Your art is absolutely amazing. I've just started out on oil paints and I was wondering if you had any tips? I'm not sure how to make it look realistic, when and where to put shadows etc. Thanks!
Thanks. Well, i’ve been ask several times about “technics”, so my tips: paint and paint again … find your way, it could take time, possibly some years … try to understand how painters you love do when you’re lost (see old masters, it’s always a good help - i’ve studied Van gogh for exemple-)… but always keep in mind to do Your own painting, you’re a unique person: have a unique painting, there is no issue in just copying others, i see too many painters there working “à la manière de” (don’t know how to say it in english), without looking for their own way. Practice the most you can, your technic will rise, you will find your solutions and your “style” will be revealed. That’s how i work. Sorry for my poor english, hope it helps, regards, Félix.
