Personal art review;
For starters I made huge proress to where I was when I started last september/october to where I am now. The portraits are better, have more depth and I have an understanding on how to construct a portrait. Putting that into practice seems to be more difficult though and I know that takes time and practice. But I also have the feeling I'm lacking some fundamentals that limit myself to get futher. So I think it is time to take a step back and focus on that.
Those basic things include:
Perspective; I have a basic understanding from my prodcut design background, but I aws never good at that either so I'll need to fix.
Linework; I have ben trying to work on this the last weeks as warming up exercises.
Observation & Accuracy; Being able to observe better what's going on in a picture and being able to copy this.
Watercolour studies: I really enjoy painting and it is getting better. But the paintings I make are too stroky, and well sometimes just not the thing I want. I'll try to do some studies from life but also other subjects like landscapes so I get a better understanding of how the paint works.
More positive; I subscribed to a drawing and painting course at the university which will start upcoming Monday. Quite exited for that!
And I'll keep trying the portraits, as I do need to see if the new method is working ;).
Landscape painting I did over the course of the last week; I messed up a lot (especially the trees and the tent xD) and learned a lot. Pretty happy with how the sky and the snow turned out. Although the last one is not really visible on the picture.
Portrait I have been working on and trying to be more accurate:
And some random perspective boxes:
