View Full Version : Stilllife with roses and satin.

10-19-2006, 10:07 AM
hi there...i was in a strong mood for oil painting (on canvas), when i painted this digital piece, so I handled it in a very similar way as i wouldve done my oils. i even forgot in the middle of the painting process that im sitting infront of my computer, with a pen (wacom tablet), in my hand...:).
I went for suggestions, with casual, spontaneous brushwork, though I kept the setting/environment very traditional/classical. Ive put enough detail that was required to portray the scene that i had in my mind. My goal here, was to capture various kinds of textures and their look/feel (softness, hardness, reflective, shiny, glossy) and I really enjoyed doing every bit of it...:).
No reference used. This is all self-visualized/composed. All painted in artrage – tablet.

Thanks for coming in…cheers all.

Sweet lighting. Amazing that you are able to get that detailed without reference. I guess experience accounts for something. :D

I especially like how the light hits the blanket thingy. Good fabric texture.

When I grow up can I want to be a painter like you !!
Amazing textures and lighting friend. You really show off this program.

Waheed, that's just gorgeous! The contrast in textures is breath-taking. The glazed pottery feels glassy just to look at, while the velvety texture of the fabric looks soft and, well, velvety. And the rose petals are fantastic.

You are such a master of light, shadow, and surfaces! It's quite an honour to us here at Ambient Design that you've chosen to express yourself through ArtRage.

[edit - I meant Satiny, not Velvetty.... ]

speggie...thank u mate...:).

D Akey...thanks...yes i agree on the experience part. i think my real painting experience plays quite a role in my digital work...:). and yes, its all from my mind, completely visualized. no reference. i used to do a lot of life drawings and paintings, with spot lights and a cut cardbox, all arranged. still do whenever i get time. i think that experience helps a lot as well.

Peter Pinckney...thank u very much...:).

ENCHANTER...thank u very much for the appreciation...:). im not sure about exact hours, i worked for less than 2 days on and off. i think it took about to 5 hours in total to complete this. yes, its done without any reference.

philoponia....thanks a lot...:).

Fashmir...thank u so much...:).

Selby....many thanks...:).

hanzz...thank u so much...glad u like it mate. planet? ah let me remember...:).

Aged P...thank u very much phil...:). took about 5 hours in total, worked on and off for a couple of days. i just apply basic colors first, then put further applications of paint to build up forms. no special technique, i just follow my instincts...:).
hairan kon?...sorry i dont get it, what does that mean?

Weeks...thanks alot...sure mate...:).

Waheed: ""My goad here, was to capture various kinds of textures and their look/feel (softness, hardness, reflective, shiny, glossy)""
Well, you accomplished your goal! It's all there...
It's your passion for painting that makes them in a class of their own... Very Richly presented. All of your work is a feast for the eyes.

Kind Regards,

Your abilities are quite obvious! Did you state that you work in both traditional and the digital materials?
I found that using traditional media really helped me to jump into the digital.
Keep up the wonderful work

ingie01...thank u ingie01, for liking this...:). yes, i do paint on canvas as well (real painting, using oils) and work as a digital artist too. and yes, doing real paintings do help with digital work...:).

Wow, Waheed.

I can't help but think of artistic wealth when I see colors and values like that -- a personal quirk I suppose, but I really like this one.

Looking at it summons up passages of Urdu poetry, and the smell of coffee.

10-21-2006, 04:28 AM
d akey...thats some good observation...:). i enjoyed reading it. thanks for admiring this painting (oils) as well...:).
its actually an arabic kettle, with those small cups (arabians traditional stuff) i painted this when i was in UAE...:).
