Re: Still life

Both of these are really charming. Composition of the second one with the glass reflections is great. I also really like all the subtle color shifts you have going on in the background of the first one.

Re: Still life

These are wonderful paintings. Your shadings and highlights are wonderful...something I need a lot of work on. How long have you been painting? I too am self taught and started about 18 months ago and I can not do anything this good. Hats off to you. Your paintings would bring in a good price if you tried selling them they look like old masters work. I think selling is part of the fun of the hobby especially if you are just doing it for fun and don't expect to make much money from it.

Thank you Terry! Well, I've been painting for quite some time but never got deep enough because of number of reasons.... but (there is always but ) I've been drawing all this years and found that these two media's are so closely interwined and the real progress can be made only (in my humble opinion) once drawing is under control. I am not expert in any of them, by any mean, and on this forum there is a number of individuals who are real masters at what we are trying to do. That being said, due to a lack of academic education, my only options was a harder way - trial and error while being stubborn enough to get better Not sure if that's enough? Thanks again.

Re: Still life

Instead of working in layers, I'll try to stick to alla prima for time being. Must say, I never did this because either lack of knowledge or lack of confidence but for the most part because of both... it would really turn into mess every attempt. Now, with some plan ahead, let me see how is this going to turn out. Idea is to make as many as possible little paintings with one or small amount of objects to get used to it and get more informations regarding nuisances of alla prima.

Both of these are done in pretty much same amount of time (2 hrs limit for each) from life and over last two days. I could see (now) things that needed to be fixed but next time I'll have to do it within time limit

Have a good one!

Re: Still life

Quick study, about 2 hrs, from life... main goal is to get better at proper value reading, then I'll deal with the rest It would be great to have this type of exercise once a week, but every few other is not bad as well

Re: Still life

Another small and quite quick (in my case) study from life... Wandering if I can keep up with one little study per week? ... main goal remains the same (as above).
