Apple and Banana – Acrylic

Posted by | May 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

Apple and Bananas again. This time it’s a painting from life, not using a photo and painting as a reference. I like the colors and composition.

Green Granny Smith Apples

More green apples today. They have nice yellow green and smooth surface. I ate one of them after painting. A little bit sour. 🙂

Speaking of my acrylic painting, I should focus on value and fewer brush strokes.

Apple and Pear in Acrylic

Posted by | May 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is a still life painting practice after value study last week. I feel like I’ve improved a little bit. The apples looks more tempting! 🙂 The green is till not quite close to the real color. It should be more yellow. Same as the pear. Also, it looks nicer in picture than it is. 🙂

Value Study – Apples in Acrylic

Posted by | April 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

I am doing value study in apples, mainly in black and white or one color. Value is arguably the most important element in creating believable, dynamic images. If you master the value, you can paint anything in still life. It is so challenging to paint what you see in correct value tones.
