    ::Bojee:: I reworked it a bit...

    ::tensai:: Being new to this I didnt actually knew HOW to make a soft edge...I think I discovered a way today.

    ::Bone doctor:: Thanks for passing by. I tried to vary edges in this update...still discovering how to hadle those. Soft edges and transitions do not handle the samw in watercolor and in oil its a bit adjustement...

    ::Call0ps::Eh thank you!

    Another session...I can easily see how you can become obsessive with oils, its sooo easy to rework. With watercolor, you see your mistake forever. and if you rework its getting muddy really fast.

    after another 3 hours.

    Solon- the hand looks better, I see a bright future for you with oils. Don't forget to give us our fix of watercolors too.

    I'm liking the oil, unfortunately I don't have acess to the medium so I can only look on in envy...

    =/

    Anyways, the only thing I don't like about most of your watercolours are the spreadiness/poolishness, well, Um...I don't know what word to use for it, but I really love the more precise ones. I'm a hard realist, lol, it's just in my nature. They full of artistic expression, though!

    ::Call0ps:: Thank you!

    ::Bojee::Thank you. Dont worry I am going to go sketch watercolor outdoor soon!

    ::drd:: Thank you for passing by! watercolor is such a wierd medium, when going precise and detail it lose its beauty really fast. Or you have to glaze masterfully for months with really diluted pigments to get results like Steve Hanks wich is probably the best realist right now, other are just photorealists that copy without any interpretation...awww I should stop now...Dont start me on watercolor!

    I know, that man is crazy....His work looks nothing like watercolours sometimes, lol. And I'm up for a chat on anything, ramble away, heh.

    Nice start there, I like the base colours you've set up. Once again I wish I had oils =/

    Are you working from reference or just imagination?

    I don't know, there's something not right about the position of the nose to the eyes. I'm not a master at proportions of the body so I can't tell what the problem is, though. Hm...

    ::drd:: eh, The ref is my beloved wife who agree to pose for me a lot. Ass for the nose/eye relationship I agree, this is not the only anatomical problem!!! This can be fixed, right now, I am trying to make an exiting picture. I miss a dark accent and a cold accent, possibly something blue/greenish and find the ultimate spot for them... find a good balance to make a picture that I find a bit boring right now.

    Solon- Thanks bro, I like the first start on the portrait, nice color in that one. The new watercolors are cool too, are they done on location?

    It's amazing, when you think about it, how little is needed to represent the human form.

    Good job. It's hard for me to do things like that because I'm such a realist, lol. Plus I'm only 15

    ::Bojee:: Thank you. No, its still freezing here, can you believe it snowed yesterday...in april...damn.

    ::drd:: You are right, thats why I appreciate so much figure painters like Sargent or Manet in some of his toreador vies could represent tons of people with blobs of paint...I love that.

    A watercolor sketch then a oil beginning for the same subject, my beloved wife.. while I screwed up some shapes in the watercolor, the value and color scheme where alright to go on. No this is where im frighten to go on...I like it this way and I always kill fressness when I go on...anyway. The oil looks really like my wife. I tried somethin new (its easy as its my 3rd oil) starting with darkest darks wich is everybody doing but I am so used to start with lights to build up that its some sort of shock.

    damn missed so many updates, but thanks to you I painted a lot more too.

    Portraits are beautiful. loving the stuff in oils.
    the lstest update ios full of liveliness , something missing in many portraits nowadays. Great work, sir.
    Oh yeah just to let you know I got myself some good watercolor paper , both handmade and artificial , and I am loving it. Hmm I have a question.

    How should I approach in en plein air art with watercolor,? my recent experiments have been disasters .

    All three look good, the first one is the strongest by far, it's really nice. Maybe try to loose edges like you do in that one for the oil, some soft some hard. Here coat's looking a little funny in the last one right now, it works in the watercolor but it might need more or less detail in the oil to work. You're soaking this stuff up like a sponge.

    Edit: Whoa, gotta stop posting when I just get up, totally missed that hand....

    with whiteout I meant small dots of white guache or acrylics on top of watercolour for highlights
    nice updates, very loose and confident watercolours.

    Thank you all for passing by! its really appreciated!

    ::Bhanu:: I dont have a lot of experience on going to paint outdoor. This is my plan for the coming summer. I have 2 solutionsand will see what &#171;i will use: go with my french easel or just a portable chair and masonite board to tape my quarter sheets on. A lot of aquarelists are using a camera tripod with a board screwedon it...I may try that. Sargent used somehing like that. He used something like 3 umbrellas, a chair, a little table, lunch a lot of stuff but he had an servant to carry them

    ::dakoscwash:: Eh thank you. I dont remember exactly but knowing me I probably used ultramarine, burnt sienna, cad red, and mixed cobalt blue with a lot of differents yellows (cad lemon, cad yellow pale, yellow ochre) to get variety in the greens. I dont know if I used neutral tint at this time but its possible.

    minute doodles, not a lot of time these days...

    Nice work! I admire your dedication. nice work with the oils, your very lucky to have such a willing model on your hands. I was having some trouble loading the pages from your SB but I liked what I saw...the wet in wet toilet study was very nice. See you around

    Lovin the pencil doodles man, would really like to see a 2 or more hr study in pencil. Watercolors are awesome as usual. And the oils are getting better and better.
