I used gamsol and scrubbed off all of the oil pastel and then went back in with a #stabilo black pencil. Still experimenting. It’s been a long day of doctors , study , chores, chickens , working on sculpture (due date is approaching !!!) but I couldn’t stay away from this portrait. Now to read Austen and sleep !
This is a portrait of Tashi and her companion, Mishka. She is a founding member of the Australian Tattooists Guild and has played in active role in attempting to maintain fairness in the newly formed legislation regarding the right to work for tattoo artists. @australiantattooistsguild maintains efforts to make sure our rights as tattooers in Australia aren't infringed upon to best of their ability. They also helped with my visa application process to be able to move to Australia. Although it didn't qualify for @moranprizes this year, I'm satisfied with the growth I experienced in this oil painting. And I wanted to share. I also upped my frame making skills. Bonus. Thanks Tashi and the guild for all the hard work you all do. And thanks for sitting. This is one of, if not my best painting her. #oilpainting#artistsoninstagram#portraitpainting#artistsofinstagram#doggo
@lauren_daigle came out with an album this month, it’s sitting No. 3 on the billboard 200 list for albums this week ahead of artists like Drake and Ariana Grande and right under Eminem’s Kamikaze. It’s amazing, I made this while listening to it @lauren_daigle
A woman was doing her make up, sitting on the grass, not caring what was around her, the little trash and the beautiful scene, at the same time the soft sun light shine in the daytime. She was getting ready to dance. She voluntary to dance for Edmonton communities. Not tired of doing that after working to make a living. It’s the strength of first generation immigrant.
