    Relax - A prisoner and a conquistador study

    Just to discharge a little bit within my range of practise.
    Imaginary. Background + figure layers (2). Oil and knife.

    This work is promising...
    I can not imagine how it will look once completed!

    Caesar - nice studies. I like the metallic gleam of the conquistador's armour. These are dramatic elements with great backlight... should be a stunner when you blend them together..

    Dear friends, actually they were not conceived as composition or finished paintings, so, even not excluding it, they were not deemed at being completed. For relaxing from my controlled process on "japanese" WIPs and make a self-examination, I tried to quickly test some imaginary colored body and chiaroscuro effects with oils used in a quite classical way (one layer only though). I didn't start with any texture, as often the most appropriate and useful way, as learned by our wonderWeeks.
    Moreover, the vague reminders my mind tried to recall, may be found, to a too little extent alas, in either Michelangelo Buonarroti (prisoners unfinished statues) and Michelangelo Merisi (Caravaggio), two absolute masters You most likely know.

    Thank you, dear Katie! Pls be assured there's non sado-maso content in the first (look above for inspiration).

    LOL, dear ATPlus the Old, I just cannot keep my models standing still as with Your ancient British Gentlemen and Ladies. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Damaso! Neither do I ...

    Dear Anna, You're almost right, but I think I still have a long way to imagine a fairly good looking drapery I'm afraid ... Thank You!

    Dear Barnburner, I just got a little more confident that I can still improve and on what I can progressively get referenceless and without complex procedures or shortcuts. There's none here. Thak You!

    Merci beaucoup, cher Weeks! Actually I didn't use Your amazing teachings here, so I guess I've the possibility to improve sensibly my imaginary outcomes with them and get fairly better results in the future.

    Dear Evart, I thank You very much! Anyway should I go wherever all my sudden sketches would take me, I would be soon torn apart ...

    Thank You, Gxhpainter! That kind of armour appeared in some ancient classical Italian paintings and their effects stunned me since I was pretty young. I remind in particular of a Caravaggio impressive painting (XVI century) where Jesus is taken by a soldiers with a similar attire as soon as he's kissed by Judas.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!
