Here comes result from my streamed sketch session on twitch channel.
Digital portrait of Rick from Walking Dead. Included also my spoken commentary in Czech language. I can try to do it in English if someone will be interested :)
Small sketch done during the last digital painting hangout (CZ). We were studding nice landscape picture with focus on the light. I was not able to just stick with the reference, so I made few changes and created completely different fantasy landscape...:)
My fresh new acrylic painting based on my photo from holiday on Crete. There were these interesting and unknown (for me) plants, not sure if it is tree or flower or what, but it was pretty high, around 4-5 meters or so. green trunk with tiny branches ended with clots of something... :)
The picture was completely painted with pallet knife and I was trying to create some color structure/relief - kind of impasto, but not very successfully.
Painted on gessoed 40 x 30 cm hardboard, signed and will be varnished...
I was trying to distinguish the effort and work on multiple pictures in parallel. The advantage is that my ayes have not chance become accustomed to one picture.and stays fresh for a longer time (just my theory). Also trying to play with colors a bit...
There is the same model in both pictures, original photo reference from thefirebomb .
Digital portrait sketch from Digital painting hangout sessions this week. The G+ hangouts were canceled and completely moved to youtube... not so intuitive setup (from my point of view) but will see the future...
Anyway, I was experimenting with colors and textures (just a bit).
Done with CS4, Huion tablet and photo reference...
Here is set of few digital training sketches. I was trying to regain my lost abilities :) so here are my attempts done during one evening. I was not focusing on accuracy, just playing with colors and form..
They are far to be perfect but I would like to show some update and let the world know that I´m alive... :)
I´ve finished painting of my parents house finally... was working on this too long (meaning - walking around this on my easel). Not very good idea to go start with very poor reference from google street map, moreover printed just in black and white... next time I´ll be smarter, proper colorful photo reference can make things much easier...
btw, I hate that green...
Acrylic paint on 30x40cm stretched canvas, signed varnished, ready to hang on my parents wall...:)
There was a digital painting hangout this week and I´ve started digital portrait inspired by a clip "Wrong side of Heaven". It was not finished (see the WIP picture) but I stayed tuned and proceed with this painting till the state I would call "finished" :)
I´m a new subscriber of the "Plain Air" magazine this year. There is a lot of inspiring stuff. I saw there amazing painting of orchids from Jerry Markham and decided that I must make some study of this awarded masterpiece... so here it comes... :)
The original is painted with oils my version is done with acrylics, painted on stretched canvas 40x30 cm...
It was a fun and also interesting ride because this not my usual "style".
Here comes next acrylic experiment called "Green bridge" (Zeleny most). I was inspired by cool macro photography of ladybug and I was trying to imitate those nice blue-greens and smooth gradients.
I would say that colors are quite good but gradients with acrylic paint is real challenge (quite known true, I guess). I had also hard times with ladybug red color, even red right from tube was not so shine red as I would like to have...there must be some trick...:)
Anyway, enjoy the Green bridge painted with acrylic paint on 32 x 24 cm = 12,5 x 9,4 inch cardboard 400g/m2, signed and varnished...
Acrylic painting based on my photo from nice weekend spent in Beskydy hills (Czech Republic). You can see also speed up video with process, sadly there is missing the very last update with details, but most of the process is visible...enjoy... :)
Acrylic paint on stretched canvas 30x40cm, glossy varnish.
There was Digital painting hangout last night and here you can see my work from there... digital sketch portrait of Morgan from Walking dead series.
I can´t wait for the next season, will be coming soon.... yaaayee
I has been doing some research during few last weeks about streaming, streamers and related stuff. I am quite excite about this so I decided to try it too.
You can check my new streaming channel here - twitch.tv/ultrajaryn , there is also active thumbnail on this blog, top of the right side panel.
I´m going to stream my painting process, usually between 20:30 and 23:00 so you can check whats going on...:) Currently it´s commented in Czech language, I will try English in the future, maybe. It´s watchable even without sound... :)
Here you can check recorded first stream, it´s speed up 16x so it´s not so boring... :)
Welcome in the New year 2016. Here comes some blog update after the Xmas long pause...
Portable plain air easel
I was working on my new transportable easel - I would like to focus on plain air paintings this year, so I need to prepare proper gear for it... Base of the easel is a standard portable camera tripod, the rest are mainly hardboard parts made by me. No rocket science, just check the picture...
Here comes some traditional landscape pictures, I was mostly experimenting with different types of acrylic paint and some techniques.
I´ve also started new sketchbook for these color experiments. Nothing fancy, just a standard paper, will see how it will handle all the paint...
The first one was painted according my photo reference from Beskydy - Valassko. 22x17cm
"Strom na Javornicku"
work in progress
And just training/experiment painting of a tree. A4
