Hello all. My name is Jeremy Deck and I have been self-training for the past year. I started out painting photorealism (or attempted to) in high school. I primarily worked from photos for reference and have been trying to break that habit. I started out with a few Bargue studies and have been trying to translate that knowledge to the cast/still life.
I attended the Academy of Realist Art (formerly MJAS) in Toronto last spring for a short one month stay. I
I hope to return to Canada again in a few months to continue my studies.
Please let me know what you think, I would love to hear opinions from some of the amazing talent I see here on this forum. The Fortuny copy of the boy with a flute, and the still life are unfinished. Each has about 10-20 hours to go, so if anything is obviously wrong, hopefully it is already on my list of things to correct, but please point it out just in case.
I've wanted to join this forum for a while, just never did. I've been lurking though, and I am really impressed with what some of you do.
