Re: Still life

Small study of lemon and limes (about 9" x 7"). Probably will go more into detail once completely dry, not sure yet.

Have a good one!

Re: Still life

Your realism has gotten alot better from the first works your posted. Is there something that your doing different. Or just practice. Thanks for sharing

Hey Ellis, thanks! Hope all is well... Actually, I stepped back from painting for a while and went to drawing for a few years and sort of creating my own program. Never had any urge to take courses (online especially) except some free staff on YouTube and it was not practical to drop everything because of the hobby, if you know what I mean.

So, learning basics in drawing, value as the most important part (in my opinion, not an expert in drawing at all) and, of course, practice as much as time permits. Have couple of threads as sort of a journal in drawing forum. Obviously, after few attempts, I realized that I had no clue about the drawing as well ! It's much easier to go with that type of experience into color nuisances, I guess.

When it comes to painting, still working on brush control and manipulation of the paint because all my earlier "exercises" (for the lack of the better word) were done by just loading and pressing the brush in same manner. Charcoal drawing will train hand (at least in my case) to have a variety in pressure and manipulation. Of course, much easier said then done .

Hey, thanks again and all the best.

Zoran

Re: Still life

Right on, I enjoy drawing as well. I've dabbled a little in charcoal and I find it much more realistic than graphite. With graphite having that shine and darks aren't dark enough. It's just not as solid you know. Although it's not quite as precise. There again is that internet thing and taking a zoomed in photo to see every detail someone wouldn't see otherwise.
