A piece from high school...

It was oil on canvas, in the larger dimensions (like 30"x40 something)

how long approx. did this take you, do you remember..? it's great by the way. i love the way it looks so simple but still professionally realistic...:]

It took my prob about 24-35 hours total,over the course of a few weeks of classes back in school, thanks :) It's a bit more realistic than my modern stuff, but I guess we all move in different directions... who says I can't go backwards? lol

this is kind of a reply but better than never i say, so hey, i was just looking at your work(s) and thinking how i would love to be able to paint like you... :sigh: the thing is, i have an art exam next week and it's impressionism.. :) .. and - i'm rubbish with colours :laughing:

:D awww thanx :) One major thing that helped me with impressionism was evading glasses for the first 3 years of middle school, I think it helped me to see the world as blocks of color instead of detail. They eventually caught me (I had been memorizing the eye charts for the longest time lol!)

Maybe try to squint at the subject to the point when everything gets soft, that will help the blocks of color in the image stand out.

:laughing: that's a funny story
too bad i never did that when they checked our eyesight in primary school, as that resulted in me obediantly wearing glasses for some years.. :hmm: although it's not like i needed them anyway :D
well, thankyou so much for your advice. i think that is my problem - i can't see the colour of something in a particular lighting, coz the original colour keeps flashing in my eyes. it's like i'm blind in a way.. and it really bugs me! but i do have a couple of more impressionistic ideas, so fingers crossed :) and good luck to you! :heart:

It's was my first real piece in oils... it wasn't very typical of my style (I scrutinized everything afraid to muddy the colors, etc.), so I try to keep it apart from the rest of my body of work. Good to hear you like it :) (I spent soooo long on it, to long for me normally I'm a very impatient person lol)
