    Indeed one of the best threads, great work everyone. I just have two questions about one of Fred's posts ( Thank you fred for all the info and the posted works, you are gifted ), If anyone could answer I'd be very greatful .

    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
    Probably my English skills are to blame, but what do you mean four values ?. I fear the meaning eludes me.

    And the second:

    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.
    Well, the focal point is also dictated by the lines, the composition from the "drawing" right ? We can't just pick what strikes us fancy...

    .. Im just trying to understand and learn ..


    Also Fred you mentioned a tutorial. Did you have the time to put it togeter ? May we find it somewhere ?

    Thank you.

    Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .

    A step by step from last night

    This was a 3 hour painting from life done last night with a digital picture taken every 20min. Sorry about some of them being blurry but I just got a new digital camera yesterday and I am not totally used to it yet.

    This will sound lame but id just like to say thank-you:chug:

    Especially to fredflickstone for his brilliant tutorials which make so much sense seeing the processes and the idea of 'basic' shapes which my teacher has been trying to get across for a couple of months
    @AbcArt, first of brilliant work. Secondly i enjoyed looking at the process and am especially impressed with the way you managed to get the instrument(sorry forgot the name ) into the pic. Was this an advantage or a disadvantage? I see them as objects bolcking my view but have just clicked you probably used it for placement. Is this right.
    P.S. Im 18 and only been doin life-drawing for a couple of months so sorry for noob questions

    Well done everyone!

    wow, these are all great guys. I went to college hoping to learn how to paint like that but all they taught there was conceptualist art/ abstract art etc.
    Still wonder if I could sue them.:mad:

    All the great stuff in this thread just made me think I must join this thread some of the skill might rub off on me

    I did this some time ago but it´s still one of my favorite
    please comment if you like
    the life painting Thread.
    first I did contours with pencil, then I used thick layers of blue and white and mixed them directly on the paper.

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Each is 12x16 and about 2-3 hours each all from life. The pictures suck, sorry I'll try to retake them when the sun is out. I just started my first ever painting class and its a blast. There is so much great work in this thread.

    This is Photoshop?

    There's something new I don' know about photoshop.... how do you get the canvas texture? Can you draw on TOP of a new texture, like Painter? How?

    That is just a gorgeous painting!

    And these are all from Life?

    Wow.

    The middle one is particularly engaging. The pose, the composition, the handling, the abstract, the color.

    Gorgeous.

    Was that from Life?

    I want to see more!

    Yes they are from life, but the last one, I just make the head and lines from life, and finish it from head.

    Awesome work in here!!! it is so amazing that there are so many talented people in this community

    I thought i would contribute as well, i am not near as good as many of people in this thread :o this is a hw assignment from first painting class ever. i have never even picked up a tube of paint before this class so it is really a new experience i really like painting, right now all i am allowed to use is a palette knife so that is what this is done with... ijust filled the canvas now. later i have to go back and find more values and intensities... i will post it when i am finished

    Seeing as how this is a Life Painting Thread, let's all make sure we're putting up paintings done from Life, not from photos. Some of the images posted here are "suspect"
