Willie by ronmonroe Willie by ronmonroe
  This is my very first painting I have ever finished. I have dabbled with paint before but nothing too seriously. I usually work with art pens or ballpoint pens but I have gotten burnt out with them. They are extremely time consuming and unforgiving. So. I thought I would try my hand at painting. If there are any good painters out there that could give me some advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
  I thought maybe I would start with black and white for now and slowly introduce a little color as time goes on.

I have drawn this a couple of years ago in art pens. Here is that drawing:

What can I say, I like Willlie! The image was found on google, but this was just for practice and just for me.

tools: Acrylic paint on canvas

Omg... It's so impressive, the wrinckles and the texture you gave to It.. But well, I got to say you got to work a little bit more on the hair and the wrinckles from the right part of the face. The forehead looks like If It was flat I think you should work on It too. I know It's hard to do It but I also know you can so It becuase you're a very talented artist.

Your line work and detailed strokes are amazing! I would thought I would see this in a gallery priced for $800 or more. You may have mainly done your work with art pens but it shows that you are quite good with paint as well.
