Paint my Photo
The first is better in my opinion and I didn't draw that...... seems more spontaneous. Had a problem with these bananas, wanted to paint from life so bought a bunch then ate them!!!!! Painting food isn't good for me, wouldn't be too tempted with onions or garlic but quite like bananas so note to self for next time choose something I don't really like!!!!
Still need to get looser with these, need to lose a bit more control with more lost edges so will work on that. These quick studies are so good for working out how to do something.... when working loose we are trying to portray something with the minimum amount of detail.... creating symbols for things so that the viewer can still see what the subject is, while maintaining an element of mystery about the piece and that is where the skill lies........ how to portray a subject without the detail but still conveying just enough to let the viewer understand what they are looking at..... hmmmmm??????
Any ideas on a postcard.........!!!!!
