I'm still learning how to do digital portraits. Angles, lighting, and shading are all things I need to practice on.
For today's portrait, I wanted to do a tribute painting. Many of you may have heard of the passing of Delores O'Riordan, the frontwoman of The Cranberries.
I listened to The Cranberries constantly in the 90s. I was still a kid, about 12-13 years old. I borrowed my dad's albums to listen to and just loved the lyrics and unique singing style O'Riordan had.
My favourite album, which I call the soundtrack to the beginning of my teenage years, was the 1996 release of "To The Faithful Departed." I got a used copy somewhere.. a flea market I think. The CD didn't have a case, but it never left my CD player so it didn't matter. This album resonated with me as a youth, as I struggled with depression and anxiety. The lyrics of the songs on this particular album spoke to me. Specifically, "Free to Decide." The music world lost a great talent today, and Delores will be missed. Thank you for your gift of music and helping me through the tough times in my younger years. 🌸🌸🌸 #art#music#thecranberries#deloresoriordan#deloresoriordanrip#art2ig#arts_promoter#workinprogress#artstrending#artsy#digitalportrait#digitalart#digitalpainting#artist#artgallery#drawing#artworld#artistsoninstagram#artfeaturedraw#artvertex#artist_exposure#ripdeloresoriordan
Этапы работы над одной из самых сложных для меня картин "Церковь Покрова на Нерли".⛪️🏞
В видео показаны 4 этапа, хотя их было намного больше.🎨🖌Несколько месяцев картина лежала незаконченной, никак не поддавалось небо, но все-таки я его победила.☁️💪🏻😊
...an unexpected encounter with Ken Done. We came to Sydney looking for an injection of inspiration via good coffee and access to great art. On our first day got so much more when we had a chance and candid chat wth artist Ken Done. We both now have a far greater appreciation of his canon of work. On a personal note, with regards to discussing my own work, l went from goosies to tearing up at the frankness reached in such a brief encounter. My only regret is that whilst still reeling from acknowledging my own challenges that l forgot to thank Ken for being so frank about his and my work and so generous with his time. So, thank you so much for your words Ken ...given me much food for thought! #youjustneverknow#kendone#kendonegallery#wickedbubble
