This is good,i looked at a lot of peoples work lately on freelanced.com,very few i see with oil on canvas,which tells me its hard to work with and it is,you did good,dear fellow artist.A kudos for you.
Matthias Waite - Over 30 days ago
Thank you. Yes it is a bit of a challenge. I had an instructor discribe painting with oil is like painting with a wet noodle!
Bonafide Artist LLC. - Over 30 days ago
yea,i see what you mean.
Matthias Waite - Over 30 days ago
The thing that is cool with oil though is that once you have a feel for it you can paint with far more variety then other mediums. Acrylic is not unlike egg tempera and gouache. Watercolor is fairly versatile but I find it to be one of the hardest to control. Kudos to water colorist.

Well,idont like water color too much,but i find some people do a good job with it,i just saw on freelanced a few peoples work of mixed medias of water color,ink and pencil color and let me tell ya,that showed me something right there when dealing with water color,i might just try medias like that together myself,the persons art work looked very good too, i liked it.

Painting the leaves was quite the task. This is a fairly old piece but despite some of its problems I'm still very found of it.

Said "you seem to have some classic, yet cool influences! Did u do art school? Self taught?" to Matthias Waite
Over 30 days ago -
Matthias Waite - Over 30 days ago
Thank you. Yes I'm self taught primarily. I did attend college where I studied art history and studio art. Sadly, other then providing models to draw in figure drawing (and no anatomy instruction) and not very instructional painting classes I've been forced to teach myself.
