  • Finished painting Durer's portrait carvings

    Finished paint the A. Durer's portrait that I have been carving. I waited for the paint dept to be empty so that I could paint without over the shoulder coaching .

    As always all C&C are encouraged and welcomed.

        Thanks, Herb, Pam is just waiting for me to get in the PD and clean my mess up. It certainly makes me appreciate her doing most of the painting.

            You did a really nice job on those Joe. Don't be getting too good though or the prime mover in the paint department might get miffed and go on strike.

                  First of thanks to you all for the considerate words
                  Merle~for some reason these seemed more straightforward in where to shade ???
                  Tinwood~aw yes, sage words of wisdom
                  Tom~not really, just like to change up, try to improve my still limited skills
                  Joe~I guess there are different things that jerk each of our chains, and the first viewing of one his drawings I knew I was going to have to try a relief

                      In the first set .... I like the forth one....because it is more natural looking ....with a touch of color. In that picture the shading is almost like the old master drawings. I can appreciate then the dual nature of 1508 to 2017 of two artist of different times. The first one the guy in the green hat ...perhaps too dark of colors and not enough shading to bring out the relief???? not sure if that would do it?

                              I like them all, a reminder of how tough times used to be...in the good 'ol days.
