    a 30 minute Rembrandt painting. I like the clear emphasis of the windmill due to the bright sky in the background. Furthermore i liked the balance of the composition because the black sky in the top left corner is balanced by the dark boat in the bottom left. Moreover there is a real sense of rhythm as the path and river verge left which contrasts with the windmill pointin right Name:  rembrandt.jpg

    I liked this painting by lucas graciano which I found when scanning through my copy of Spectrum 20. I particularly like the continuity and rhythm of the dragons and they create emphasis on the sorcerer. Furthermore the light produced by the sorcerer emphasises her even more. This was created in 35 minutes Name:  lucas-graciano-dragon-swarm.gif

    good observations. if you can keep working on hitting your values accurately and working out your placement map..so to speak...then you will continue to see improvement. Your values are still a bit off on this one and the female looks like she is placed quite a bit lower in yours. good to see you challenging yourself. This is not a quick easy painting to study.

    thanks Jason, I agree with you she's a little bit off. I'm always trying to challenge myself. Here is a study of the Salvador Mundi which has a very economical background making the figure stand out. Furthermore the focus of light creates emphasis on the head. I find this one difficult but here is my effort: (45-50 minutes) Name:  davinci.jpg

    i would suggest spending another ten mins on the face so that the piece holds a similar quality to the expression. That will bring up the quality a lot.

    I've spent another 15-20 minutes on the face but it still isn't great. I found his eyes extremely difficult Name:  davinci.gif

    this piece is by a favourite artist of mine Stephan martiniere. This piece has great continuity and the lines guide the viewer into the character in the centre of the composition Name:  martiiere.jpg

    A Manet study. I like the use of repetition of the bottles and her stitching with slight varieties in size and shape. This one took me a bit longer, around 1 hour Name:  manet.jpg

    A study of a painting from the French concept artist Sparth. I love the continuity of the rocks in the background and the rhythm created by the train track Name:  sparth.jpg

    i can't stress enough to keep a very close eye on your overall values. for example there is a little higher key atmosphere on the outside background behind the train, and the foreground of the manet study is missing bottles and shapes. Don't skip out before you get through the entire composition. That is part of the lesson. you can totally rock these if you just took a little bit more time. Other than that, the work you are doing is strong. Keep it up!

    I study from one of my favourite painters John Martin. I like the continuity of the forms throughout the piece which is why I chose it. Thanls Jason, I've tried to get my values better in this one: (roughly 45 minutes) Name:  john-martin5-the-deluge.jpg

    Keep a closer eye on your values. Look at those two waves in the middle of the piece. If you put a mark down and it is too light, then undo and adjust the value. Also, be sure you are putting as accurate of a mark as you can. An extra five seconds on each decision will yield a much more accurate piece and save time fixing later.
