Talking Sketchbook Thread of Enialadam

Hi all, thought it was about time I made an anatomy thread of my own. So here it is.

Thanks for all the support

Copy of Lucien Freud's 'self portrait'

This is an acrylic painting, a copy of Lucien Freud's self portrait. This was my first attempt at a portrait using acrylics. There is a lot that could be improved but this was only meant to be a study of Lucien Freud's brushwork rather than an attempt at creating a tru likeness to his original painting.

(sorry for poor quality scan, I did try to tweak it in photoshop)



You can find Lucien Freud's original here: http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/aut....reflection.jpg

Hi...Enialadam....

Really like the brush work...was my fist thought, when I saw this painting....then I read what
you wrote about it....like it even more now ...not an easy thing to do, recreating that style
of brush work..
I think you did a GREAT job with it.....
Looking forward to seeing more of your works on here...

TAKE CARE
Glenn

enialadam,

Great to see your Anatomy Thread go up! I love Freud, and have copied this painting before ~ you learn so much from it! Really nice job with this so far ~ I think the chest may be slightly too big for the head, but your textures and sense of form in this is really coming along great.

Looking forward to seeing much more work here!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I find acrylics tough to use, dunno why. Good jub on the portrait.

Looking forward to the Oil painting.

enialadam,

Very cool! The first thing I would recommend is to kill the white with burnt sienna.

Looking forward to this!

Cheers,

Hi...Enialadam // Madalaine

REALLY glad to see you mastering OILS....the medium that can't be topped...you might try
a painting on stretched canvas...something about being able to push into it, and it's giveing or
flexing a little bit...creates magic..... feels like penetrateing space...the more pressure you
apply, the deeper into space you go...great feeling...can't be gotten with any other medium.
Becomes as pleasureable as frosting a cake after awhile..
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING MORE OF THESE ...

TAKE CARE
Glenn

Fl3wk: Thanks I've only ever tried oils once when I was very young I can't remeber what they were like. I find acrylics ok to use, although they dry very quick so it's difficult when you run out of paint and you have to try to find the same colour again.

Rebeccak: Awsome thanks for the tip! I haven't had chance to get this started yet! but I have a week of school, the usual term holidays, so hopefully I will be able to find a space somewhere in my house to get this started.

SpiritDreamer: Thanks! This one's on stretched canvas, hard to tell with the photograph. I really appreciate you stopping by

I made my very own sketchbook today! woot! I'm going to make a series of them with all kinds of paper.

I used cardboard for the cover, and covered the design with textured wallpaper. I love drawing on brown paper, so I bought a pack of brown envelopes haha and cut and folded them, it's not very neat :P the glue I was using wasn't very good, so had to use staples and they made the design look ugly, I will have to find out a way to make it work better:



I found the book binding tutorial here: http://www.wetcanvas.com/Articles2/2623/184/

enialadam,

Hey, this is very cool, thank you for sharing this! Ironically, I have always been terrible with anything crafty or related to crafts ~ so I admire anyone who can pull this off!

By the way, I don't know if this might be useful to you, but I just put together a few tips regarding Acrylic Painting:

Please feel free to add your own tips there as well!

Cheers,

One year ago I did a "try studying" (or how it must be translated). I was at the university in my hometown for 2 weeks and was allowed to try everything. I spend 2 days on doing a portfolio (well I hope this is the right word an d you get what I mean). This is really nice, I am carrying the most of my sketches in it. Your book looks really interresting, you should try to make a sketchbook

I am looking forward to see some more of your work

I'm going to go into a little more detail about my progress through this. I will add more explanation about the size of the canvas and the colours I am using a little later

Wow, just love the way you are driving this thread, traditional media is something that u dont see usually around here, I like them much, and I admire you, since I discover the photoshop capabilities for painting, I havent touch a real brush, have pass like 3 or 4 years since that .
