    Azzedidine SALHI - Composition 1.1

    Hi everybody,

    LET's GOOOOOOOO

    on each i spend more than 1 hour, lot of watching and day dreaming about how-to's and may-be-i-should's and i finally just did.

    I choose this one because of the quietness i feel, a silence very loud i would say. Something very peculiar due to the beauty of the subject and the richness of details and magnificent beauty.

    This one is because DANG it's powerful, the rhythm of the strokes and the statically posture of the man the whole thing move. The effect on the hands a couldn't reproduce are like melted but the contractions of the arms makes me feel the tensions anyway. it's something i digg. the force in the composition i think is the reverse treatment of nature and the figure painted. the landscape is soft and not so much represented when the man is in foreground and his skin is like a three. the geometry construction is obvious and i love how everything is crackling inside it.

    I really enjoyed the exercice now i just have to do 18 MORE !
    Good luck to everyone playing the game !

    You are doing a good job with your shapes to get started but we need to keep paying very close attention to your values. for example, there is a little more light on her blouse and the flower...or that there is darker values on the male figure in the most recent image. get those values handled as closely as you can. flip the image horizontally and vertically to see the pieces with a fresh eye...and do that a lot.

    keep up the good work.

    Thank you for you answer Jason, everyone here is making so much effort it's very inspiring

    This time i really focused on values, i flipped and blipped and the more i narrowed down the values the more the shapes appeared. it's a very slow process but it's really making me see and feel the painting more closely than ever. instead of construction around shapes i made fogs of values then blocks etc etc, i'll try to invest more time tomorrow. i did more or less 1h30 for each.

    Really nice studies! You're right about the last study being a Sargent, I can't remember the name of the woman though. I think you could push both your darks a bit further in the Sargent piece, but you've got a great start.

    these are absolutely beautiful starts. keep pushing your edges and values as both are most the way there...but not quite far enough. Your initial start though...excellent excellent work.

    wow that amerling piece melts my soul...beautiful.

    you see shapes very very very well. we need to get your values and edges to that same level of awesome. you tend to work a bit softer and less contrasting than the originals. bite down and double and triple check everything. you can do this. notice the darks around the amerling piece in the head and down the figure, or the light sharp shapes on the shoulder or the contrast on the wrist and book binding. keep it up!!

    very good start on these. You are headed in the right direction.

    When you get your shapes worked out well, pay very close attention to the values. You want to match the values you see as closely as you can...and even more closely than you are. It is important to be very honest about what you are seeing. try to put the accurate value down with each stroke as otherwise you end up having to fix things along the way and being accurate will save you time. Really take the time to observe and compare and choose the right value. If you are off, adjust it, don't keep working and come back to it. You are doing great...just need to focus in on value a little more.

    Keep it up.
