Material studies.

Phew this was great practice :)
On 28th of November I had my mind set on finishing 100 studies of materials. Never knew I was able to finish.
I learned so much about materials, reflection, lighting, colors etc. I would recommend such a practice to anyone.
I started saving the references somewhere halfway so if you would like to have that file for your own practice purposes go to this FB link, click options and than download…

Thanks to these studies, I was able to paint these:

The thing I know to take account is how light behaves on matter. Sounds easy to say, tho I guess the true challenge is to apply it.

This is very inspiring, both in terms of quantity and quality. I definitely need to do this, painting different materials is one of my many weaknesses.

Also, the little fly sitting on the poo ball gave me a laugh. :)
