work in progress
I've been wanting to try painting close ups of body parts on large canvases. This is the beginnings of my first stab at this, starting with the lips/nose series which is tentatively entitled a rather obvious "Lip Service." We'll see.
While cropping and position are important, the goal is to get this to a very realistic stage while still maintaining a painterly quality. I'm beginning to think this would be a lot more fun if I actually knew what I was doing.
Love it-great smile!ReplyDelete
You TOTALLY know what you're doing! It looks awesome. SO realistic and yes it does have that great painterly quality. I completely love it. What's the next body part?;)
Wow you sure picked a challenge for yourself! Teeth are notoriously difficult to paint. You nailed the subject, though.ReplyDelete
You are amazing - way to nail down a study! This is looking good girl! Lips are my difficulty, I could learn something here...Wow!ReplyDelete
That's a unique and appealing idea! And so well done!ReplyDelete
Suz, you know what you're doing! :) And professionally, I must say "Beautiful smile, gorgeous teeth, and very healthy gingiva"ReplyDelete
Beautifully painted, Suzanne! Teeth is not easy! You did an incredible job with it!!!ReplyDelete
Those lips are soooo real! And the nose!
Her smile looks so genuine!
I don't know how you do this! Everytime we come- we just cannot believe that you really did it!
An amazing work, I am very impressed by the teeth!Bravo!ReplyDelete
This smile reminds me of Prince William's smile. You go, Suz. You know what you're doing. Don't kid yourself, friend!ReplyDelete
great idea and project suzanne ... i'm just trying to get to grips with the basics of all the features !ReplyDelete
Oh, you know what you're doing! It looks GREAT. I look forward to this series - it sounds original and fun.ReplyDelete
Love the original ideas that you come up with, you are an inspiration!ReplyDelete
This is looking quite amazing already ... can't wait to see it finished. ;-)ReplyDelete
Well I sure am lovin it.ReplyDelete
MMMMM... this is going to be a great series to watch unfold. You are off to a roaring start with this!ReplyDelete
If you knew any better what you were doing this guy would have bit me through my computer screen. Just sayin'...ReplyDelete
Hi there Suzanne!... "You" always like to sink yer teeth into BIG ideas... and this one sure follows that path!ReplyDelete
Sometimes it is necesssary to feel uncomfortable and to create untested waters... to break new ground!
I like "cheekiness" of the title... HA HA!!...the painterliness of the work... and add to that the near abstractness of the subject in form at least!
Going to be a very interesting "body" of work to look at! I look forward to seeing more Suzanne!
What a unique idea! Well, so far it looks as though you most definitely know what you are doing. The teeth look incredibley real already - I assume those are finished? And the lips look soft and moist too. Completely brilliant masterpiece on the way, I can feel it!ReplyDelete
I get that feeling, "if I only knew what I was doing!!" I do think this could actually work and be very interesting, I think the possibilities are endless. Good luck!ReplyDelete
If you don't think you know what you're doing we're all in trouble. This piece is fabulous and I'm trying to wrap my head around the scale of this. You should photograph your painting hanging in a little vignette to give us a sense of the grandness of this painting. Love your new idea and can't wait to see more works come about!ReplyDelete
I just started a few body part paintings myself, but yours BLOWS ME AWAY! Where you cropped it is so funny! The scale of it! The almost finished parts are amazing, can't wait to see it finished!ReplyDelete
I invite you to visit my
Oh Suzanne - you are so brave! You know what you are doing and you are blowing us away with your creative ideas and painting expertise! Bet everyone who looks at "Lip Service" returns that big pretty bold smile!ReplyDelete
You're going to have so much fun cropping, so much fun enlarging, so much fun finding the unexpected perspective. And we're going to have so much fun seeing how it all works out, time after time. Can't wait!ReplyDelete
You definitely know what your doing!!ReplyDelete
Hi.. this is Bhavna and I truly admire your work. You really have an unconventional style, although quite different from mine but I genuinely respect it because it is unique. It would be great if you see my work at www.mesmerisingstrokes.com and we exchange our thoughts and broaden our insights.ReplyDelete
