Painting practice

Some recent painting practice. The first is a blurry crying eye. The other is a cool picture I found on the internet in 2012.

First: I drew the sketch.

Second, I painted over it with transparent acrylic paint. (Learned this lesson the hard way... always check if it's transparent or opaque!)

I haven't fully grasped the concept of how underpainting works, but I still love how these came out. The joy of being an artist is knowing you can do whatever you want. When you are just doing art for fun, I don't think it matters to do things the "right" way.

My next step will be to glaze these paintings with color once they have dried. Which won't be any time soon, but I am so looking forward to it!
