New Venture - Painting

Late last year I did my first painting. I was visiting my friend and stayed up most of the night painting. It really intrigued me and mesmerized me in a way I hadn't thought.
It made me want to paint more as it wasn't completely bad - considering it was my first time painting an actual figure.

In January I bought a lot more paint and did a new painting of a little gold fish. It's still not all completed but I decided to post it anyway, so you can see the beginning of my painting adventure :)
I am not sure if I will finish it anytime soon but it did enjoy learning while painting this. It's very very different from the way you draw and it took some time for me to make it work.
It's a little hard to tell on this photograph but the cold shimmers in real life and give a more round feeling.

I am painting with acrylic and I only invested in some cheap paint that had premixed colours to start out easy :)

The canvas is 40x40cm (16x16")

I have another much bigger drawing in mind, when I dare to. With our new drawing table it might be easier to work with since it's hard to have a huge canvas at the couch.

It's really interesting to see you working with paints. It's a totally different thought process compared to drawing for sure. I find myself getting into different mindsets when it comes to working on a painting or drawing. It's looking good so far, I can't wait to see what more you'll do with it. =0

Hi dear Zindy!!! This Gold Fish is so sexy! :))) Really, very beautiful painting!
Zindy, I was very interested -do you plan to draw some scene from Twilight movie? Bella or maybe Edward?

I love painting! I only just recently really discovered my love for it as well (last fall) and have only had the chance to do a couple since then. I would love to see paintings from your hand though. I would imagine an angel or fairy painting by you would be absolutely lovely. :)

Lauren, yes, it is SO different but that's kind of what seem so appealing to me as it's a completely new world =) I can't wait to get more into it.

Jenea, great to hear from you =) Thanks so much. I hope you are doing well.
I did recently do a Twilight drawing, you can see it here: http://zindy-zone.dk/html/drawings/charcoal_drawings/twilight_love_bella_edward.html
I can't promise I will do more, I'm not a big Twilight fan ;)

Kassy, that's great, do we get to see yours sometimes too? I guess we can be newbies together :)
Oh yes, I think it would be amazing to do an autumn themed fairy painting as the colours can get so much deeper and brighter in paint.
