    Bernie's journey! Humbly welcoming critiques

    Hello everyone,

    For almost a year now I have been lurking around this website and its forums, amazed by the Artwork that is displayed.

    I am a beginner teaching myself to draw and paint digitally/Traditionally and have only been drawing seriously for at least just over eight Months and counting (although I have been doodling here and there for many years before)

    I would like to post my stuff here with hopes of getting directions and critiques on how I can improve my Skills.

    All of the images I will be posting in random order until I am done uploading have been done This year.

    SO HERE I GO!

    I have a long journey ahead of me, but I have determination and high hopes

    some of my posts are still waiting to be passed by moderators, I guess I need to post more to get an automatic upload to threads.

    beautiful work I will definitely be watching this one you have a huge amount of potential and you're already producing great work! I, like others, particularly love the warm portrait of the blond girl in post 4, and also post 11! The only thing I would suggest now, is to expand your lovely painting style and use of colour to some enviro studies too, I'd love to see them Keep up the amazing work, I'm looking forward to it

    Some Sanguine charcoal pencil timed figure drawings, having problem with time, I feel like I am not filling enough info when I am timed to do gestural sketches. I use http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php for figure drawing, it has been very helpful so far

    I have been venturing in the World of digital art but I am still feeling and it could be evident I lack basic fundamental knowledge of traditional painting. I struggle a lot with colour and other basic knowledge like composition and such. I have decided it is time to look back.

    I am going to focus mainly in reproducing old Masters paintings although most of them have been done on oil I will try my best to use these mediums first before I make the jump to oil.
