Hi everyone! This is my first skull drawing. It’s pastel on Pastelmat, 12,5x15". I wanted to draw a skull for soooo long! It’s not done yet, need to work the tablecloth much more and some other stuff but I wanted to share it with you and I would appreciate any thoughts about everything. I mean color, composition, technique etc. I am not sure about it… I made changes from the original photo and this is difficult for me. I am not sure about the background. Do you think dark backgrouwn would be better? Anyway, thank you for your time. Wishing you a wonderful week and I am looking forward for your critique. (iPhone shot)
Super job, and what a lot of different textures and surfaces you’ve taken on. I like the light background, there are thousands of skulls all painted with a dark background in the tenebrist aesthetic, so this makes a nice change.
Hi Martin, thanks so much for the lovely comment and for your time to respond. I am glad you like it. Have a wonderful day!
Great job Irene! I absolutely love painting bone—it is a fascinating texture. What would you say was the most challenging aspect of this for you?
Hi Anthony, so glad you approve. Your skulls are amazing. Well the most challenging aspect was the tablecloth.
Really? Well it looks like it was handled confidently.
I am always frustrated when I start drawing clothes and portraits. Lot’s of effort there. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Much appreciated! Have a creative rest of the day!
