Quick Painting

A quick painting tonight. I didn’t worry too much about this painting tonight, I just wanted to have some fun and paint. Until I ran into glare again…

I really enjoyed painting the fabric here. It had a lot of value changes and I really didn’t need to worry so much about the drawing. I especially like the extreme lights on the fabric compared to everything else.

You will also see tons of glare on this painting. This is really bugging me and I’m going to move around my entire living room / studio so that I can maybe reduce the amount of glare on my painting.

The Setup


My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color



How can I improve the drawing

I didn’t really focus much on drawing here, I was just having some fun painting. It makes since that it is off.



How can I improve the values?

The values I did focus on so I hoped these were close. And they are, except for the parts that are obscured by glare. I think I got the brown stool a bit too dark though…
