Hey artists, This would be my second thread opening since being on CA.org for probably a long time now (yeah nov, 2011). I tried to properly utilize what the site has to offer before and although it was nice the direction i was headed in just kinda Burned me out. My other thread which was mostly digital work, Work of me attempting something i had no grasp on i feel. The amount of it i was doing and for how long eventually lead me into the middle of no where, With my creative juices gone i did nothing for probably about 8 months.. ALl that time scheming on things to get back into it but never doing it.. Well one of those things involved moving my easel into the house and setting up a Corning which didn't get used for a long time. Happy to say im back on it now after a long time. Glad i set it up months ago. Well the corner has grown but was mostly used for drawing. Scared of my oil paints it wasn't until the wife got me a nice little anniversary gift that i decided to take the oils out and try to relearn them. Relearn cause i was pretty terrible at them when i was attending art classes. I actually skipped 85% of my painting classes when i was attending school. Anyways im painting, i have a better understanding of where i want to go and so im gonna Go there. SO im gonna post some things ive been doing that are mostly gonna showcase just how lost i probably am, But i feel alot more comfortable with what im doing than i did when i was doing digital work. This intro post got alot longer than i thought it would so.
Ive been doing alot of just study paintings of whats available to me. I make an effort to paint everyday but if i cant i draw or sculpt. Sculpting will end since ive finished my little thing i was doing with it but that just means more drawing and painting.
So i have images of mostly me just trying to get used to paint, the set of 4 are on old wood i had from school. The single is on canvas which i found i dislike cause of the texture and i should of taken the time to smooth it out. lesson learned. The Wip is what im doing now and i have a list of things ive written down that i have next to it in terms of things ive spotted that need changing in terms of the drawing/structure of it. To be addressed when i come to it
im open to hearing anything about any of them. Technical stuff for the study paintings mostly and anything for the wip.
the studies were just to learn how to mix the paint again. The subject of them are yes model photos out of the wires swimsuit magazine. It was easily available and i feel worked out decently for just messing around with oils after maybe a 5 year break from them with no knowledge of how to use them really in the first place.
I personally thing i was successful on a minor scale with the set of 4, Missed the mark with the 1 on canvas, and have yet to decide how i feel on the one im working on for obvious reasons.
