Hey Delo!... how are you buddy? Hope all is well. Thanks a lot, really appreciate it! Yeah, you're right it was underpainting in tempera and I quite like it but IMHO you need a nerves of steel (which I don't have ) in order to properly work with tempera... maybe, if I had more time on hand I would like to pursue this challenge but for now, hmmm don't thinks so. Way too many options by just adding different amounts of water, goodness me...

You're right, I prepare the key and by that you probably mean value, right? (as well as other parts) beforehand, but usually on darker side to leave room for the light and lightest light (well, that's the idea, not necessarily that it works, no clue there ). Actually, while working on drawing portraits I learned that by simplifying value range (usually 5 tones from light to dark) I get "near the ballpark" and it makes it easier to judge from there everything inbetween, so it's easier to envision where I want to go beforehand.

Hey, thanks a lot once again and all the best buddy!

Zoran

Re: Still life

I am doing better now, August has been tough, but that's pretty much behind us now. Tempera is such an interesting medium, seems better on traditional gypsum or chalk grounds, it is fun but as you said somewhat challenging in some aspects.

I noticed the key and cohesion in your work from a first glance, indeed the value ranges tend to be more middle and low key from most of the work I have seen of yours. It is a good practice to start by establishing the full range of values you like, something I used to do very often. Now I work from the middle and push up and down in my values until I get them where I like them, but this is not common practice and not easy to explain how I know how much more dark or light to add. Sometimes I don't even know, just guess and choose to leave it eventually.

Keep up the great work it's really inspiring stuff, I do like the visual impact of the darks quite a bit.

Re: Still life

Started as an egg study but it got complicated on it's way to the finish line...



Have a good one!

Re: Still life

Just saw this thread for the first time. Wow, I'm really impressed. You're a wonderful artist. Your colors are intense but they all fit with each other -- very balanced, yet each object is interesting on its own.

Hats off to you! I wish I could paint half as well.

Re: Still life

lovely pretty pictures

On the last one there are a couple of very noticeable drawing mistakes.

The egg has lost its form and the edges have become pointy. They look like rugby balls.And the beetroot has also lost its form and the curvature is lopsided. (Shadowing).

Very pretty though.
