I finally put the last corrections to this #commission portrait of two brothers. I have had some hard time due to the backlit reference picture which I was given to work with, so I had to invent most of the forms in the shadows. In the end I think likeness is here. #oilpainting #portrait #art #traditionalart #mastoart #oil
If you gaze at the arts or the discourse of today with disappointment, devote yourself to making and sharing something better. Build if only in a small way the culture you wish to live in.
The image is "Inspiration" by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1898).
It is not too many good news recently so I am happy to say that a painting "Busy Life", oil on canvas 12"x16" won an Honorable Mention for the Fall for Art, Pines & Palms. Big thanks to judges, Annette Crosby, and Ron Thomson. You can see the show by clicking on this link https://pinesandpalms.org/shop-2/
I just created another account for my ham radio side as @F4INS , as an attempt not to get art followers bored with radio stuff and vice versa . Have a nice sunday everyone :-)
I have just been finishing and photographying these #commission #oilpainting #portraits. I managed to put up a great scanner-like setup to take photos despite the shiny fresh surface, using 2 lamps at 45° and a black curtain with a hole between me and the paintings. I had tried many times to do it outside under overcast scattered light with no avail... #art #mastoart #painting
Asking the Mastodon community : What would be the correct way to toot in multiple languages without flooding followers / timelines ? Use one account per language ? Use language tags ? Include translations within each toot ? ( like this )
Quelle serait la bonne methode pour poueter dans plusieurs langues sans inonder les abonnés / les timelines ? Utiliser un compte par langue ? Utiliser des tags de langues ? Inclure la traduction dans chaque pouet ? ( comme ici )
