Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Well, Jim, I've yet to begin. The good news is that my Indian Yellow came last evening at last (I had ordered it online), so I hope to get to this today or tomorrow if I'm able to. I can't say how much it means to have you offering this class to us. Thank you so much for your time and generosity!

Is the reflected light not correct in my painting in comparison with the highlights?

Catherine, WB- nice!

Jim- Ashley did a monochrome version as well. I will post tonight, dont have time this morning.

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Ron, yes go ahead with your color version. I can't wait to see Ashley's painting.

WB, This looks really good. You made a huge improvement as far as values from your first one. Yes that reflected light on the bottom of the shadow is light. Reflected light can never be a light as the area that is in direct light. So you have to analyze every value in the piece to figure our where the problem is. It looks like the shadows could still be darker. The 2 objects are closer than the reference and that will affect the shadows and how much color is reflected as well.

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Jim- this is Ashleys version of monochrome painting. 95% of this she did herself. All I did was demonstrate briefly how to wipe off paint with paper towel, how to hold brush etc. The drawing portion was all her. She did better than I did, darn kids!



There is a strange bluey shadow in this photo thats not in the painting in real life.

As for me, I was too dark in my mid tones. Mainly due to my inexperience in mixing colors and nuances of the handling of oil paint.

Ashley, Wow! You did a great job. The edges of the apple and pear against the background are fantastic—soft in some spots and sharp in others.

You can move on and do it in color now. Maybe you can help your dad out on his too.

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Don't know why I didn't see this sooner. What a super opportunity to learn about oil painting from a master. Jim paints just like I wish I could.

I'll be back often to study the lessons and advice. Now I wish I'd taken up oils instead of acrylics.

Hi Jenna. I remember you from D & S.

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Attempt number two. I tried to work on the previous canvas I did but just made it look worse so I started a new one. This is HARD! (for me anyway)



Okay, I'm off to read up about values cause I am really struggling with them

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Well, hi, Andrea! How nice to see you over in this corner of WC! I'll be taking this class too, so I guess we're going to be classmates.

Jim, you've unearthed my procrastinator gene; you can see I haven't gotten started yet. My birthday is Monday, so it's an eventful weekend between that and the Super Bowl. Still going to do it though, just as soon as I can!

Everyone's work is looking so great!

Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

I went back to look at what I've done and I think I like the re-do of the first one better than the second attempt. Here it is:
