Post Re: The Sketchbook Project and Other Visual Arts Stuff

It started as the idea of a cathedral. I have been talking to another friend of mine who paints and I won't lie, what we've been talking about has really pushed me to try new things. In particular, this idea of layers, "showing your work" so to speak on the canvas. I don't know if it really comes across in this one, but it feels organic in my mind, like a good relationship between colours and textures. My next one I am hoping to develop this idea with a bit more complexity. I am worried that it won't come together as a whole, but whatever, it's an experiment of sorts. Kinda this idea that parts of the canvas have veils that have been pulled away to reveal something hidden or forgotten. Something like that.

Layers are my livelihood when I'm painting. I love to uncover a nice little moment or stumble upon a great color combination. So much of my work consists of these semi-controlled accidents.
Happy accidents.
Crap.

I think I'm starting to sound like Bob Ross. :shifty:

Yeah, it was more of a square composition and more sparse last time.

Also, revised version that I tweaked because you know, be done with something? no, only after 5 more versions.

what do you guys think about trying to use oil pastels on canvas, then using acrylic. Do you think it would have a similar effect as using it on paper, where the oil pastel will reject the more water soluble paint? I'm going to try it anyway, just curious.

It's been a while since I've done this - but so long as you don't layer oil on top of the water soluble paint, you shouldn't have issues - that aside, I'm pretty sure they have Oil paints that can be layered either way these days. And it won't have too similar an effect as on paper - as canvas is thicker and tends to let paint sit on top of it better, instead of simply absorbing colors as deeply as paper can.

Post Re: The Sketchbook Project and Other Visual Arts Stuff

this is my new painting in progress, but I am not very satisfied with it. I think there is a fundamental issue with the composition, and the back (white space) takes up too much of the canvas, or is not arranged in the proper spot. There is a lack of definition in the character and he feels too cartoony, but I am somewhat insecure in adding muscle definition and shit, since it's scary since I've never tried that shit in paint. I think there are also too many dark colours and a lack of dynamic motion. Any pieces of advice? I have no real ego, revamping the whole thing does not hurt me in the least. I am looking to learn, to create something I can be proud of. Obviously, the digital image does not due all the colours and depth much justice, but there isn't that much depth (another problem).

Honestly - I didn't notice the character until I re-read your post - I noticed a kind of elongated, sinister face first.

Definition and contrast are what you need to pull out the figure as central to the piece, definition around the figure, and then contrasting color within the figure will pull out the figure without a strong need for muscle definition and add defining features to make it more recognizable.

Those would be my initial observations about it.

the character is losing his arms and his face, so understandable. I don't see the face, but that intrigues me.

I will work on all of that, really sound advice. Defining features is a really great hint, I just need to think things through.

Thank you so much <3

Post Re: The Sketchbook Project and Other Visual Arts Stuff

Yeah, bringing contrast and definition to the character could help, certainly.

...But I might even consider allowing the figure and background to merge even more. If you are worried about muscle definition, perhaps you shouldn't add it at all. Allow the figure to be seen through color separation and directional force (rather than negative space... this really flattens the image). You can allow the edges of the form to be lost and found as long as there is a general understanding that there is a form there to be seen. So, you need to be sure of the form that you are sharing with the viewer... right now (to me)it seems as though you are a bit unsure about who the person is. By that I mean, there seems to be a lack of confidence in the form. I hope that you can make sense out of what I just rambled about. It would make things so much easier if I could just point to areas and just talk about it. Or pull out some other pieces to reference.

I should say that it is a good start, but can see how you might be frustrated with it. I'd encourage you to push on with the piece and work through the negatives, because there is potential here. Sometimes the best pieces give you the most resistance along the way.

I've just needed to paint the last few days, I don't know what I'd do with this - I may just take a towel and some white and scrap it, may build further abstraction, add form, figure but I'm liking the movement so far, and kind of want to finish a new painting in the next month. Been a while since I've completed something.

Thoughts are really appreciated.

Speaking as a total art newb, I'm not usually one for the more abstract arts, but taken on its own terms, I liked the energy of the lines and the visceral nature of the red, and the way the blue in the background contrasted/complimented that.

Progress - I can see so much I want to get to changing already, but the general composition is set to me - more elements of interest maybe, but the ebb and flow of the work are pretty well set in my head now - all I need is the oil paint to dry faster now. Major changes to the left side are first.

(I'll rehost that as not a shitty facebook photo later, my other image host is being fussy now.)

Your paintings give me the impression of, well, you know how when you leave a plastic wrapper on a flat surface for too long and the ink transfers onto the surface? Something like that. It's a very idiosyncratic technique, whatever it is.
