Check out this picture painted by one of our long term students (done in oil paint). Incredible work. It’s especially impressive when one takes into consideration that the initial drawing for this was done from direct observation, no photo was used.
Working with this person gave us a great opportunity to talk in a detailed way about painting flowers and leaves convincingly as well as how to accurately mix colours and tones to effectively replicate light shining on petals.
The artist still isn’t done with the work and made me promise I wouldn’t post too much of the lower half of the picture which features some complex painting of glass. Stay tuned to see the whole work!
