Re: Jeffro Jones Small Paintings Thread

I'm still thinking about how to paint a pineapple.
It's trickier than I thought.
This is a sketch that I was so unhappy with, but a week later, it's not as bad as I thought.
Not quite right yet, though...



This was done on paper, 120gsm archival stock.
So I took my painting outside to get a photo in good light, when a giant beetle flew into my head.
They're not very good flyers!
But look at the size of it!

Re: Jeffro Jones Small Paintings Thread

I like how you put in those intricate shapes inside the objects, I think that's a really cool style to have, especially with landscapes, where you can combine realism with abstraction. The colors look great too, with their diversity. I don't think I have any advice for this or any angle at which to critique; this is your own style and you seem to be doing well with it. I say as long as it's inspired, that's when the best results come and you will have more knowledge of painting revealed to you when you are ready to receive it; I believe this is the way of painting.

Thanks for your remarks DreyDay.
I hope that you are right - well, I'm sure you must be - that we will increase our knowledge by striving to improve.
cheers

Maybe, Ronsu!
I will take any tips the Muse has to offer

Here's something from a delivery person, talking of tips:
I was painting, in my "studio", which is a tiny corner of the tiny living area of my tiny flat.
So a delivery guy arrives, and carries in a package, and, apologizing for my humble dwelling, I say something like:
"Well, you find me trying to paint in this tiny place..."
He replied: "It's not the size of the room, mate, it's the size of the idea."
That's not bad!!!

That's not a delivery guy. That's a philosopher who delivers packages.

They text you their "how did we do?" survey. I made sure to give the maximum "thumbs up"
