Still life painted by reference, during 1½ moth, using my own photos. Contours were traced from photos the rest was painted using crayons and various techniques. A gift for my mum.
I decided to see how detailed I was able to paint using a large paper (56cm x 45cm @ 82 dpi). But I was a bit surprised/disappointed about the result. It's "too good". At large scale it looks painted (se detail above), but resized it looks too much like a photo. I must learn a more painterly technique. Anyone?
Happy strokes of
