GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Open Forum Paint Out #3: CLICK MEEEE!
Year Created:
Medium: Photograph
Surface: Photo paper
Dimension: Whatever you want
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
We all learn a lot by looking at and critiquing paintings. What if a bunch of us do the same subject? The extra learning comes as we can see the different artistic interpretations of the same subject.

So...here's OPEN FORUM PAINT OUT #3. You've got two weeks to paint and post the displayed reference. Close date is Dec. 29.

A word on the reference. We aim for diversity in these paint outs but when the fall tree scene went out (#2), Karel (KTusa), said it was only for "retired people". Oh, you could feel the knife twist. But, hey, Rembrandt and Corot and all kinds of masters did landscapes. I think as long as you don't depict a litter of puppies rushing through the glade, it's art! But Karel called for "faster heavy stuff" and here she is. I snapped her in a restaurant in NYC. I didn't pick her up so I can't confirm if she's heavy, but she was fast. And Bizkit, painter of pulchritude, get out those acrylics.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Use any medium, any size. Post any time with your explanations.
And for detail hounds, if you want a high resolution image of the reference, email me:
[email protected]

GET OUT THOSE BRUSHES, AND PENCILS, AND PASTELS, AND SO ON.

:lol: :lol: actually I was just hoping it would be recognizably to everyone.
This was a lot of fun, it is my first participation in any thing like this. I want to do some more so keep it up.:clap:

The women have done all the paintings so far!

"guys" has become entirely angrogenous. it could be also that the male painters are lingering over the subject.

Complements to all lady painters, nice belly dancer paintings!

Thanks Bob, for the "faster heavy stuff" :)

It is not possible to paint the belly dancer, Im searching now a life exemplarily in the same costume:heart: and a painting week before the bodywork is ready! :lol:

I love the concept here!!!!!!!
I may or may not have the time to participate in this one, but believe me I will be doing some of these in the future. We have just moved to NC from LA this week, and its been hell trying to get this stuff set up and get back to normal if thats what its actually called. On top of that Ive got about 2 paintings that Im behind on, so I am working vigorously trying to attempt to to catch up with the rest of the world as we know it!!!

The colors around her body give her a great sense of movement. Looks good!

This is my version in Prismacolor pencils on black pastel paper.
Comments are welcome.

Looks like first prize to me. I'm wrapping up mine and, like you, I pulled her arm back so as to show more of her face. I had no idea you could get such opacity with colored pencils on black paper. This could be on the cover of one of those Prismacolor boxes.

Ron,
Wow...great job... I really like that you got all the detail in her face.

Here's mine. Oil, 16x20. I enjoyed doing this as I think painting a figure is the best challenge in improving one's art.
