    Jrr, that second one is fantastic. Makes me wish I could do more oils from life, not just PS's from photos.

    Fred, I'm hoping your server unkinks itself when it ticks over to august. Can't wait to see them.

    i agree...jrr's path to greatness is within those oils and mediums...the best part is that its right in front of him...shall he chose to walk it.

    btw jrr...i told my friend who is a senior student of jacob collinsa bout you...he said for you to go over and see them...he said that its only 270 bucks a month and that its so cheap that if you dont do it that youre just plain silly.

    his name is carl dobsky...you have seen his figures posted.
    he and i shared a great teacher for three years together...the best teacher ive had...he swears that jacob is even more adept at communicating concepts to his students.

    gosh...am i going to have to come to ny, drive you there and rope you to their atelier front door with a note in your pocket asking for admittance.

    Totally sweet. I really like the girl with red hair, and the knight.

    Fred, do you mind talking about your method? Do you start with a drawing, then go dark to light?

    my method eh? Um, ok. I paint like the 19th century painter Sorolla. Not literally, but the methodology is the same, from the school of fine arts in valencia...my mentor, sebastian capella taught me this method...first, vine charcoal on good linen, a belgium linen...good stuff...the drawing is worked out for sake of composition in charcoal, because if the painting is started in paint lines, and the composition stinks, the paint lines taint the pure white surface. Then, the charcoal is sealed with terp and a bit of ultramarine blue. The blue is the darkest value on the color wheel excluding a black, so it acts as a dark sealer. Dust off the charcoal,
    and paint in big masses first. No details anywhere just the big four values. Not colors, but values. Colors, there can be plenty, but values, you need to keep simple. These 4 values are shadow free, what you are looking for in color is the color of the object you are painting, if its a red shirt, you paint the red at its value you see sans light influence...etc

    then, you find the shadows relative to those big values, and you have the picture. Then its a matter of picking a focal point, and building up upon that.


    thats it in brief, I will explain more with a tutorial soon.



    thanks for asking.


    Ron
