    Time went by since my last visit here =) I like what I see from the last updates.
    Jewellery is coming along nicely, especially the necklace with the red gems. I hope there's even a bit more contrast to come. Jewellery is a topic for drama and passion, so high contrats would be very fine.
    And I wanted to say that the painting with the flowers turned out to be very beautiful. I like the purple ones next to the daisies most.

    thesadpencil I'm still working on pushing my values. I know I'm weak there, but it's a slow process for me - I'll get there.

    qlotzan I will be working on some imaginative stuff soon. I have ideas and am working towards them. I doodle all the time at work imaginatively, but as it's on papers containing confidential information I can't post it.

    Valyavande Contrast is the main goal of this one. I really want to push it.

    Thanks everyone else. No update as I'm doing my brother's accounts in the evenings as his tax return has to be filed by the end of the month and I only got the stuff that week. No pressure.

    Hi,
    I really like the figure drawings in #1578 Wel done!
    Your flowers are delightful. Next time you are going to paint a bouquet of flowers, try to decide on a few of the flowers for a focal point, and blur the rest a bit. There are often many lost and found edges in the shadows and highlight of flowers, try to locate them, it will help you to simplify painting the flowers!
    You're still life is looking good!

    I'd like to be completely traditional, but it's fun sometime to relax with digital.

    SP done tonight after a bottle of wine as per usual.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and helping me out Black Spot. I wish I could return the favor, but I'm afraid that I've aid to render.

    I love the use of color in the self-portrait, particularly the purples. Something about them just ties the rest together I feel.

    Hello Black Spot! I've missed a lot of paintings in here. I really enjoy the still lifes of the jewelry and baubles. And wow, the figure drawings are really beautiful!

    There is something about oil paints which does not mix with alcohol, so the digital is probably a good idea for late nights.

    Your soul and mind will is radiating
    through your paintings now Mrs. Spot.
    No force will save you from being
    a super being from now on.
    You have broke through the barrier.
    I can see your shadow on the midnight sky.

    I do do stuff sober as well, but painting myself takes a bottle.

    LP you are mad.

    Update on still life. Finally all the accounts are done and the pressure is off at work. This means I can spend some quality time painting, except Wales were playing Ireland today and I had to down tools for that. Wales won - result!

    This is probably the last you'll see of this for a while. I still have some tweaking to do before I let it completely dry and then go mad on it. As oils can take a while, don't hold your breath. I'm also working on something else that if I finish this evening I might post - I'm such a tease. Then I want to start on something a lot bigger. I've started doing thumbnails and next I have to get my reference to pose for me.

    I'm busy working out a composition and this is one is part done. I want to transfer it to a large canvas (approx 3' x 4'), so I'm making sure I get it right before I start. It's based on part of a life drawing sketch I did a few months ago. The final version will not be as empty and the next bit is probably going to cause me problems.

    So far it looks very interesting - I like the classical feeling you've brought to the figure, it reminds me of a master study. I'm curious to see more, so keep up the good work!

    Hi. I think that portrait is looking pretty good. However, a few things that strike me... You should probably try to push the values a bit. Especially the highlights. Right now you're sort of dabbing around in the same value range and it's making the image look flat. Also, you seem to be painting with pretty gryish/cool colors. Even if the light is fairly cool, the skin will still be pretty warm colored as it trends away from the diffuse highlight because of subsurface scattering. Especially in the cheeks and nose. Also her jaw looks a bit low.

    Might scrap that last one. I've been back to the thumbnails. I have someone agreeing to pose for me next week, but I want to get the composition down first. I want the figure compact and almost out of sight amongst over large flowers. I scrapped loads before I started going in the right direction. The first, the figure is wrongly posed. The second is closer, but I need to work on the position of the flowers more. I'll probably do this on the computer. Even the type of flower might change if I thought it would make a better composition.

    Pretty cool so far. Off the top of my head, I wonder if the image would read better if the flowers were round (like posies or something) and if she were reaching up, pushing the flowers aside so she can peak out. Here's a photo I found that's kind of similar to what I'm talking about to give you a better idea.

    You're work is so diverse. It's like your style changes with every post. One thing I noticed was as I went through your pictures, is that it improves a lot along the way. I don't consider myself a great artist so I don't feel I have a right to critique something that I can't do myself. Keep up the good work, hope to see more from you soon ^^.

    Be very careful about having your subject dead centre in your composition. It can make it very static. You can introduce movement with the variety and position of flowers. But you knew that anyway...

    The photo study from earlier is really nice. I like the softness of her skin and the lovely different hues you used on her skin tone. Your thumbnails look promising and I am excited to see you continue working on the concept.

    Nice Blackspot, I'm wondering if maybe making the flowers different sizes might help? not much but just to break up your composition that little bit more?
