Tip of the week

by Roman aka jar

Train your eye to study statues of all kind.
Don't just walk by. Stand still, look, observe. Not only on the beauty of the sculpt itself, but also on volumes and how they are hit by light and shadow, color variations in different ambiences, weathering and beauty. This is a free gift we can all appreciate, if we start looking and visualising.

As a figure painter you can only learn from it as statues are nothing else than what we paint, just slightly bigger and often with a little bit more history. If you want more inspiration on statues check this article.


If you see a guy with a camera or pen'n'paper in your hometown, spending quite the time in front of statues, it might be me.

Happy visualising!
