Timpas paintings Ud 28 Nov
So, first post, just to get my ass in gear. These were done at the end of a foundation year in at LESAG in Paris, before this Id never picked up a pencil with the intent of drawing something, so I guess I learnt something over there. Not counting my first broken heart of course...
But I digress, these are all 1:1 gouache still lifes, on 400g vinci board, except the leather glove, thats a pencil.
And soon, a sketchbook will appear.

great studies you have a very good eye....the glove is kinda hard to read..maybe the picture..love to see your sketches.

You know I just posted on your sketch book and now looking at your gouache didn't realize that it's the same artist. Not exactly unrecognizable but very different from your city sketches. But I love it again. I love festive colors, and
how you draw texture.

Yea from life, basically lay out whater infront of me, make sure I have a reliable lightsource, (very important!) then doing contours in pencil, lightly, then colour, trying to get shadings as close as possible. I really enjoyed them, love sitting for hours like that, learning. Ill scan some more.

How did you do the plastic container on N4? With what? The reflection is made shockingly realistic. You didn't ask me but I just have a little request. Try not to overdo it, don't do it a photographic quality. Stop when it still have charm of a drawing or a painting. Some roughness, not a polished effect. In this case you didn't overdo, in my opinion, but you are close.
Yes, some old dirty shoes would be nice after a french pastry.

Thanks, well basically drew the strawberries full figure, as if there was no container, then sprayed with a celluosa fixative, and lightly went over with a very diluted grey mix.
As for the "photorealism" I dont think Im there quite yet, hehe, but they were done for Analytical Drawing class, so the more close it looked to reality, the higher marks we got.

Hey, Tim! I'm very fond of your shoe and brunches. The shoe is new, never been worn. For not a shy person to wear it. I have a lot of associations with these branches: I've seen branches like that under my feet in very early cold spring when I was walking in city's park. Dead branches from last year growth.
I like the figure drawings (can add they looked stylized). Colored ones are a little scary. What did you do with their eyes?
