In the Mood for… Marc: Little Monkey
“In the Mood for… Marc: Little Monkey” (acrylic on canvas, 30 x 24 cm, 2016). Last weekend I finished my latest painting “In the Mood for… Marc: Little Monkey”!

In the Mood for… Degas – Dancers at Rehearsal – Part III
Last weekend I concentrated mainly on getting more details into the painting – like adding shadows to the arms and legs of the dancers on the left and also giving them faces, improving their dresses a bit and working on the background and floor. Hope you like it!

In the Mood for … Degas – Dancers at Rehearsal – Part I

I did it! Finally I´ve managed to shorten the nose from “my” girl 🙂 Better now, don´t you think? But of course, it´s still far from being finished…
In the Mood for… Vermeer – Girl with a Pearl Earring – Part III
Another week has passed and I worked more on my latest painting. As you can see, I concentrated my focus mainly on the nose: now she actually has some nostrils, but all in all, the nose is still too long for my taste:( But I didn´t paint it over at once, ´cause I think itContinue reading “In the Mood for… Vermeer – Girl with a Pearl Earring – Part III”
