Oil Painting Sketch

In the Beginning

DSC06731

The Idea starting  to form.

 

DSC06735

Bones and cartilage pulled out of the background. Harsh and gross but this is how this nude was done. The Idea is to be  able to move those bones and muscles to satisfaction.

 

The Final Result

DSC06747

Emphasis where bones as well as how the body bends, and muscles used.

Work in Progress Still Life

DSC06727

Let’s focus first on the Art.  Today, using the natural light from the sun that shined beautifully, from back, placing the subjects in an (birds) or Owl’s view, taking  note: the eye flow in the composition making an tight Z as well as complimentary colors.  The Still Life is then position in a some what or what would call a semi-casual to chaotic composition.

The main subject the tea kettle painted last, emphasis was on a quick effective way (simplify)  create the roundness and softness effortlessly with the brush as well as portraying that light. 

in between time of rest and (squinting)…and the children, Work in progress…

Birds Demo Painting

 

 

For this painting will be using Yellow Oqure.  Just a preliminary sketch a guide trough using  to be specific in order to really understand this method needs to be viewed life. (one day)  I am posting the preliminary sketch Video in youtube.

The two birds are sketch since is only two subjects this become somewhat difficult so the triangular shapes of the trees will help soothe the view from side to side. All the spaces are painted in a different tone of blue like a puzzle.

 

DSC06514

The warm area are kept under cooler tone it is my painting so it is ok to  brake and saw. 

DSC06515

I  omit for now or paint over some some barks as in the photo also smooth out the brush strokes.

Apply some of the sky mixture to the top bird. and some more yellow mixture to the bird bellow. I have an somewhat picture of what is going to look like in my mind.

Then tone down the entire painting with a pale mixture.

 

DSC06517

Decided to do some leaves thought it was a  nice contrast and keeps things entertained as well as makes a count of 5.  When it comes to subjects since they both are going to compete with each other, one must have less than the other as well as size.

 

DSC06523

At this point I began to pull out the feathers with a bristle brush and precision.

both birds are done in a similar way making sure details are also there.

DSC06528

The Birds as in now, tomorrow the leaves will have their say in all this. But nevertheless thank you so much for keeping up with  the Artwork. The Birds might change color, you never know~ bur for now they are happy.
