3 Canvas Paintings started in one day




The other day I got myself motivated and began three canvases in one day!! I have almost finished them now - so three days, for three canvases was a good achievement for me. Also, I did manage to photograph them all in step by step stages. So perhaps I will be able to add a tutorial or something soon.
It was great fun playing with them, and seeing them develop. I know I have some work to do on my faces - as they are not my forte at all. Playing and learning from my mistakes is the best way of developing myself........ so don't cringe at those mistakes because sometimes I have found my favourite works have 'evolved' from mistakes, or from something I wasn't totally happy with at first. It's as if the mistakes are meant to be there, so the evolution and new artwork can emerge!!
Here's the 3 pieces -

  1. This is one of my next things to try ( I have had three mini canveses sitting in a cupboard for a couple of months).
    Your art work is gorgeous Lorri. I love the bright colours and stunning backgrounds. The faces have a wonderful simplicity to them. All in all, fab!
