    fabulous job. you are officially rocking and rolling. Just a hint more of a textured brush on the background and it would be very hard to tell them apart.

    keep it up.

    These grayscale assignments sure are teaching me a lot about value! I feel so much better about painting than I ever have before. Even with just sketching creatures and applying color on top of them.

    So for this Gros study, My eye was immediately drawn to the way she's leaning forward. Her focal point is definitely her facial expression, but that pose is great. It adds a nice swooping balance to the piece.

    sooooo close. awesome work. double check the shape of mass light on the right side of the face...her left...and the shape of the mass shadow and half tone down the side of the nose. there are some unanswered questions there that are keeping this piece from being absolutely fabulous. sooo close to that...keep up the great work B.

    Dang. So close!

    Here's a revision. That's a tricky area.

    much better. your skull is a little wider on the side closest to the viewer...notice the width of the light mass on the forehead. you are so close I might suggest scooting things arounbit using liquify or kind of using layer scraps of the face to move things around a few pixels...if you want to push this one closer.

    You may continue on as the main points of the composition study are covered here, but I encourage you to keep pushing your accuracy as it will reach the point where you see those differences with even more immediacy.

    I'm really starting to like Piazzetta!

    I chose this particular piece because it has a great wizard vibe. The placement of objects in this painting is great because it helps our eye travel. For instance, we can start at the open book, travel up his right arm to his head, back down his left arm and then shoot upward with the cane. The cane tilting is a nice slight composition choice to end it.

    excellent work. it looks like the shadow mass on his head could be just a tiny bit darker so that the shape sits in space as well as the original, but outside that this piece is looking great and showing the progress I want to see. great job.

    Thanks Jason!

    I really like Thomas Moran's environment paintings so naturally I wanted to do another of his. I notice in Moran's paintings that he uses a lot of different rock variations to help his compositions. He almost centers the main focus here. To me, it's the sunset. Then it is countered with the tallest mountain peak very close to it. The more I look at his work, the more I see him using small, dark areas in foliage and rock formations as a good balancing measure.

    By the way Jason, Am I posting these too small to see?

    Glad to see the server back up! I've been itching to post.

    I wanted to do another Piazzetta study because I really feel I'm connecting with his work. In this study, there's a lot going on and I think the motion carried throughout with the knife in the hand, the body bent over and the angel really adds balance and emotion. There's such a good flow to it. For me personally, I started at the dead man's head, then moved down the knife, up the arm and to the angel. The angel brought me back to the dead man. Such a good flow.

    Wow Thanks Jason. This has been a huge learning experience and can't wait to move onto the next stage.

    I chose a Gerome piece for my last study just because of the compositions he comes up with. They are awesome. There's a lot of action in the piece. It's very balanced in the form of chaos happening everywhere. Definitely a lot of movement. There are major and subtle tone shifts happening everywhere. it was a big challenge.
