    juggler's break

    Ok, here's my second still life. This one has been a long, long, LOOOONG journey into details, which took me nearly the whole day. I think it may have been 8 hours, but that's at least how it feels.

    Similar like the onions, this is under my desklight a shirt of mine, an original venician mask, my silly juggling balls and 16 tons of patience. Again, this is no photo reference but purely freehanding-pi times thumb- painting.

    I've made a little pencil sketch first, trying to get the proportions of the mask right with some of the major ornaments. Then I spent some time with calibrating my brains to the light by painting the wall and trying to hit the colors as close as possible.

    Then I took a long break...watched a movie... some coffee, some cigarettes and on to laying down the shapes with oil and playing with contrast and so forth. Oh yes, and fighting artrage's lovely color blending (ARGH). Although most of the painting is straight oil I have used some pencil and some crayon to beat the system, hehehe. But only at the end, actually and only for the cloth.

    OH, you wonna see it, too...hmmm... ok. If anyone pulls my sleeve enough I'll put together a WIP with a buch of the states. I wanted to save them out to look at my own procedure later.

    One more thing, it's the first time I painted at such large resolution (2300 x 1600). So I'm gonna make a crop for a bit of a closeup, although this is still not original resolution, but it kinda gives a better look at it.

    I'm flabbergasted!!! I can hardlly believe what I'm seeing here. Did you have a head trauma recently that somehow kicked your brain into full-blown artistic genius mode? If not, why have you been holding out on us? This is just incredibly good.
