Skull Still Life I

I'm attending an oil painting class by Qiang Huang next month. He's a brilliant artist and does mostly still life. I hope to learn more about the use of large brushes and edge quality from him.

'No bones about it' this is a very nice piece of work.

The Good.

This, if anything, just goes to show how much your skill can translate, from painting octupie to painting skulls, you clearly have the skills. You hit every mark in making a good painting, from opposite colors to the subject being slightly off center to dark colors to get the brights popping to the bit of highlight on the edge. This is good work through and through, and i just want to say: Keep up the good work!

The Bad.

Nothing of note.

The Short.

You've gone beyond all the marks for a good painting, and that's something to keep in mind with the next painting.
