    Yesterday's character day things.
    There's about 12 other pages of figure studies I haven't posted because they aren't really worth posting.
    I did heaps of drawing from photos and then applied it all from imagination. All the characters are from imagination. Forcing myself to not use reference after doing studies and I'm learning heaps more by doing it. I still need alot of practice with drapery and folds.




    progress on sargent study

    Have a good one!

    good looking self portrait , it seems you have quite the red skin there, did you get burned or something?

    Hi thanks alot guys...

    Okay here's my little story. I spoke to Min 'Bumskee' Yum last weekend and he gave me much needed advice about my study routine. He basically said I need to focus on one thing, and get really good at that before I try to do everything. And Also to just study the basics such as perspective and form. And IF I try to get good at everything, I will jsut be average at a bunch of things rather than be really good at something, because you get employed for a specific role.
    I was learning tonnes of stuff with my schedule and it was really training my self-discipline but I now feel that I need to study the basics rather than be too subjective.

    My perspective skills and other basic foundational things are pretty weak so it was leaving my finished work and even sketches pretty lacking. So taking Min's advice I've started with Loomis' Successful Drawing, taking my time and doing studies for each page, I will then be moving onto Loomis' Creative Illustration.

    I feel that once I have done solid study on these books, I will then be focusing on Environments, so might make a similar schedule for studying that subject but keep it more adaptive to my learning progress, rather than a strict daily thing.

    So I will probably be taking a break from browsing around CA.org for a while, about a month or 2, and hopefully return to post much more solid art.

    See ya then

    Hey man, love the stuff you have been doing.

    Some good practices I think might come in handy, especially with landscapes:

    1) Try to break the composition down into 4-5 broad values. This will relly help simplify things and make it more easy to organise the composition.

    2) think in planes... try and see the directing each facet of a landscae is facing. Imagine a plane has an arrow stuck into it at right angles to the surface/target. If you know this its easier to see how much of the main light it recieves, ie how much the arrow ppoints at the light, but also allows you to see that when we are looking at the side of the arrow, bounced light from behind the face will be more prominent. for bounced light look herehttp://www.treadwaygallery.com/onlin.../large/985.jpg)

    3) Try maybe doing some paintings in just black and white... You can learn a lot from them and it will allow you to focus on sorting out some elements without haveing to worry about colour... which can be confusing in the extream. If you can get a feeling of solid shapes, lighting nad atmosphere in Black and white, colour wwont be too far off.... usually when there are colour issues, they are underlying value issues behind it causing the probllem.

    4) Try and think of light as
    1-light hitting the object-shading, shadows and bounced light.
    2- Light passing through objects/volumes - atmospherics, refraction/glass, subsurface scattering etc.
    3- light hitting a lens/eye - Exposure(painting calls this low/mid/high key), depth of field blurring, glare and highlight blooms.
    Thinking of these as separate effects of light will help you understand what is going on when you study images.

    5) most importantly and last learned for me is SLOW DOWN. Don't paint many strokes where one will do. Speed comes from learning to do it effectively. Visualise what you are painting and then put down a stroke that describes your vision. Painting without a vision in mind is like riding a bike round a park without any idea where you want to go. You might get lucky and find it... it might take hours it might take minutes, you don't know. Learning to have a map in mind and if necessary, get off and walk till you know the way, but once you are doing things well, you will be able to get there so fast!

    Anyways, here is a paint over for ya... hope it helps. I am busy trying to apply all of the above myself, especially that last one.... its so important and I have spent so long making 10 marks a second describing nothing that its a hard habit to break!

    Keep well

    Hi everyone, it's been a while, here's some things. Most is pretty old but figured I'd show some things I've been doing. I restructured my website so now all the old image links have messed up
