Hi Bumble

So you too desided to go the gallery way. Good idea. I have been thinking the same - one thread for practice/sketches and one for the more fortunate outcomes...

And may I complement you for the first choice of artwork to open up the gallery. I know you have been struggeling with this one and I think you did pick the right one. And a lovely finish it is.

Happy DoodLS

Beautiful and soothing. Looking at this one for awhile could probably lower ones blood pressure.

Taron
10-08-2007, 05:19 AM
SEE, well, you're a real master in these kind of studies! Beautiful work!

I'm having to watch out that I don't get sucked into my studies too much, because it's about learning so that it can be used in free visualizations...materializing ideas from within. I wonder how much all this helps?! I can notice some minor revelations in terms of technique and only one major revelation that tells me: I could've never just made that up!

How's it for you?

Anyway, beautiful flower! :D

Look at how good you are! Dang. . . that is gorgeous. When I look at it it feels like I'm petting it. The fur is remarkable.

Blimey. That magnolia is stunning. So is the leopard.
I'm ... err... stunned!

Taron
10-08-2007, 10:18 AM
UH I love the cuttly fluffiness of that leopard! Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! :D

Great work again!

Yup, that's probably right, hoping to learn from doing it over and over. Then again, I'm trying to be very direct and focus on specific issues for each study. Once I found my "nemesis" I may do that then over and over. I think it's actually not so easy to nail down that nemesis. Where's the biggest trouble, what is it that has to be understood. I now have touched upon color hue and color contrast. I'm just kinda happy that I don't even think of shapes that much anymore, but with the mask I've noticed a curious thing in regards to structural proportions like details in relationship to the whole.
I think it would be so much fun to do such studies together, side by side, diving into them and exchanging as we go. Well, that's a nice dream to have. A little group and real practicing together. But at least in some way we're doing that here, too.
Thanks for the reply, by the way! :)

This painting is a simple one because I had an accident and badly bruised my hand(long story.... :lol: )
I've called storms in africa because I'm listening to alot of Enya at the moment and that's the song I was listening to when I started so it just grew from there...... :lol:

D Akey

Use the other hand and you will be drawing with the other side of your brain. Could freak you out!

If it were a hill profile with several marine pine trees (as the one appears to be) and, may be some ancient ruin or a couple of columns left, You would have got a sunset in Roma (to distinguish from Rome in US)!
Exceptional 8)

Hello BUMBLE....What a nice picture.,A very good sky colour,looks a bit like an african scene with the tree like that....in the sarangetti....or something like that,it has a very spacious feeling..and its very peaceful..if you stay and watch, a couple of Wilderbeast will come wandering into the frame.....Jack.

D Akey
11-07-2007, 07:34 AM
Might want to think in terms of areas of the mane being so closely patterned that it's not so separate uniform and bristly like broom straw. . . unless that's something you were after.

That would be getting into stylization, which is cool, but deviates from your usual naturalistic, polished look. And it draws a lot of attention to itself.

But lions are wonderful creatures to look at, and paint.

The rest is quite nice.

Lovely painting Bumble, you just seem to 'know ' how to do it :!: whatever you do...

The sky is gorgeous, and as to the waterfall... sigh!
BTW I thought I saw a photo of a waterfall which may (or may not) have been your reference photo for this, when I was scouting for reference photos on the Internet myself the other day.

I would like to congratulate you, (if this was the case) I thought you did that photo great justice by you painting which actually added some poetry to the scene. Proving that photographs and paintings do indeed do very different jobs.

I just went though all the post and all I can say is Wow!

You have a special talent for focusing in on edges (fine grass detail under the tree, the buildings against the sky, the ends of the flower pedals the wonderful water fall.

There is a lot to be learned from studying your technique.

Rowena

Thanks Rowena...yes this is in artrage, it just white paint on a black background. I painted the basic shapes then I used the eraser for the details:D

Really and truly? Are we talking about the same image? I'm talking about your Black and White head shot.

It's amazing how much that looks like a filter effect and how perfectly you got the spacing and pattern on your erasings.

Fastidious. Phew.

I'm going to hire a detective and have him shadow you.
