One of the greatest things about being an artisti is the chance to experiment with new subjects. For myself, I usually deal in nature and wildlife. But I love trying something different. Such as portraits or still life. It’s always intresting to see where your other strengths are in different areas.
I’ve always had a fight with still life. Never knew why either. Strange. I might be because I have to put the life in something lifeless, which is a challenge in itself. It is always the reason why so many artists adore still life. Putting that life is something is a great reward. Expanding my horizons is something that I love.
For myself the shading is a big part in any project. That transition from dark to white is something that I love to accomplish. It’s my favorite part of the entire creating process really. I suppose that’s why I love any type of subject. If I get to play with the shading, I’m happy.
These are some of my favorite shading examples that I have done:
Art is my life. Every single day. The challenge is always fun.
