    Oil Change

    About a year ago
    I started a new study which kept me
    from painting...

    I realized I miss it.
    Now im trying to get back into it.
    Maybe I will post a
    new quick painting study here every
    day and maybe you
    feel like giving me advice.

    Heres the first one:

    I only used ultramarin blue, burnt sienna and white

    hi
    quick update.
    since im visiting my parents i had to work digital.
    i figured to get my paintings more precise it might be benefitial to practice line drawings as well.

    There looking very structural so far, so well done. I have a feeling though, your not confident with the shapes you put down and are erasing and re drawing to get a shape to work, If Im right in saying that maybe just try and observe a little bit more clearly what your trying to say and then draw the shape. Until the eye and the pencil are one! mwahaha!

    isnt that what were all aiming for?
    but youre right about the erasing, hope to get more confidence in the future

    ok heres the painting,
    its not entirely finished, but i feel like moving on to a new piece. it was supposed to be a study but took me several sittings to do
    next one i will try to do quicker by pre mixing colors on my palette and making quicker decisions.
    I think i ruined the hair and beard by adding too much warm color and making it too dark. used to look better before i went into it
    now i know for next time (i still hope it will look better when its dry)
