lady leaving the house - wde

These days I am running a bit late on schedules and it took me a while to finish this painting.
It is difficult to remember how long it took, but in total must have been 4-5 hours in total. this is acrylics on canvas of size 20cms*25cms.
It was a good to finish it finally. There was no umbrella in the reference photo. But I just felt that she needed an umbrella when going out….!
I think the greens just got dark and darker and daker and have taken focus off the lady. But as I said these days I am happy with just completing the projects… Improvement will hapen along….Also the head portion looks bad. The hat is placed much above the head.... need to get back to bascis of drawing for a while I guess.....

lucky oak leaf - wde

For the wde of 17-Mar, I wanted to do the sailboats in the below photograph. But chickened out as I didnt want to take up something that would not get completed quick. But have saved that image to paint some time later.I did the leaf. Quick sketch with pen on drawing paper, must have taken 20 minutes. Size is approx 15cms*12cms

cars on the street - wde

I did this quick sketch. approx 10cms*14cms. It was very challenging in terms of the perspective and am pretty happy with the outcome. I have saved the reference picture to paint sometime in the future.
