Alright, here's my "let's see what I can do without reference"-doodle, after having done those still lives. I did look at some anatomy, though, but everything else is of course completely improvised. Although I feel like I've learned a good deal about contrasts, my lighting still leaves wishes open and I think I'll have to get a real skull for learning... I'm kidding. Nah, I just need to practice more, more, more... but it's fun.

Season's greetings and a toast to Halloween! :twisted:

Were you trying to portrait me? After seeing and try to learn and analyze from your stunning paintings for the past week. I don't need to buy Halloween costume. I look like that. :lol: :lol:

I think Van Taron is playing hookey from the Flemish school of messing with the eye from the 1600s or so.

Found his range.

Bullseye. . . in a dirty glass!

Hehe. Very cool painting. Your surfaces are fantastic.
Twisted is good.

I love this, it's got an almost 'old-master-esque' painterly feel, yet the subject matter is humourous (and a bit twisted, which is a good thing!)

I love the lighting/colours as well. Great stuff :)

LOL Taron!

This is the first time I have ever seen an artist that is able to make a skull/skeleton look sheepish and almost bashful at the same time :lol:

Very well done

Dear Taron,,, wow !!! another excellent painting, when we were kids we used to sing to the tune of 'Jealousey', words like 'there goes my eyeball right into my highball",thats what your painting reminded me of :wink: :oops: ,,sorry folks!

Incredibly twisted stuff - terrific use of the paintbrush and the blending tools. :)

Haha! And it's only taken me about a year to stumble across this Taron. Love the humour. Always pays to keep an eye on the last olive.
