Yesterday I went to the studio for the first time after the holidays. I got about 2,5h of work in, especially putting highlights and details in the grass- and water areas. I also started tackling the proportions of the figure (my dad). His head was too big. Surprisingly, the rest of the body seems to be pretty accurate. I always need more practice on proportions, that’s probably my greatest weakness.
As I mentioned before I am studying for an art history exam. Some f these artists were true masters. They are and inspiration and humble me as well.
Here are pictures of some of my exam artists: Titian, Diego Velazquez, John Singer-Sargent and René Magritte.
