As I mentioned in one of my posts earlier that I just started taking Oil Painting Classes. So I will be trying my hands on below mentioned Artist’s painting
Disclaimer: This will be only for educational purposes and NOT FOR SALE (just in case artist stumbles on my blog) 🙂
I picked “Leonid Afremov’s” painting, as his paintings are simply gorgeous. I have always appreciated his art and this was the only reason i chose his painting for inspiration. The blend of warm and cold colors is like achieving impossible. Check out his original painting:
Now I learned that it is best to make an under painting when working with oil paints. Under Painting means you paint the whole thing in Yellow Ochre / Burnt Sienna colors, basically putting everything in its place and darkening the shades where ever the painting (with colors) is going to be super dark.
That said: Check out my under painting now (now my painting will not be as awesome as his piece of art but it is the very first step of a tall ladder, therefore please lower your expectations 😀 and please refrain from throwing raw tomatoes and bad eggs on my painting :D)
Looks super bad right now , I know. But I am keeping my fingers crossed 🙂
