She has arrived, after weeks of waiting on drying times, and building up layers.. "Jarka I" is here. I'm very pleased with the result after quite a few rocky moments. I plan to work on several more portraits of my muse, including some new nudes. Presently researching portrait competitions to enter this piece into. Who knows, luck may be on my side?

and start over...

So, after weeks..no..months of telling my little head to do it, I have taken the plunge into the world of oils. What a fantastically challenging world it is...so far. Such a learning curve. And beautifully messy. For the past few days I have been working on this figurative piece. The forthcoming months will be all about figurative work ( nudes), and discovering new techniques with oils. Quite a jump away from acrylics and animals. If I can progress and portray what I have in my head...there will be some great canvases produced. Beautiful...
