1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: first oil painting ever, still life, wet on wet. constructive criticism needed on: Today at 08:06:36 AM
I think the most helpful advice I ever got was to look at each shadow as a shape.  ( this is kind of an abstract concept) but by that I mean sometimes our brains think too logically and stop us from seeing what's really there. ( ie, Brain: that is a lemon with a shadow, I already know what that looks like so I don't need to pay close attention.) also look at the colors of the shadows.  We are preconditioned to think of shadows as gray or black, or just a darker shade of the predominant color, but often times they might seem blue or purple or brown, etc)
  By now you're thinking I'm a nut, lol, but I guess for me, my biggest challenge was always turning off my brain's "know-it-all" attitude and seeing what is really there.
  You're off to a great start by the way, a great sense of proportion.  You've chosen a difficult subject with all the reds together but that will force you to make them more dimensional so that they don't all blend together.
  Take an hour a day to work on it and study it.  I'd love to see it in a week!

Okay, my comments are: this is incredible, I love it so much, and you are amazing.  My thoughts are: stop being jealous of the Raging Sloth, I wish I knew how to work with resin, and...stop being jealous of the Raging Sloth.  Wink

Wow-wee!  Such amazing stuff!  I love ALL of it!  The voodoo doll and those teeny tiny books!  So great!  The bugs and the tentacled creature- oh and that little pigeon fetus?  Crazy!  Love them!  I have to say, those teensy little bottled mushrooms are pretty much the cutest things ever!  Great stuff and definitely curiosity cabinet worthy!

I'm so sorry for everyone experiencing the snow. It is in the 70s and I have my doors open here.

Smeddley received today and pioneer's is about done. I want to add one thing but I think I threw out the charger cord for my dremel.
Sorry??  I'm actually kind of excited about it.  Too many years in California and I'm glad to be back to the seasons!
  Sorry to hear about the Dremel debacle. Hope you find the cord!
