hi Donna,

  4. Wonderful job- you are taking on all kinds of new challenges. I also have a hard time w/ the male body. drawing,painting, whatever. Maybe that's why I stick to gals so much. Bravo for breaking out and you did great!

  5. Well, this is an interesting scene. :) I'm looking forward to see what comes out of it. :)

  6. Love the male body...beautiful .
