Colour and Tone

Phthalo blue
On my half-closed eyes...
I didn't get the balance tones right in this painting.  The bottom right background and the top right  are a bit too dark.  The left side of the painting is just fine.
I'll try again on 300 gm. paper.

Charcoal practise

I practised the same photo at home.  Emm.. not yet right.

Charcoal at the AAWCC

This is with a touch of the instructor on the final drawing.

The road to Dubai

Charcoal drawing wasn't hard as it looks.  The road to Dubai was the first piece; it wasn't too bad.  But the second piece was tough, a portrait from the photo.  It didn't look as it was shown at the first place.  It was corrected by the instructor.  She showed me how to draw and shadow which was very helpful.  Thanks to Ms. M.

Last winter in Al Ain

The weather is so hot these days, it is about 41 C degrees today.  It made me think about the last winter in Paradise Park in Al Ain.  It was so beautiful and full of flowers.  I took some photos and painted it just to remind me that there will be winter to come.

Study painting

We were busy painting at the AWCC meeting last Wednesday morning.  We have to paint 4 paintings in two hours!!  Some of us finished on time but I didn't.  I finished the last painting at the end of the day.  My first painting for the day was selected to be sent to The Source magazine on behalf of our group to publish on their art page. 

The paintings were the study painting from "William Newton" book.
