2021 Update on Colour - Silverline Fine Art
Adventure into Colour
This year I have embarked on an exciting journey into the world of colour in my artwork. I will always love the elegance of graphite and charcoal portraits but wanted to capture the vibrant colour of nature in my wildlife art as well. I have been learning as much as I can about pastel and acrylic art mediums and am very excited about the results that can be achieved! I hope you will also enjoy this journey into colour and new art mediums!!
My first pastel project: baby giraffe 12 inch x 16 inch portrait
Scary and exciting would highlight this project. I saw so much potential in this little giraffe but of course self doubt always comes into play in art. I watched numerous tutorials on pastel wildlife art and found a wonderful mentor, Emily Cross, from the United Kingdom who creates amazing pastel and acrylic wildlife artwork.
I learned so much about the layering process, depth and how to achieve detail with pastels and was very pleased with how this one came together in the end! I definitely held my breath when putting in the black background!!
Tiger in Watercolor Pencil
I experimented with watercolor pencils over Christmas and the result was this glowing tiger portrait!
Graphite Fox Portrait
I will still be creating graphite and charcoal artwork. I recently completed a lovely graphite fox portrait I have included here. I do love foxes!!!
New Pastel Project
I just started a new pastel portrait! Stay tuned to see how this beautiful cougar turns out!!
I have also started on another big one (24 inches by 34 inches), the finished baby gorilla piece will be ready to showcase soon!!
