My first oil painting
Like the girl with the uzi, nice oil painting, haven't been here for a while.
Hope to see you around my sb, I dig out old contacts if when I go way back
in my sb ! Your nudes are great LOVE IT ! I am glad you still post !
Yo iven! Thanks for the comments. I pop into your sketchbook from time to time also
Here are a few small paintings, 8x8" on wood. Trying to get familiar with Acrylic and Oil paints. Long way to go >_< !
Big dump incoming! Over the last year I continued learning to paint, so here are a few of my acrylic paintings on canvas.
I started creating sketch cards / artist trading cards and making a small local group for them. They're incredibly fun to do and I can keep a blank card in my pocket anywhere I go for doodling. Here are a bunch of finished cards as well as inked ones in progress that still need coloring. I'm using Copic markers to color these.
Hey =) Thanks for your visit on my sketchbook. I'd like to share a couple of secrets about traditional oil paintings: start with a simple palette (10-12 colors for start could be enough!) use big or medium brushes. Sure you can work all "alla prima", with fresh paint, but for the first oil portrait (The Pope?) you could considerate to prepare the first general color and shadows, than apply thinner colors when the first are dryed. This will help you to have a softer use of the colors, avoiding the hard edge scale of colors as happened under the Pope'eyes. And remember USE BIG BRUSHES for start, then more in get into the work, more you can go with precision. Go ahead and always push it to the limit!
I agree with BlindLynx, I think in most of your oil paintings it would be more beneficial to have bigger and fewer brushstrokes.
I really like the coloured lineart cards btw, keep it comin!
@BlindLynx Thanks for the helpful tips. I'll give painting another try soon and attempt to use large-to-small brushes method as I paint. I agree about limiting the palette too - I usually only have 7-8 colors but I should try limiting it further, as I do with markers on my sketch cards.
@Xephio Thanks man. I want to try painting with some larger brushes and then only adding a few small details in at the end. Come to think of it most of my brushes I own are quite small, I'll have to pick up a fat one
Here is a new trading card I drew in 10 minutes last night and then spent longer coloring verrry early this morning. I woke up long before my alarm clock so had some extra time to play
Great SB. For the paintings remember that objects farther away from us lose saturation and contrast (everything becomes more grey).
