Painting Chairs_Taking Shape

Hello everyone!!! I've been ripping and running recently, and haven't had a lot of time to post. I had to finish up a couple of swaps, send off design team articles ... and finally got a chance to work some more on my chairs ... they're coming along nicely.

I started with placing the faces ...



Then took a liner brush and sketched the shapes and started blocking in color ....



Looking at the black chair, I "saw wings" ...



Last thing I did tonight was to begin adding texture and tones for my undercoat ....



...I think they are taking shape nicely ...

Painted Box_I Finished Her


After stressing a couple of days with her hair ... I bit the bullet and just added a short wavy bob, using a wisp brush and watery acrylic paint. I didn't want her hair to become a focal point, taking away from her face ... so I kept it as simple as I could.
