I freehand painted a blue nose,
and I got pretty gosh darn close.
The nose did not look like a cucumber.
So twenty portraits must be a magic number.
It was actually easy to sculpt,
and it came out without a fault.
Still, at the end of the day,
freehand is not the way.
We should paint real people, and real faces,
and real places.
It is best to practice,
by painting a masterpiece,
But I was on a mission,
to improve my style and composition.
And I think my next meow,
is painting metal somehow.
It is about glitter makeup or a shiny dress,
but goes far beyond to impress.
For one, suits of armor shining in the sun,
simply cannot be outdone.
They are majestic and mysterious,
and can even a make a bobble head look serious.
Gold is actually a color mix,
a combination of just about six.
And it includes a reflection,
so you have to go in the right direction.
Armor, can make a model proud, or seem muscular,
or just handsomely shiny and spectacular.
Plus, who wouldn't want a portrait of old,
in which they hold an enchanted spear and sword.
Though we can paint portraits without a hiss,
there is an important lesson in all of this.
Perfect portraits are just THE START,
there is no end to the mastery of art.
And - oh my gosh - photos are teEerrRrrible and
unfair, and completely void of feelings.
They must be painted to get the portrait right,
this is why the world needs painters and all their might.
A portrait is not just about the face,
we must often fill all the space.
There is plenty of room to tell a story,
be it superpowers, mystery, or some glory.
Perfect portraits are a great might,
but to paint them completely right...
To make the owner smile...
we must paint them in a colorful style.
