    paul cezanne portrait.

    Not sure how to get those textures. Also the face is a lot thicker in mine.

    I did feel i had success with my approach. I spent more time on the outline which made the whole process a lot easier.

    nice work and effort. good. The latest image would benefit from a more textured brush to capture the surface which is so important to edges and mood. The wyeth image has some shape differences (notice the angles of the feathers) that if you were to take an extra 15 mins early to check your shapes before rendering would speed up the process later and give you more accurate results. keep up the great work and really focus on those shapes and edges.

    Hey Jason,

    Thanks for the feedback

    With this next painting - Van Gogh's Skeleton - i spent some more time on the shapes (there is evidence of this with the line i accidentally left on the original). You're right. It did speed up the process. I also spent a bit more time with the textures. This is where I need some work. I really don't know the brushes in photoshop. There are too many to choose from!

    Here it is:

    nice work. you can crisp up the focus of your image as you are a little blurry. Fastest way would be to run a sharpen filter. Also try to capture the paint surface/thickness/texture when it is so obvious in the masterworks. This looks good so far start wise so keep it up.

    Hey Jason,

    Thanks for pointing me to that sharpen filter function! I can see how useful that will be. I can see that my textures are off. I need to become more familiar with the photoshop brushes.

    Here is my latest portrait by Repin. I think it's called the Sergeon?

    Here is a painting by Beksinski. I like the sense of size that he captures in this painting. I'd like to develop that feeling of size in my own paintings.

    I have a question about photoshop. How can I select a part of the canvas to use the sharpen filter with?

    I guess the server has been down. I've done two paintings in that time. Here is my second one, a portrait by John Singer Sargent.

    This is my 20th painting. Does this mean I move onto the first part of the Level up Series?

    Thank you very much. Though life got in the way and I took a large break between my first painting and my last, I am firmly committed to daily practice.

    I am looking forward to levelling up!

    Keep pushing those shapes. You are making progress with accuracy there. more!!
