First two sessions

It didn’t took many days for me to realize that I really had to paint this picture – even when the photo was already expressing the euphoria quite well itself. It was also a great motivation for me to improve my skills in painting people. It was self-evident that this work of art could not be made very small. So I chose 80 x 60 cm canvas to work with.
The picture below shows the painting after two sessions. First I sketched the picture with pencil and then painted the whole canvas light sky blue. Next day I started painting faces – because I usually start from the hardest parts of the picture.

Like so many times with other paintings too, came the backwater phase, and the work did not progress for a moment. One weekend, however, I decided to continue painting with beautiful natural light and got into a surprising battle with my own jumper (with silvery hearts on it!). It wasn’t easy to paint a knitted texture and make it look real. I really like learning new things and in addition to painting i spent several hours on YouTube watching instructional videos on painting clothes.

Let’s see when I feel like sitting down with this one next time. I’ll let you know then.
