    gilead: sorry, it was because it was finished using photo ref and not from life.....started from life, finished from photo.....
    didn`t think it was allowed in this forum.....
    i wanted to play tricks with the background a bit, perhaps it didn`t work i don`t know....have a shadow and leave the bg as if it was flat....

    I.was.ink; I love the painting of the man with the fez.
    AbcArt; great paintings!

    Here is another 3 hour oil study. I think this one is an improvement over the last study I posted in this thread.

    I don't think the rules are THAT rigid here so long as you tell people what's what.
    I like the use of the blue in the background.
    Part of the reason the tabletop looks more like a wall is brushstrokes. As a rule your brushstrokes should follow the direction of the surface being depicted. So the sides of the bottle would be mostly vertical strokes While the top would be horizontal strokes. The table would be horizontal strokes. Even though the blue reflection goes of at an angle, the brushstrokes that form it should be horizontal. Otherwise they create the illusion of a sloping surface.
    Sometimes you see a nice painting of a landscape with a road slanting off into the distance. The brushstrokes on the road all go diagonally along the road which makes it look like it's going up hill when it's not. The brushstrokes should have been side to side giving the impression of a flat surface.
    This doesn't mean your brushwork has to go in all straight boring lines it can still be broken and interesting, but they generally have to follow the form of the object.
    This concludes the unsolicited lecture that I'm hardly quailified to give.

    Thanks for all the kind words. The paintings are oil on canvas done from life. The 2 figure painting were completed in 3 hours. The painting of the girl in the hat was completed over 2, 3 hour session. Here is a quick painting that I did last Sunday. I was in my back yard and the neighbor’s tree was just screaming to be painted so my wife took our son out for ice-cream and I did this.

    swarm - i love that technique, i want to see more of your work
    flex matthews - nice study.. it looks a little long in the back of the skull like he would have a bullet head or something
    tagheuer: the colors arent too bad but the face is really cartoony.. is that what you were going for?
    abc art- i especially like that fence shadow.. the fence in general works great..
    mermuse - there's drawing problems, but if the model was moving a lot i understand..

    here's a few of the better paintings i've done lately..

    waronmars: It's nice, good darker values, but yeah the light values need to be bumped way up. Try some warmer colors for the light sides like orange mixed with your red on the tomato, a little orange with ...I dunno iron oxide yellow on the onion, and some yellow mixed with your green on the squash. Just on the plane facing the light. Then some glints of white highlight on top of that it'd really pop.

    AbcArt: I love your stuff. I always know it's going to be good when I see your name on the post.

    Main Loop: Same as above. your colors and light are just delicious. The girl in the red shirt looks like she has a really looong forearm, but the reflected light is gorgeous.

    waronmars- its not that it needs more white, its that it needs more separation between light and shadow.. in other words, lighten up the light side of your painting.. and yes it does look like a cock&balls

    mermuse, gorgeous painting, good to see you dont lose any of yoru technique when you change your media.. i think the hand holding the cup is too large for the rest of the body

    haha, kazz, i told you i'd give you a reply..

    the woman is nice, but yeah the proportions are way off, the hips should be as broad as the shoulders.. she feels a bit too purple and pink.. could use more greens and yellow ochres in the light areas... there's not enough of the green cloth affecting her skin color and the reflected lights as it should in real life.. i like that you included the pattern in as well..

    the guy with the bird is cool too.. i like the yellow outline for some reason.. you kept the pallette simple and direct.. the blue in back was a nice choice also.. the legs feel kinda stiff, you should show more of how the body underneath affects the overall shape of the pants..

    Thank you loops. I agree with the crits.

    I was pretty pissed at the proportions. I'm too used to the luxury of digital painting where proportions can be adjusted even after a good amount of rendering.

    bird man: I wanted to capture his hands better.. i think i'll get a small round brush for detailing. I know what you mean about the stiff leg but I don't know how I could fix it. Better observation is probably the only way.. or do you have any specific ideas? More hard vs. soft spots maybe?

    Nice work by the way, I totally missed it when I made my last post.
    #1 got some good value range.
    #2 check where the green cup lies in space (you probably know this)
    #3 The figure isn't the center of attention cause shapes around her have greater contrast. I like the slow fall off of that shadow though, really nice.
    #4 Vivid colors! The optical mixing thing is working well.
    #5 I love the silky quality on his shirt, and good rendering with the face. The color comp isn't the most attractive one but I'm guessing it was strictly observational.

    I forgot to post this one.. local colors gone wild!

    kazz: the legs feel like tubes rather than draped figures.. if you showed how the fold of the pants wrap around the back of the knee and how the knee affects the shape of the pants, you'd be alot better off.. the female is nice, just watch out for the shadow under her eye, it feels too dark and dead there.. its liek she has a black eye.. the color temperatures in the face are off as well

    nice paintings, shaoshao.. i like the paint quality.. you can probably get by with less white in the light side of the faces.. the less you can rely on white the better.. the eyes on the 2nd one feel off.. they should be on the same horizontal level.. her shoulders look way too small in proportion to the head..

    Great thread! I really enjoyed looking through everyone's work. Just joined up, but have really been getting into painting for life drawing lately...

    the life painting Thread.

    the life painting Thread.

    the life painting Thread.

    Though perhaps mine are a little more... non traditional than most of the other stuff here.

    Also, I really like your stuff shaoshao- there's some wonderful ideas and emotions in there!

    Anyway, keep posting guys!

    two quick digital paintings from life...

    the life painting Thread. the life painting Thread.

    The first is complimentary and the second is analogous. I think my ultramarine has too much red in...
    I mixed up digital versions of my favorite tube colors but some of them seem to be a little off.

    eliza - the one with the big earring is great... simple, elegant and has a great flow.

    eliza- i really like your style, you seem to have a good grasp on composition.. your style really relies on the strength of your line, and drawing especially.. you dont seem to really be into it for the value and 3d structure.. make sure your strokes are crisp as possible
    mermuse - id be careful of the big long stroke that goes down her forearm..im a big believer in less strokes is more, but i think its trying to say too much.. break up the area a little bit more to show the anatomy of the wrist and forearm.. its a little too oversimplified..

    i finally got around to scanning a lot of my oil quick studies.. all from life, times range from 25 mins to 3 hrs.. most fall into 25 or 40 mins..
