    The still life Painting Journey

    So i recently entered a still life painting class, and i just felt in love with it.. the genre and the oils, it was my first time experimenting with actually painting traditionally with any kind of medium. Its changed my life..

    Here ill post my progress in painting from earliest to latest.

    And here... we.. GO!

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Nice improvement. How long do you get on each one or does it vary?


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Yes, the violin turned out great.
    How did you make the strings?
