Gathering by DjamilaKnopf Gathering by DjamilaKnopf
I feel like I'm heading in a good direction with my work. :) I've been looking at Sargent's work lately and especially the way he handles edges. So this painting is a bit looser and not as polished as usual. Funny enough this also makes it look more realistic, saves time and is more fun. So it's a win win win. :D

I always try to look at my paintings as if I wasn't the one creating them and ask myself the question "If I came across this image online, would I like/fave/save it?" If so, I succeeded in painting something that I am proud of. In my opinion, YOU should be your own favourite artist (when creating personal work at least). Who else is going to get your taste exactly right and incorporate all the themes, design elements and colours that you like?

Anyway, I tried to create a tough and somehwat memorable character here. Maybe I'm going to do a bit more with her in the future. I just love weird hairstyles! Shaved sides, dreadlocks, crazy colours - I'm all in for that! Oh, and there is the possibility for another piece called "Hunting" with similar lighting featuring a dude. Pretty creative, huh? Gathering and Hunting. Now my 5th grade history lessons pay off big time. :D

oh my god. THIS IS GORGEOUS! Great work! I can totally see how Sargent's could improve one's perception about edges and painting in general. He's amazing.
And about that question you ask yourself. I was just researching princesses for a project, you know, building that visual library each one of us has. AND THEN I came across this illustration and I literally gasped out loud "OH MY GOD" and here I am. So, in my view, this couldn't be better. Gosh.
I feel like words are nothing right now. Well...
Just congratulations and thank you for sharing this with the world :heart:

I really really love your artwork, do you mind if I ask you some question on your social media so I can learn from you and apply it to my art?
