Hi everyone, I have never really posted anything here except for the required 2 posts before uploading an image. However I have found this to be a very informative and lively forum.
Below is a painting I did a couple of months ago in an attempt to have a dialogue with the old masters.
Since I don't paint in oils a lot of adjustments had to be made to paint in acrylics.
I did learn quite a lot from this one. Mainly to next time smooth out the canvas with some kind of medium to give it a surface with less weave.
taking a photo with this method is not an easy task.
The camera seems to go right thru some of the glazing.
I also want to build up more texture in the skin tones.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
