    Adventures of AR to Traditional (UPDATE Tuscany Storm 3-12-10)

    Hi all! I haven't been on much lately but I still make my rounds looking at everybody's newest work. Fantastic stuff lately!

    I've been submerged in traditional painting (oil). It has been an interesting challenge to adjust my thought process away from digital (a bit painful at times) but I feel like I'm learning a lot of useful knowledge that will help me improve both digitally and traditionally. My work in AR has actually increased because of this except I am using it to work out color, value and composition issues before my paint hits the canvas. It has been a life saver both in time and money for the transition.

    This is a very quick imaginary pear I did tonight using the exact same technique I have been using traditionally. I downloaded the Gouache Extra Fine Quality palette located in a thread done by user Trurl in the Art Supply section of the forum. It is a great traditional palette to work with.

    Thanks for checking it out!

    P.S. Turpentine and the finish on my wood floors do not get along! Digital has more than one benefit, that's for sure!

    Eddie - that's pretty darn good. You somehow seem to have quite captured the natural media look. It's down right cool - wonderfully painterly.

    Your ruminations of your adventures in real paint are fun - they remind me of what now seems quite a while ago, though it wasn't really THAT long ago. Sounds like you are having a lot of fun - except it could be expensive replacing those floors.

    Really a nice and painterly piece of work - you should be quite happy with it. Now I want a pear.

    It certainly ap-pear to be a real pear with a tasty ap-peal so as I would peel it ...
    Very nice indeed and also a useful insight on how You proceed with an AR painting, dear Sketch!

    Thanks Everyone for the comments!

    More fruit. Worked in ArtRage then painted traditional. AR is perfect for this... I feel armed with knowledge approaching the blank canvas. I was focusing on value and color more than anything on this study so don't laugh to hard! Total painting time about 30 mins.

    Wow. I fully agree with Byron. The painting with the pear looks like done with with real oils. Fantastic painting. The canvas grain pushes that look even more.
    I have to take a look at the palette you've mentioned.
    That traditional painting is wonderfully done mate. Great !! 30min? Would have needed more time just to wipe all off the colored dabs from the table.
