Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I used a photograph for picture. Chalked the outline's first....using coloured chalk. Painted the picture using oil paints. 'This is my very first oil painting!. :)

Beautiful work on the light in this piece! For a slightly more surreal effect you can add a bit of bluish purple to the shadows since yellow light will cast shadows with a blue/purple in them.

Thank you for your suggestion Micah - that helps a lot as I am new to oil painting, and your classes and advice are greatly valued! Really enjoy them.

I love how you captured the light in this piece. Looks fantastic! Capturing the light is the hardest.

Thank you for your kind words Ly. I love your painting by the way! How did you get such a straight line with the golf club? Lovely work on the ladies legs! :)

I turned the painting in the direction that the club would be vertical and used short strokes along a ruler. First using a dark colour and then highlight colours. As for the legs, a glazing technique was used applying translucent colour and then opaque colour for highlight.

I think this picture is very attractive. The color contrasts get my attention and the warm colors draw me in. Beautiful, embracing.
