As you may have read in my last article, I had fun drawing a little leprechaun gardens (not to be confused with those houses). But I found him very gray, a shame for my poor leprechaun.
So I decided to do something! And off you go!, I took my drawing, I fixed on a board and I made a little poncif (a copy of my drawing made with an iron pencil) and this is my little boy ready to paint!
Well, I spent a lot of time trying to put a coat of paint without extending! Fortunately and thanks to the ‘poncif’, I could start over and over. When I finally understood that I took too much paint on my brush, I could begin to cap and jacket.
Well, it’s far from perfect but I like him. Except for the face. I still can not make flesh color correct and as a result, I spread of painting and he lost his facial expressions. But I’ll manage to do it, I tell you, I’ll manage to do it …..
I ‘m going to say you that the drawing is 10 cm (3.94 inch) high and it is an oil painting on drawing paper. (with two layers of gesso anyway!)
