Re: Timbetan Monk in chiaroscuro

Shark,
I can understand your position. However this is one of those paintings where
I first started playing with layering. In defense simple portrait type paintings have always been something I have been drawn to. And quite honestly I just wanted some feedback on weather or not it achieved a sense of introspection.

Cool Re: Timbetan Monk in chiaroscuro

I think you did a great job My only critique that I can give is to attempt to get the texture of the fabric of the robe. Really get that tangible feeling

Still, I think it's a wonderful painting
Scott.

Re: Timbetan Monk in chiaroscuro

Thanks Scott,
You are right the robe doesn't have the texture I would like either. Got so involved with the face and didn't get into the robe as much as I should have.

The clothes they wear are as much a part of the character study as the face.
My tendency now days seems to paint what I am interested in and let the rest fall into shadow. But then I am interested in that deep tenebrism.
