The World of XPILAR - PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY AND ART CONTEST WEEK #026 - Savoring the pleasure


Dear Steemians and World of Xpilar fans

This time, I would like to participate to the contest with an acrylic painting that I worked on recently. It has really been a long time since I last painted but I still wanted to dare and share it with you.


I didn't take a lot of "work in progress" pictures. I don't know why. Potentially because I didn't see the painting to go anywhere. But I finished it and I even enjoy looking at it now.

However, I realized, painting is very similar to sports. You have to get in shape. Train up. No matter if you're gifted or not ... in the end, you have to have your skills in great shape in order to paint. I think that I will take the chance of blogging here and continue to paint and share my works with you. Even though I feel much more confident with showing my films than showing my paintings.


Also, painting is a fantastic lockdown activity. It keeps you away from the screens as well, which is an additional positive factor. Please feel free to get in touch in case you want to start painting during this ongoing covid period. It's much more enjoyable if you can share your struggles and frustrations. Because one thing is clear: A painting never reveals itself in the same form on canvas as it did before in your phantasy.

Enjoy these beautiful winter days! Please share your paintings with me below. I'm extremely curious about what you come up with!

That is such beautiful acrylic work, I really like it. Sometimes I struggle with colors as first use too dark then it is difficult to lighten them up. But your work is just inspiring :)

Hello @steff1 ! Thank you very much, I think I need to be more confident with the choices of colour, because it dries much faster than oil ..I used to paint in my teenage years but really just picking it up now with Steemit..thanks for the nomination!! And I am curious about your next work too , 😘Elena


I think it is great idea to restart. Actually I have restarted to do painting and drawing since I joined Steemit 3 years ago, until then for nothing since my school :) We will keep an eye on your development :)


Wow, so you have never taken any classes? You're all self-taught? WOW!
