    Tess M - Composition 1.1

    1.Cleopatra 1h

    I chose this piece for the lightning and figure, I love how Waterhouse drew women. I have to admit I spent alot of time setting the composition with lines, I struggled with the placement of the figure and the objects surrounding it. I spent too much time on the face I must have retouched it 3 times.
    The balance of values works really well with the darker background, white dress and the darker details surrounding it, I tend to worry more about the anatomy and the expression so this was a good exercise to focus on clothing and lightning. I still got long ways to go to get out of my comfort zone

    Took 1 hour, the emphasis is clearly on the helmet, but I cant help to admire the way Rembrandt painted the face without many details, only focusing on shapes

    Wow! Looks great! You capture the values really well.
    To push even better, you could add more details and values especially on the main subjects especially 3rd study.
    You could also do them on a smaller scale. It'll be slightly easier to add details. Works for me

    Cheers.
