Face sketch

I donot know this lady. She just came out from my pencil sketching practice. I did not use any reference photo for this. I was just trying here to learn the proportions between parts in a human face. Her nose is not really in order. I did this sketch on a scrap watercolor paper, about 3.25x3.25 inches.

A farm shed

This is a small farm shed that we always pass by when we take our short walk to the farm area north of Enschede. The shed still looks good and every time I glance at it I am always wondering whether it is still being used. 
I am glad that finally I decided to paint it because it has always been my plan. I based this painting from my own photograph which I took about two weeks ago. This is painted in acrylic on acrylic paper, size 30x40cm.

a rose from somewhere

On a canvas panel, I directly painted this rose without any pencil sketch and an actual reference image. I love roses so much that when I am practicing with my painting, they also become my favorite subject. This painting is still part of my acrylic paints exercises.

pear in dark background

Another painting exercise. I think that the right side of the pear is not dark enough. Have a nice weekend to you all.
