I think this one worked out a bit better than the previous one...

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - February 2017

Cam out a bit muddy and muddled here and there, but I'm pleased that I managed to capture the effect of light and shade. I'm beginning to see how one should do it: really push the contrasts!

Those are nice mangoes , Brian!

I am hoping to continue in the direction of classical painting and drawing:

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - February 2017

No time spent on classical drawing is ever wasted. Or at least, I like to think so - I never could get the hang of it. But I think all my attempts through the years did help with general development.

Highveld landscape - oil on board, 20 x 25 cm.
Loosely based this on a photo I took in the area where I grew up, and it is still pretty much how I remember it: sun-drenched fields, cattle and outbuildings...

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - February 2017

I decided I didn't like the cattle in the foreground, so I painted them out:



A high jump supervisor, based on a photo I took a week or two ago at a local primary school:



Oil on board, 18 x 13 cm (about 7 x 5 inch).

And some random sketches of horse riders:

Thanks. I think I am probably a more natural still life painter, but landscapes sell better, so I am trying to master the technique of painting them in oil. And thus, for this year, I am producing a whole bunch of small paintings of whatever catches my eye. Here another one; oil on panel, 25 x 20 cm:
