Regret - Oil painting


Author Comments

This is the first of 3 paintings i participated in the exhibition .. this one is called "Regret" .. Oil Painting .. 100x70 cm.. Original work


Nice portrait. It's clear you can render really well and you have a firm grasp on design and composition so there's really nothing constructive I can say about this lol. I'm trying to get the technique down for oils right now and will be using this piece as inspiration!

Thank you for the kind words :) . Im glad u liked it and im honored its inspiring you. All it takes is practice and patience and you will do even better :)

Wow, great job. Looks so realistic, everything was done top notch, the eyelashes, the glint in the eyes, the moisture and line detail on the lips, the skin color, the subtle tears, everything.

thank you :) i think In this one i used "wet on wet" technique for the first phase like laying the mid tones, shadows and light. then after that 3 or 4 layers smoothing things up. these paintings took around 30-40 days each. thats why my oil painting production was so poor. i made like 8-10 paintings a year. its probably why i switched to digital but i do miss the oil from time to time :)

This is the most beautiful painting I've ever seen, fantastic job..
