Graft- composition 1.1
Welcome all forum users! I'm new here on this forum and I decided to improve my skills in art.
At the beginning, I would like to apologize for my English(I'm from Poland)
ok this are some studies I done already. I spent about an hour on each(Only on the last, about 2,5h)
For now that's it. I know I have problems with shapes and edges. If you have any tips I would be grateful.

Do start with a sketch is allowed? or better to map out larger shapes with value ? I,m confused ; /

These are getting progressively better with each one. I really like seeing that happen. 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 beginning, middle and end of your painting process where you double check the following, in this order.
At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end of each phase, start, middle and end, in a quality control pass...so to speak.
Keep up the great work.

Thanks Jason for tips So here I tried to be more accurate with shapes. It is not perfect but I try to give my best

awesome work. watch the perspective on the cylindrical marks that go up from the lower left...just a small comment there. The rest is on point for where this needs to be. Great job.

Thanks Jason, it gives me motivation to work even harder
In this I tried to focus more on the edges and values (vases are a little too small and I ruined the lines on the floor)

Rock on. Your progress has been awesome. A little more noise/grit to the brushes you are using and it would be even closer on this most recent one. Overall these are great and at this point just more more more more.

Thanks Jason So this next was very frustrating for me I am not happy with the final result
I tried to add some canvas texture for more noise and natural look. Next time I have to choose something with less detail

That is a beautiful study. You went with a little more contrast on the female figure..see lower legs...but for these studies this is pretty on point. Just keep pushing for more accuracy and you will be good to go. This is looking great.

I feel like I'm stuck in place :/
This painting is great, and I ruined it XD

Great work!!! Keep pushing on your sharp edges so that you get the full range of soft to sharp. That is the main thing sticking out to me in that you can be a little bit soft in some areas. Look for that. You will see it. Far too talented to leave your edges...so keep pushing!!!
