I’ve decided that 2020 is the year where I’ll try to specialize my efforts a bit.
I’ll try my best to actually plan a painting, and not just do something on a whim and see how it goes.
I’ll try to find some chosen mediums and motives to get better at, and not just try out random stuff in a random order (allthough I will do stuff like that when I need a break once in a while).
Yes, I’ll lose some of the playful approach to it all, but I just feel that it’s time to take my efforts a bit further.
So my thought right now is that the marine life is a theme I want to specialize in. Not just boats and harbours, but seas and waves as well.
Watercolour and oil are the mediums I want to spend more time on while doing this.
I also want to work more on my drawing lines. Especially my people drawing, which I had some efforts at a while back.
Just drawing them in a loose style, making my hand do the work.
Like this one:
They turned out rather nice, I think. And are difinitely something to keep building on.
Anyway, I did a little practice, to see if I could recreate the style.
I came close, but they looked a bit more old fashioned in my new version. To make it a bit more interesting, I added some colours as well.
I’ll have another go in my next session 🙂
