Jason is encouraging us to post our work on this blog, so here is my Gary painting, based on the sketch Seiler provided.
This is before the critique. Jason's critique was ( as usual ) right on the money. The largest criticism on this one was that I made some of the values too dark..and that the darks were a little too dark in general. I have to agree with that, because after he painted over it, I saw exactly what he meant. I'm still fairly pleased with this one, but as with any work, there is always room for improvement...and I'll hate it next week. :)
One of the things I love about this course is looking at everyone else's critiques as well. What a treat, because I've learned as much from the work of the other students as I have from my own.
