Today is Wednesday, so that means its time to share some stuff I've been working on this week. Its been at least 7 or 8 years since I last touched a paintbrush, but I've been finesseing the painting below over the last few days. Some people swear by oil, but I prefer to use acrylic. Its easier to manage, dries faster, and can be easily painted over if you find your work unsatisfactory.
There is still much to be done with this piece, but I'm happy I got most of the structure and layout of the room down. Next, I will focus on color correction to push depth of field and clarify plane changes among various objects. I'll probably be using various tinting and muting techniques to create some atmospheric depth in the background while adding more contrast in the foreground. I also want to clarify my light source(window), but its a bit difficult. The room naturally bounced a lot of light in an atmospheric manner, so I may have to artificially dim sections of the room furthest from the light source to achieve that effect. Afterwards, I will go ahead and other fine details to make the room more personalized. It feels very boring and static at the moment.
If I have any painter friends lurking around here, what do you think? Any tips you'd like to share to achieve the goals listed above? Am I on the right track? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. As always, dont forget to like and share this post~
Until next time,
