In my opinion, the most interesting things to draw/paint. You can’t really go wrong with it, because all eyes, mouths, noses etc look different. I find it the easiest to draw with a mirror. By looking at my own facial features, it helps make the drawings look more realistic.
Lana Del Rey and Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn Monroe‘s hair was the most challenging to copy. Her features are so sharp. Also, it’s difficult to draw celebrities because if they go a little bit wrong, it doesn’t end up looking like them. My Lana Del Rey painting went wrong several times. It still isn’t my strongest but I enjoyed doing it.
Eyes are by far my most favourite facial feature: To take photos of and to draw. It’s a lot more ambitious to try and paint one because of the risk of messing it up.. although I guess that goes for everything. It’s alluring because I’ve always had an interest in drawing eyes. My interpretation has changed a lot.
Eyes and mouths
After weeks and weeks of thinking and planning I have finally produced my final piece for Art GCSE. It’s my own adaptation of Agnes Cecile’s acrylic painting. She used oil and acrylic while I stuck with just using acrylic on canvas.
To make the painting a little more 3D I stuck cute little colourful beads on the person’s wild, mad ‘hair’. It adds a nice texture to the painting.
I am loving this weather. It is such an unpopular opinion! Winter over Summer any day. During the winter it rains, snows, windy, foggy, hail, storms. A whole lot more exciting that heatwaves and burning in the sun, in my opinion! The soothing sound of the trickling taps of the rain hitting against the window is so snug. Everybody is a whole lot happier during the winter season too. People get together more. In the summer, it is sometimes dominated by sweaty, mood teenagers (Not a great combination!). The main thing is, you need to make most of your day indoors. Do something creative in your house instead of lazing in front of the TV with a jar of Nutella. Your creativity will only expand as an affect of your actions.
During MY wet rainy days, I paint, and paint, and paint. (Shocker). I attempted another painting by Agnes Cecile. Big Bang of Watercolour. It is my most favourite painting of all time. It is beautifully presented, it makes you think of a thousand different thoughts. The girl looks unhappy, but this contradicts the warm colours. Ever heard the saying “A sad girl can fake a smile“? I think this relates. This painting has such a huge impact, I have chosen to do it for my art final piece. I hope it goes well!
