Digital Painting Practice

I've been really needing to get up to speed on digital painting again. Some studies I did this past week: two from reference photos, a Sargent master copy, and a still life. More pots! >_<

I've been using as much as I can from what I've learned from traditional oil painting, but I'm also trying to learn how to make my own brushes. Also still using RGB sliders to get my colors because it's a lot closer to "mixing" colors the traditional way than using HSB sliders.

And thanks to Margaret for some painting help :0

Painting with Sunny

Taking a painting class with Sunny Apinchapoing at 3Kicks Studio this spring. Some of my work from the first 4 weeks.

In class paintings 12"x16" each

And of course homework! Some still life (9"x12") and some plein air paintings (7"x9") 
I did in between weeks. 

Great class so far, and Sunny brings in tons of his great paintings as samples. The emphasis of the class is color so we have a choice of doing still life or painting from a live model. I don't have a lot of experience in figure painting yet so I think I'll hold off for now XD
