Re: Still life

Your still lifes are better than your portraits. I think you have found your niche.

Thank you sabana... I've been working on both at the same time and things are not happening over night This is one of my last portraits (practice, of course):



Actually, I dedicated a thread in drawing forum to see how much progress can be made by focusing on that aspect.

It takes a lifetime to realize what your good at. If your lucky you discover earlier.

Still life painters often strugglevwith portraiture for some reason or another. Its usually because they cant capture emotion.

Re: Still life

Zoran, that portrait is beautiful! Every bit as beautiful as your stills. You've captured a wonderful emotion in his face and I would pursue both genres were I you. You've got the chops!

Re: Still life

There is absolutely nothing from you work on both stills and portraiture that indicates one better than the other. Both are absolutely amazing and it would be foolish to suggest otherwise.

Re: Still life

Small study, roughly 4"x 6"... for these studies I'm using oil paper and quite cheap pigments so sometimes it can be a real struggle but that's what studies are for (I guess)

Re: Still life

With your understanding of edges, values, shadow and light, I don't think it would matter what you paint. Wonderful small pieces.
