Let the Speed Paintings Begin!



A speed painting done in 75 odd mins.In addition to carefully made studies I've decided to do quick paintings like these from reference on a daily basis.Really seem to be helping colour understanding.

Study #1


Found this wonderful snap in my old photography inspiration folder and decided to paint it as a study in drapery and lighting. What started out as a speed painting soon just spiraled into an immersive exercise of realistic rendering.Took a bit more than 2 hours (which would make it a sin to call this a speed painting). But I did call it quits before I spent another two more hours on it just blending the values.I like it when the strokes can be seen. And I think I might have just found my favourite custom brush .A tad bit of colour adjustment to enhance the mood.Painted entirely in greyscale.

Check out the photographer of the original pic.She is simply incredible.
Gonna paint digitally on a daily basis from now on.All digital work from hence forth will be numbered (hence the study#1` title).Follow them on my daily slog-blog http://hardcoregraphite.blogspot.in/

Fortitude


My daily 'slog-blog' is being updated on quite a regular basis these days so do check it out.While 'The Mind-fill' is mainly stuff that fills my mind,'Hardcore Graphite' is more of the blood,sweat and tears side of my daily existence.It documents a lot of the behind the scenes activity (stuff that nobody really cares about,yet matters to me),the hardwork and the daily dose of failures.When the mindfill is my celebration,hardcore graphite is my perseverence.

Take a peak.You might just like.
