Oolong's Art & Design

The Rose


An acrylic painting of Sheena Ringo, Japanese singer. Dunno what else to say about it. I needed some practice with acrylics and I hadn’t painted anything in forever. So I just found a photo in the Japanese music magazine and my roommate gave me an assignment to finish a piece of art by the time she came home.

I need better acrylics than the cheap Basics.

Media: Acrylics, mat board
Time: Roughly 3-4 hours.

    this is most certainly, one of the most beautiful paintings I’ve seen, the biggest problem is that I can’t tell which is more beautiful, the face or the rose? O_O

      Ahh, an interesting observation. The photograph’s composition does have that kind of effect. Thanks for the compliment, by the way!

        you are welcome -w- (how long have you been using acrylics?)

          I first started painting with acrylics maybe about 9 years ago, but I didn’t really get how to control the paint until 7 years ago and I only use it on occasion. I’ve definitely gotten rusty.

            but the best thing about art is that its forgiving and that you can get back on your feet quickly -w- (of course maybe its another case for acrylics)
