Paul Cézanne: Master Study

Today I decided to try and mimic the style and compositions of Paul Cézanne, a French post-impressionist. I don't know too much about him, just that he's done a mash of landscapes / objects and cubist stuff.  I found it quite challenging, working from already stylized paintings.

Like yesterday, I took around 20 minutes for the value sketch and 10 minutes for the color pass. So 30 minutes per sketch.

Kind regards,

Rembrandt van Rijn: Master Study

Since I'm quite enjoying practicing digital painting, I felt like making it a little more interesting by doing a couple of studies based on one artist. Today, Rembrandt van Rijn. Tomorrow, I'm not sure, but since it is the weekend I'll have plenty of time to find an artist I like.

For the value sketch I took around 20 minutes to get sufficient amount of detail in. The color didn't take as long, so I guess about 30 minutes per sketch.

Kind regards,

Noah Bradley: Master Study

I've started working on my paint skills as I am having a blast at Grid doing look development but am looking for more painterly activities next to texturing and shading.

Currently following the advice of Noah Bradley and making very fast / short (~10 minute) lighting sketches from other paintings. So far I've used a book called "Color and Light" by James Gurney as my main reference as I know myself and can't cheat like this. Below are the results from the past three days.

Kind regards,

Müllerthal Hike

Went on a small hike with my girlfriend. 70 km along the Müllerthal Trail in Luxembourg. Fantastic environment but the weather could have been better.

First day. Wrong turn made for 3km of asphalt.

Second day. Working our way up.

Third day. Change of scenery.


I'm into taking square pictures now. Kind regards,
