    Explorations

    Here's a painting I made starting from a palette I got from three starting colors,plus white and black and very loosely inspired (it's quite different and far from a copy) to a master I appreciate and who was a reference for great American illustrators of the past.
    Oil and knife, one layer. Not really an accurate work on figures and the rest and without any preliminary study.
    It was just a self-training, but I hope it's good enough to see ...

    Caesar, love the colors, so classic... love the figure, coming gently out of the background. It is prima.. as we would say...:-)...like this..a lot.

    Dear Mike, the difficulty mixing the colors in AR (true mode) is that You cannot get the darker or lighter tones by merely thinning or de-thinning the color You pick from the palette. Moreover, by mixing, You don't get a darker tone that that of the darkest component. Thank You!

    Dear Anna, prima is an expression I know from German, thank You! It's curious to notice how different colors look like from one screen to another one of mine ones! It's not that good in my view, but here and there there are some interesting colors tones and contrasts.

    A very fine painting (as usual)
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Unhappy

    I find it lovely Caesar. It reminds me a bit of a style that was common in illustrated stories for young people when I was growing up. You've got a knack for so many different styles. Your expression here is quite effective. You're little "studies" show how much you've continually developed art and skills all applied to an eclectic exploration of your various muses.
