Oil on canvas, 16x20 Alla Prima
this is fantastic! I'd love to get the same fleshy/statue like quality you have
Idk if I ever told you how much I really love this piece. I think this is the reason I started talking you. I love this too much.
Thanks so much This is that piece that allowed me to let go of some really heavy stuff, and one of the greatest experiences in the act of painting (or creating art in general) in my life. And woot to the creation of friendship through the act of creation. *trans-continental high-five*
lol I am very much impressed with it, and I was thinking that I may buy a big print of it someday. I think it's sexy and melancholy and heartbreaking while hopeful
Those descriptions are some of the basic elements that formed the foundation for this painting...except for sexy, that just happens.
very Ernest Hemingway for some reason
Gorgeous work with the oils! The shadow and light is striking without being too sharp. Beautiful.
i like the colouring and you're really good with anatomy! i like the shading on his face, the light source is really well done! ^^
Great work with shading!
