Having fun writing some guitar riffs today. Probably not very original sounding but who cares :D hopefully it will turn into a full song.
The video was shot in playback, since I recorded multiple guitars and also the bass. The drums are computer programmed.
Throwback to two days ago when I was in Milan for an art competition. Didn't win any prize but I had a lot of fun visiting Milan for the first time in my life. This is Galleria del Corso, where only prestigious shops are located. Had a lot of fun looking at all the things I can't afford haha. Me on the right and my cousin's on the left.
Progress on the statuette. Compare it with the last picture of it and you'll understand how I work pretty much all the time. It's basically progressively refining the forms with every pass.
I'm refining the shapes of the statuette right now. Here you can see how I use van dyke brown as a background color in order to paint the negative shapes in. It's amazing how far more accurate it becomes when I shift my focus to negative shapes after I blocked in the positive ones.
Further work. Can you tell the difference from the previous pic? It's funny how progress slows down a bit after you lay in the big shapes!
Tip: Always focus on the negative shapes.
Slowly getting closer.
I enjoy working this way. I'm basically just progressively painting more accurate shapes without much care about anything else. Feels a lot like sculpting. Then I'll sand it and repaint it with more attention to color, value and paint application.
Lol I hope I'm not spamming too much with these wip shots.
Started the underpainting. I'm using Asphaltum from Talens Rembrandt this time. Nothing to do with the old unstable pigment: it's a modern beautiful and lightfast shade! And no, I'm not endorsed by them haha :D
Here we go again, a blank panel. About to start working on a new painting. I feel so excited every time. This is exactly why I love art: you can always start anew, tell a new story and detach from the past.
