Re: .001% Club

A poor example of using the pallet as a giant scale chart. This doesn't relay the message I explained in #3, but it's a start. After I finished painting I took this picture. Then I tried to rearrange the values so they'd be in the proper places but it was much harder than I thought. (No picture ) I'...

Re: .001% Club

#4 Dec. 9 27 cm X 26 cm I knew I'd learn, but I'm learning much faster than I would have expected. Faster than Neo learning Kung-fu. I really don't get it either, because I was painting everyday already. There's something different about the .001% Club. I think it's the structure. It's like a class ...

Re: .001% Club

Here's the crude drawing after a thin wash of red to harmonize with the focal point. I tried to use the 50/50 medium to get the paint more fluid but it didn't work as well as I wanted. Stand oil is too viscous. I ended up just using turpentine. as the medium for the drawing. I did this before SINGUL...

Re: .001% Club

Joe that's excellent idea. As you'll see with my next post I tried an under-painting technique, but the one you described is what I'll try next.

Re: Looking for some background advice on this...

Les, people tend to forget we come from nature. Putting it in a woodland setting would help offset the grey tones the figure has. In a city scape things tend to be more muted. I like it. It reminds me of a tiki head. How about putting it on an island?

Re: Rainbow Crack

Thanks Joe, No worries.

What do you think after my added description. Does that help explain the confusion. Or is it still too busy regardless.

I planned on putting more thought into my self-critique but I'll wait to see if there's any responses first.

Re: .001% Club

#3 26 1/2 cm. X 24 1/2 cm. Dec 8th. I had to take a day break because I have a bad wrist and it was bothering me, so I figured no need to stress it. I'm painting under fluorescence (sigh). I know. I've already talked to my landlord about changing them. Getting back to painting was like a addict gett...

Re: .001% Club

#2 Dec 6th. I thought about the Guidelines to follow, and I've only come up with a few. 1. Paint no more than 2 hours. Stop mid-brushstroke if I have to. This does not include set up or clean up. 2. Paint things that seem difficult. By painting this I'd normally stray away from because of complexity...

Re: .001% Club

I'm not using the Darmar varnish in the medium mixture so I can't give a comparison. I will be trying to articulate the differences between my 50/50 ratio and Liquin though. I have used Darmar varnish in the past as a final stage when the painting is completely dry. I love the effect. None of these ...

Re: .001% Club

I'm writing my next review/explanation for #2 now.
I've included some rough guidelines, including time.
Any tips or thoughts on what guidelines may help me?

Joe- was the ration 3:1 (three to one)? Or did you mix equal parts of each of the three mediums?

Re: City sea.

OK I see it now. Let me relate a problem I'm having and see if you can apply this; My GF came home last night and looked at my most recent painting and said "what is that? It looks like a guy with oven-mitts on using a mop." then she said, "what is it supposed to be?" I told her ...

Re: clown

Wow! Thats the most dynamic yet! The contrast is great!

One question though, what is that "cord" coming from the leg of the clown?

Re: tree

I think don't think the background is the problem. In fact it is lovely. Making the background less busy would certainly help the busyness of the shimmering tree stand out, but there are other ways. In my opinion adding contrast would dramatically help. Even if you don't do it for the whole backgrou...

Re: Untitled Grffiti piece

Les, I underestimated your remarkable versatility. I'm glad to see how flexible you are. It gives more room for growth and you can explain hard to say topics. This piece is multi-dimensional. I get the sense of expansion with a lot of perspective. Where do you think it's lacking, or where would you ...

Re: Stained Glass Japanese Dragon

Nice, Glad to help. Its cool to know that you were on the same page. I quite often find that I have an idea of how to better a piece but it always helps to have someone else say it in different terminology, sometimes things just click easier.

Re: .001% Club

BTW- The reason I call it the .001% Club is because I view personal growth only happens in infinitesimally small increments. To think that doing 100 paintings would make you at 100% is a bit silly and naive. Therefore I think I'll have to do at least 1,000 paintings before I've really mastered anyth...

.001% Club

I've picked a subject to stick to for 100 paintings, as to perrfect technical aspects fo my painting skills. Starting this project I didn't know what I'd like to improve on specifically. The general study stopic is "Realism". I've decided to start to keep a detailed journal to help me soli...
