Hey here is some more stuff iv bin working on in my free time
I did this seascape sketch in photoshop to allow me to play with the colours and composition for when i do the final piece on canvas.
The drawing below is of Allen Ginsberg, I sketchd it out pretty freely to get the basic proportions and shades.
I then went on to redraw the piece and overlay a solid grid system to shade and give the piece a kind of abstract form. The grid idea was inspired by Chuck Close
Comments and crits are would be greatly appreciated

Sublimus - Thankyou for the comment! I think the way it allowed me to create a different kind of frame for the face was cool This will sound stupid i know but by reference do you mean other peoples work and photos, that kind of thing? Cheerz

More work on Seascape
Because the painting is to go in my parents kitchen i had to try and incorperate orange and brown, So here is a quick colour study i did
I then went back to photoshop and played with the colours a little, i added a pier to the left hand side of the painting to give it some character.
This last image is after roughly an hour or so of painting the final piece.
And here a close up of central focus
Havent added the pier yet but i feel the colours and composition of the sky and sea are pretty solid, Let me know what u think would be really helpful

After another 2 or so hours of painting and noodeling im happy wtih the final painting. I have added the pier and re composed the sky by adding a couple of clouds in (maybe lightly to heavy?) then i increased the contrast in the centre of the piece around the sun with sum brown from the outside
Sorry bout the pictures glare i didnt know how to get good lighting with the camera
Here it without the glare from the side (still crap pic lol)
And heres a close up of the centre of the piece
Let me know what u think, would be cool to get some comments

Seagulls - Thanks for the comment, And i think thats probably my favorite aspect of the piece too i think the brown goes well with the creamy orange light source.
ImaGEEnation - Thanks again mate, ha thats something that I didnt really notice, but i think your right As im only just starting out as an artist i guess it is important to try different things.
P.S I will have some more up soon, guna try do some anatomy and figure work. Also bin thinking bout joining a figure drawing class, what do you think, are they good?
Thanks Again OA
