Tried leonid afremov style of knife painting.
He is sooooooo good with colors. Makes such vibrant and beautiful knife oil paintings. He is my inspiration when it comes to knife painting.
Knife painting is less clumsy but quite costly. It needs so much of paint and tissues. Beginners definitely find it intimidating.... but one must remember ... knife painting gives a lot of freedom to the artist.
Sensual bareback (Oil Painting on Canvas) One big step towards portraits painting. Ventured into skin colors. Loved the colors used ... esp the towel color. Challenges: -> Blonde hair were really challenging. I painted hair 4 times, but no success. Removed the color everytime. Then finally used combination of yellow ocre, white, burnt sienna and the whole thing turned out good. -> Skin color was made with Burnt sienna, crimson lake and white. Shades of these 3 mostly worked. Vermilion Hue was a great color for the towel, with shades of crimson lake. Vermilion hue is such a beautiful orange..... being so transparent is its best quality :) Produces a beautiful lighter orange if mixed with yellow. Background is simple combo of crimson lake and black.
