Glass by Azot2019 Glass by Azot2019
I know, you don`t like such art from me, but I must study various materials... So-o glass for your attention, (and I didn't want to waste my time on detailing grapes...)

This is an interesting study that catches the eye. Colors are well chosen and have a very automnal feeling (oranges, dark reds) that contribute to evoke a vinery. This painting makes me think of classical still life, especially James Peale's ones.

It is very well executed and is very detailed. The glass objects are very realistic looking and the reflections on the glasses add a real depth to the image. As the full-size image is not provided it may be hard to tell, but it seems that a special effort has been made to render the texture of the wine (red wine and white wine donot have the same texture -- even two different whites have different textures). This adds a lot to the image realism.

The composition is good and the strong lines contribute to make the image easily readible. The background is correctly litten and is not intrusive but that very fact prevents to contextualize the image. It may have been good to at least evoke the environment, but that is the artist's choice not to.

On the negative side, the shadows have been overlooked: glasses donot project any shadow, which make them appear floating, and the shadows of the grapes may not be long enough given how the light is projected onto the glasses. Also, while the leaves and the grapes are very well done, they do have a plastic feel that may be caused by the very saturated colors.

All in all this is a very pleasant piece but the shadows might need to get corrected to add further realism.
What do you think?

Нуу, что сказать - Очень круто!!Только одно смущает - по плановости бокал с вином и графин, что-то с ними не так )) Не чувствуется пространственность

This is such a calm piece, and the detail you put into your work is fantastic, I love it.

Игорь, добрый вечер!
Приятная работа. Общий колорит очень красивый... Интересно, что расположен натюрморт по диагонали. Хотя правая верхняя часть и пустая, но не
пугает (правда, я бы там на стене, всё же наверное сделал бы какой-нибудь акцентик, не удержался бы, но это если бы я сам делал такую работу...).
Что ещё... Если говорить о серьёзной живописи, то работа очень графична, весьма детализирована. Но по цвету, по оттенкам далеко не доработана...
Да и конечно же к теням нужно с большей любовью отнестись...:) :)
Ну и на последок... Дерзайте и не останавливайтесь на достигнутом. :thumbsup:

Да..., забыл ещё сказать. Я оставлял послание в "Send a note" с вопросом. Если найдётся время, просмотри...
Я абсолютно не знаю, что делать с таким посланием в мой адрес:
" *Havik has requested "Water gives..." as print."

А забыл совсем ответить.

Ничего не делайте. Вы когда добавляете работу в свою галерею, Вас спрашивают или Вы хотите разместить принт (т.е. любую из работ Вы можете продавать здесь на ДА в качестве картин)
Я Вам советую ничего не делать, так как за вот эту покупку Вы получили копейки центов.
Вот когда раскрутитесь, заработаете нормально, тогда уже есть смысл их выводить. А так бросьте...

В данном рисунке я просто тренировал материал стекла и не хотел больше тратить время ни на что.
Я бы мог посидеть ещё денёк и никто бы от фотографии не отличил, но а смысл-то? От этого навыков не прибавится.

Because it is a study of different materials I'll comment on that.

In short. Glass surfaces look like glass, at least the transparent ones. The black surface looks a bit in the middle between glossy plastic and glass. I feel (but I may be wrong) that green grapes should be more translucent and they should diffuse a little more light of their surface.

Great work, keep on posting studies. :]

Wow thats amazing

I know nothing proper about art, but I feel like a few shadows are a bit lacking, so that some of the items look like they're not quite sitting on the surfaces they're on..

Beautiful composition and colors is a good solution! I wish
