I realized that wood is actually rather complex to paint – while normal, untreated “generic” wood is easy and fun, it becomes a lot more challenging when adding polish, wood finishes, different hues of wood and different light settings. What to do?! Studies!
2 from life, one from photo… not sure I got everything right, especially in the “from life” ones!
Some master studies. I also tried applying the mood of one image to a completely different setting (from photo). That’s basically what “using reference” is all about anyway, but also interesting to do just as a study.
Some random studies and warmups I’m squeezing in whenever I find the time..
Teleporting myself to random locations on earth, then painting what I see :)
