Things to Try

A tumblr all about art, inspiration, and fun things to try at home.

penmouse:

I got a few more asks about tutorials recently, so I started making some tutorials about colours and the way I paint. It’s nothing difficult, but then I realised that not everyone has the same background, so I decided to first do two basic tutorials about viewing the head and the way a person makes strokes in order to make the painting tutorials easier on everyone.

Here are two fairly useful lessons that I got from my teacher before I started painting.

Also please take all of this with a grain of salt, if something doesn’t make sense with the way you work, always search up for more information or experiment!

You can tell by my expert vocabulary that I know what I’m talking about.

I’ve been guilty of drawing glasses wrong as well. Nice little tip

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
4 cups whole milk
1 dash water
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. red food coloring
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 - 4 tbsn. whipped cream cheese, room temperature
In a stand mixer, combine the heavy cream and sugar. Whip on medium speed with the whisk attachment for 2 - 3 minutes. Just before peaks form, add the cream cheese and whisk for another 2 minutes. Taste and add more cream cheese to taste. Be careful not to over whip though, or else you’ll have butter! In a medium saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat. Add a splash of water and the chocolate chips, constantly stirring gently. When almost melted, add the red food coloring and stir. When the chocolate chips are thoroughly melted, pour the hot chocolate into mugs and top with the whipped cream.

OHMYGOD YES

was working on this tonight, some female gesture references. Gesture drawing becomes more fun and useful when It’s more about the flow and the curves rather then the anatomy.but you’ll need a decent anatomic knowledge : )
