Photographs tend to be contrasty and don’t catch the subtle value shifts that our eyes can see. Still this is Ok! Thank you for viewing. Enjoy!
Another beautiful face… and another charcoal sketch.
I belong to a photography group on Facebook. A member in that group, living in India, posted this beautiful picture on the site. I was in total awe of the photo and asked his permission to paint it, (for personal use). There is beauty in simplicity, sometimes. Enjoy!
Texas landscape is sprinkled with bails of hay all across its landscape. They look so lovely and poetic under different light condition. I feel an artist can spend a life time, just painting bail of hay all across Texas.
Practicing,.. Limited Value. Using Temperature change as much as possible, instead of value change, for interest.
Practicing limited value (shadows and light) and Painterly style.This is a farm in Allen, Texas. The cute little calf was staring at me.
A lovely tea cup, that was a birthday party favor. It was begging to be painted and therefore here it is. (Keeping the Shadow Values and Light Values in check).
UPDATE:- DO NOT PAINT LIKE THIS…
I recently saw a video of the beautiful Kashmir in Pakistan. I stopped the video and captured several images to paint. Since I don’t intend to sell and is for practice only, copyright issue should not apply.
I am working towards limiting my Values and using temperature shifts. This painting is towards that endeavour.
