    Parn - Composition 1.1

    Hi!! guys

    This is my first post here and this is my first study
    (Time : 1 hour)

    the original artist is Rembrandt. I chose this paint because of the light and contrast in this image. I feel that he used light as a focus of detail.

    2nd study

    2nd study of Sabastiano Ricci : Venus and Cupid (Time : 1.15 hour)

    This draw has a good contrast between skin and other element in the picture. The attention of this paint seem to be on the lady's face but the its lead to the empty space at the right corner. The element in this picture is curve down to the right.Name:  VenusAndCupid.jpg

    3rd study!! This time I chose "Mary Magdalene in The Cave" by Jules Joseph Lefebvre (Time : 1.30)

    This paint has a nice flow with her body and her hair. With her pose and the way the light reflect on her, make this paint looks interesting. With her against a dark background, the main focus is on her upper body then the line flow to the light where it has less contrast which allow our eyes to rest.

    Nice progress so far. When you are first getting started it is very important to really focus in on the mapping out of your shapes as accurately as you can possibly get them. If you put a shape in the wrong place and commit you end up having the other shapes off and require fixing, which increases painting time. By taking just a few extra minutes early on to measure out your shapes, to compare your shapes, and be sure they are placed and drawn accurately will make the rest of the painting process, working out your values and edges, much much easier.

    You should flip the images horizontally and vertically so that you see the shapes with fresh eyes. This should be part of the process and if you are already doing that, keep doing it more. The professional artists will often flip images or use a mirror to see with fresh eyes as many as three or four times a minute as they are working when things really get flowing. You can also back away...actually get up and back away...and doing this works for shapes as well as checking values and edges.

    Keep up the good work.

    Study No.4 Far away Thoughts by John William Godward

    With this study, I decide to spend more time to get the sharp right and focus more on light and shadow.
    This paint emphasis on girl face by using light and shadow element. He put her against a busy background pillow and keep her face clean and simple.

    The grid is a good thing to use when you want to go in and really double check things. over time it is best to get away from that though as there is risk it can be a crutch. if you are just not sure...double check with the grid.

    The most recent is looking awesome. Values could be a little bit closer, like the marks in the background...but overall this one is awesome and right on track.

    keep it up!!

    5Th study of a painting by John White Alexander

    Name:  5_JohnwhiteAlexander_Study.jpg

    the artist put the figure against the dark background to emphasis the figure and the way she pose and how her dress flow lead the eyes to the right side. The contrast between the detail in her dress and the simplicity of background and hand make this painting more interesting.

    At first I thought this is a simple drawing but I found it quite difficult.

    beautiful study. You went a wee bit thick on the neck and large on the head so watch those shape proportions. Values look great. Nice work.

    My sixth study, this piece took me longer than other. I tried to get the shape right but I still have a problem with the face.
    This painting has a nice rhythm by the way the model lie and a rug under her. The model places against a busy looking rug. Even though I feel that this paint value is quite subtle but the composition and the way light and shadow was used made this piece interesting.

    I want to practice drawing portrait, that's why I chose this paint. The main focus is on her face. White skin against black background.

    Very good work.

    You are getting about 90 percent there with the three most important things...shapes, values and edges. are you flipping your images horizontally and vertically every minute or so to check accuracy?

    Make a pass at the end where you double check the following, in this order.

    a. shapes.
    b. values
    c. edges

    At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end in a quality control pass...so to speak.

    Keep up the great work.
