Link of Karen he is an amazing photographer and I thank him Big time for helping me pursue my art.

I have used oils only and am at the moment getting into the glazing technique of oils.

This is my final year of college and I am to complete another 6 of these for the first semester. If you have a photograph that you would love to see painted in this style let me know. I need help with my nude ladies. Thanks for looking. BillyLee

    Belinda, this is so very beautiful. Ahhhh.. from print making to oils!!!

    you go girl

  • Thanks Izzybeth, I didn’t think I could do it and was panicking a few weeks ago. Thinking how was I going to do it. I just don’t get oils. But then I got all my books on how to glaze out and read how masters painted and am teaching myself about colour. Then suddenly I caught the bug and wow….now I can’t wait to start the next painting.

    What can I say? Absolutely BEAUTIFUL work Billy.

  • Thanks Lynda, I still need to add some final touches, I want to add light but am a bit stuck on how to do that. Do I add touches of white or light. Mmmmmm, It could be a little better. Will work on it. Thanks for commenting. I am excited to put it up on redbubble finally and hope the photographer who took the photograph of Karen approves.

    Thanks Gini, it has been a tough year and the only time I totally forget about my woes is when I go into that room and start painting. Thank goodness we have our art right. The only problem is I stopped exercising when I found art, so, well you can only imagine. But its much more fun painting than walking up the highway like a maniac every day.

    Stunning work Belinda. :)

  • Thanks Orla, I had so much fun and frustration…its hard to know….the big question: “When is an Oil Painting finsihed?”. I never know? Its frustrating because when is it done. So I posted it anyway, is it done? No not really, but this is it right now. Any suggestions? BillyLee

    Well Belinda, you are the artist and when you feel it’s done…then it’s done. It looks finished enough for me anyway. Keep up the great work. :)

    I tend to agree with Orla. I think it is done, and looks wonderful as it is, but you are the artist and the ultimate knowledge of when enough is enough is your choice alone!
