Hi Amayartist ~
* I thought your work looked familiar
and then I found my comments on your Pink Garden Roses
* Not sure what happened between your New Portrait
- 12-19-18 and now...
... (may he rest in peace) was a systems engineer and one of his favorite computer phrases to me was -
"garbage in - garbage out."
I didn't mind
his comment because I was learning to code and his insight honed my logic skills.
As an artist
... sometimes our eyes give us - 'the garbage in' and our paintings give us ... a not so satisfying result.
That's why some artists wear glasses and there are erasers on pencils.
Fortunately so many artists
have traveled the road you are on that they have prepared solutions for your dilemma...
1- The Grid System
till your eyes see
the proportions and spatial relationships
2- The Eye Width System
It looks kind of ghoulish - but it really works.
3- Compare and Contrast
I have used both 1 and 2 in the past.
Today I like to use the modern day tool
- the computer ~
using Corel Paintshop Pro it allows me to cut, paste, and overlay an image (and adjust the opacity levels) to quickly see what is out of alignment... like so -
Hope these suggestions work for you too.
- and fortunately - these discrepancies can be corrected on one's painting without having to start over.
