Introversion by waynecampbell-art Introversion by waynecampbell-art
Oil on Canvas
14'' x 18''


This one I had to proof. The best picture of it I have has lots of specular highlights on the brushstrokes due to poor lighting on my part. I used Painter12 to do the touch-up and then saved to the web with Photoshop.
Cheers!

How long did that painting take, if you don't mind me asking?

I don't mind at all, but it's hard to say. If I'm working for me I never log hours and I can put things down for months before attacking them again. This one was for me. I'd say, from ready blank canvas to signature took 15 to 20 days of painting. Some days not so good on progress while others were awesome and were very long. When you blend to this kind of finish anything out of place or 'Painterly' is going to look wrong. It is frustrating and also very satisfying. This doesn't include the model's time or design/build/compostion time, framing and varnishing but it does include the learning curve such as mixing the colors and trying to work out a the best color scheme. This one went well while "Thoughts of a Lover" took six weeks. I couldn't figure out what it was trying to teach me. :)

Thank you, very much. This sort of thing fascinates the hell out of me. I know the feeling. Sometimes the smallest detail, takes me the most amount of time and in the end nobody even really notices it.

:) I liken those parts of the painting to rocket self-destruct mechanisms. They have to be there and they have to be just right 'cause if they get noticed its because something is going wrong. :D

Excellent work Mr. Campbell, excellent work. It is certainly one of The better depictions of introverts I've seen lately.

WOW! How do you do this. I just cannot believe someone can create something so realistic with oil. I'm a fan of your paintings, absolutely!

Thank you Andela1998, I just approach it like you do for your drawings. Keep fixing the things that don't look right until you are happy with what you have. I too, didn't know it could be done until I saw others, both old and current, doing it. Then it was just a matter of figuring out how it could happen. Material and drapery are easier than skin. A curve of material can be in the wrong place but a curve of a cheek cannot. This is why the material is better looking than face. It's the same with drawing and placing hair strands verses drawing and placing pupils. One can be out of place while the other...not at all, eh?

I really think you can, you certainly have the interest and skills, now all you have to do is take the time to learn something new. It's like learning to ink, it's hard at first, but then, it starts to work, you figure it out and you get to smile because of what you've done.
You can. Have Fun!

looks awesome you are a fantastic painter. my only note is her eye brow in the high light there is something unnatural looking about it but perhaps its the photo may be just a bit more hair irregularities so it dose not look so drawn on i hope you do not mind my posting that observation its meant only as a side comment as the painting is beyond words
