Acrylics on acrylic sketch.
I combined 3 images for this, including a copy of an old japanese screen depicting the rising sun, and another with the cranes flying around. The little man was featured in the sunday paper the other day, I found his face interesting.
Acrylique sur toile huilée.
Pour cette peinture, j’ai rassemblé 3 images, dont celle d’un vieux paravent japonais qui représentait le soleil levant et un autre avec les grues. Le petit monsieur était dans le journal du dimanche, j’ai trouvé son visage interressant.

    Ma biche, c’est un travail qui te ressemble beaucoup : énormément de précisions et de sens du détail, le tout bien achevé, TOI bref !
    Je trouve l’idée de plusieurs images rassemblées très intéressantes et le résultat tout à fait à la hauteur. C’est un gros travail que tu as fait et te félicite du résultat. Cet homme nous interroge du regard, et on le sent très serein. Et les grues ? comme elles sont délicatement faites…..
    Au fait, l’Asie t’intéresserait-elle ? LOL et re-lol

  • Que tu me fais rire! Merci ma grande, je ne travaille pas aussi vite que toi car en fait je me complique les choses, je trouve toujours des trucs pas faciles à peindre………

    Your latest work is again fabulous. It is a great picture with seamless aspects of Asia beautifully combined.

  • Thank you Val. My sister asked me (in a cheeky way) if I like Asia….. But it’s true, I do tend to do a lot of portraits of asians. I find their faces so interesting.

    it’s amazing, acrylic is hard to work for me…… and you did amazing job on his face….. master painting

  • Hi Hasmig and thank you for your (very generous) comment. I used to hate acrylics because they dry so quickly, but I found this liquid called “drying retarder”. All you do is put a drop or 2 on your paint and it will take much longer to dry, this gives you so much more time to work. It’s great!

    Magnifique Colo ! I think the photo is not flattering of the painting. I think the painting looks even better in real life. It’s just beautiful.

    This looks great on Red Bubble. You’ve combined all the images well. The acrylics looks good too.

  • Yay!
