New Prada & Progress of Enken

Loving the new Spring Summer collection by Prada for 2011. Reminds me of my work in a way!

Progress shots of Enken's painting. Not happy with it yet. I haven't hilighted the eyes correctly. I was playing around with it but had to rush off and leave things unresolved till another day.

2 Little Work in Progress Shots of Enken

Here's a quick little work in progress shot in detail of my latest painting of Enken. Sorry her face is a bit disturbing at the moment. Didn't get to make a move on her nose or mouth. Happy with how it's going though!

Currently painting in the quinacridone shirt of the Edward painting. Part of me is really missing the exposed canvas. The contrast of that strong white and its texture really brought something nice to the work. Oh well, now it looks like a shirt. Folds can be fun to paint when you get them right, and I've enjoyed exploring the limits of a new colour.

Enken - Watercolours

Here are some watercolours I've been working on of my new, gorgeous model Enken. I've started painting on mount board recently (thanks to kind donations) which has resolved this buckled paper look - I've been worried about how I will present them in the gallery. I like the texture of the mount and the fine square pattern.

Work in Progress

This is my latest oil series (a work in progress). Seeing it now has made me realise I should have used a compass! The stripes I painted in acrylic to give it a sharp, flat contrast to the realism and texture of the oil paint. The white shirt will be painting in medium toned magenta. To be specific quinacridone from Winsor and Newton
