    Volume

    My big Le Creuset painted with ArtRage Oil brush. I am concentrating on painting volume this time.

    Very hand done but skillful method that features clearly the human voice. I will be curious to see where you take this and how the style would translate to other kinds of objects.

    Clogs - graphite

    I am doing some self studies. The subject right now is volume. This drawing of my clogs was done on paper using a 2B pencil. 15 x 15 cm size. I use the word "volume" to describe the thing I am doing, "mass" could be another word for it. Here is a good link. While Stan Prokopenko uses the word "form" for the same thing (I think it is wrong using form the same way as volume) he is still good at explaining the thing in a simple and understandable way. Here is the video I had today from his YouTube channel. Have a look, it is worth it.

    It does have presence. Very nicely done.

    The goal you had set that it has volume to me means real mass. A sense of presence, of weight. You could touch the object and it would feel right. Hope that helps. I guess it is what it means to me.

    Clogs drawing is marvellous and You certainly succeeded to give volume to your pot. Now just add some water (it would be interesting to add its reflecting surface) and let it boil. I've got a some linguine and fine pesto sauce for tasting one of the Genoan specialties.

    Some editing in ArtRage

    I made some corrections and editing in ArtRage to get the drawing of my clogs to look right.

    Marilyn Anne: I see what you mean. The "nuances" in the English language is not my strength. Thank you!
    Caesar: Oh! Pesto Genovese + Cheese + Olives + Pasta is a favourite dish of mine. Sometimes I make my own Pesto from spinach, basil, walnuts, pineseed, garlic, cheese and olive oil. I will do that today. I prefere black Kalamata and green Halkidiki olives. I prepare them in salt, garlic and origanum some hours before eating. With some nice red wine it will be a perfect meal for the family tonite when they come home. Thanks for the tip!

    This is a solid volume made of clay. ArtRage Oil Brush. A shadow study. All shadow elements like in this Stan Prokopenkos video.
