It’s finally starting to resemble the spool that I’m trying to emulate. I’ve started to add white for the highlight. Hopefully soon we’ll be able to put two nails in the wall to serve as an easel, because we can’t find one big enough. The canvas will simply hang on the two nails, rather than trying to get proper lighting while it’s laying on the table. 2’ x 3’. Oil on canvas.
More red. I need to make sure the values of the red match the yellow underneath. My art teacher suggested that I use alizeran crimson for the darker tones and I’ll use my cadmium red hue with a touch of white for the lighter highlights. I’ve also noticed that my commentary on the art has gradually become slower. Anywhooooo. I’ll try to give more explanations of what I’m doing. Oil on canvas. 2’ x 3’.
FINALLY. Tumblr was being a kczhnjvdkjnczkjn and wouldn’t upload the picture. As you can see, I’ve started on the cylinder portion of the spool. At the time I took the photo, I was still using my smaller, synthetic hair brush. 2’ x 3’.Oil on canvas.
Right. So. Today we had shortened periods, so I only got about 10 minutes to work on this. I’m having a bit of difficulty getting the right balance of linseed oil and paint. I don’t want it too thin, or it will take forever to dry. I also don’t want to get it too thin, because this is only the base layer. Ah, well. I’ll get it. Oil on canvas. 2’ by 3’
Hey. Same thing as yesterday. I’m getting frustrated because it’s such a large painting, and I don’t have an easel or anywhere to get a good angle for pictures. Therefore, the perspective is somewhat warped because of the angle. Oh well. 2’ x 3’. Oil on canvas.
Right. So. This is a continuation of what I was working on yesterday. I’ve had some questions about the yellowish color, and the answer is that it’s only a base coat to establish values. Also, I’d really like some feedback and critiques on my work. Message me if you have advice, questions, compliments, complaints, etc. Oil on Canvas. 2’x3’
So I realized that I might give y’all some color in this bloggy thing. This is a partial study I did a few weeks ago. The top elipses of the spool is wronky and weird, but the color is nice, in my opinion. 8.5” x 11”. watercolor pencils on paper.
It’s not furry, silly. It’s charcoal rubbed around the back so that I can transfer the image onto my GIANTCANVASOFDOOM. Although it does look slightly furry. Whatever. Charcoal on paper 2’x3’
