I’ve mentioned this before: porcelain is, for me, really one of the most difficult subjects to paint. This little teacup was no different.

Oil Portrait Painting by Faith Te

On another note, I recently completed my portrait assignment for Different Strokes from Different Folks. It feels great to finish another portrait again — and an oil portrait at that! Visit my other blog, Art Studio, to read a little more about the painting. The direct link to the post is: Oil Portrait Painting.

    I was/am really impressed with the quality of paint you applied. I don’t understand how you keep it so in control. I always end up with brush marks and the likes.
    Anyways great job!

  15. Faith Te Says:

    Ms. Claire, Mr. Rishi, Ms. Nithya, Ms. Sylviane and Ms. Julie, thank you very much for stopping by and leaving comments! I do appreciate it!

    Jonathan — Thanks! Try using a mop brush or any brush that is very soft and quite loose unlike the bristle or hog brushes. They’re great for keeping edges soft and for blending. Hope that helps.

    Happy New Year, everyone! Paint on!
