Do you remember the oil paint smell! It’s so good! So I took the paints out and felt like painting, I started with a couple of landscapes, and then a couple of rush portraits. You need to paint sometimes or you will forget.
My sister is sometimes making photoshoots for creative purposes, so I lent some portrait photos from her shoots for reference with her permission. It’s pretty hard to find serious portrait references.
The first portrait started out as a realistic one but then I painted over it and made it into a blue vampire.
Photograph and model:
The second portrait from this month, is another model from my sisters photoshoots.
This is inktober and where is the ink! Still inside the pot! NO! This is wrong. So here we go, lets free the ink! Maybe it will turn into a raven.
Some of the raven painting are available here in the art shop.

My eye started twitching from joy, I saw a jackdaw looking for food and it found a bug, picked it up and went to a nearby puddle to wash it before eating. What a neat little dinosaur.
Had some fun too, painting smoky ravens is always a great feeling. Splash splash! I added four new artworks on paper.
Get some ink and get to painting!
