View Full Version : Four Classical's Go Deep

06-05-2013, 01:51 PM
Welcome to another classical project -

I am using these four classical works to study establishing depth.

There are lots of techniques available here.

I'm gonna copy some of these pieces, maybe exaggerate the method, maybe try and incorporate all of them in a montage ..just have fun. and see what I can discover.

I hope you can join in the fun!

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/08-Jul-2013/88676-archi.gif finally got to do one of these -

Here is the Acimboldo's Winter in inks. I learn ALOT! Loved every moment.

(I only wish I'd done this on better paper - I just was messing around in my cheap sketch book.....scratched thru the paper a couple times with the nib.... live and learn)

Robin, this is wonderful. It is too bad it wasn't done on better paper...but isn't that the way it always goes. The posted picture looks good, anyway. Maybe you could back it with something. It is a keeper.
