Amaryllis: I think it's coming along well, you're doing good at making it have a painterly feel. I think what SpiritDreamer said is correct though, darken up your colors more, also they are more saturated in the original image. For instance his skin tone, it's a little more orangey yellow in some spots, also note the more highly saturated darks around his head/hair.

And good job to you too architectus, it's looking nice!

01 January 2007, 07:45 PM
eduart just add some noise and you're done no? Wonderful painting!

Rebeccak good to see how your piece is developing. Very easy to the eye, your style... it sort of has a calming effect on me. I think her chin is too short and too pointy though...

reaveress Thanks! Working on her presence ;)
Don't forget about her forehead in yours... also bring her chin a bit forward (our left side) if you can

amaryllis the nose seems too short and I think that's why you've painted the whole face a bit too short. Too late to fix but I thought it was worth mentioning. Looking forward to see your progress... a few warm tones will really bring it alive!

architectus I agree with Glenn that swann is just marvelous. I actually like it's beak better than on Lord Leighton's piece. But you're gonna have a lotta work on that dress.; it looks like a pain to paint :)

Glenn Congrats on finishing! It's really really wonderful! thanks for inspiring us all again!


Been painting all weekend so finally making some progress on this one. Stil far away from home though and with school starting again tomorrow I can totally forget about making it by wednesday. Oh will, gone to far now not to finish it (just not in time) :)

01 January 2007, 11:47 PM
rebeccak looking good, the necklas is very detailed.

glenn, It turned out really nice.

nr43- looking good, the shirt looks very nice. You can easily compete in terms of quality.

01 January 2007, 12:00 AM
Glenn, Intervain, and architectus,

Thanks! :)

Pretty much done with the jewelry - there was some MASSIVE cheating with the pearls. :D

I've avoided the lace for as long as I can...I guess it's up next. Yikes.

01 January 2007, 12:36 AM
Really great work on this page. This might be my final version. It has still a lot of problems and the more i keep working on it, the more I'm finding. But I think I learned my part out of it.

01 January 2007, 12:47 AM
Beccak you clever woman - have you duplicated one pearl over and over again, or am I seeing things?! I want to know how you got them so pretty! :deal: :bounce: [sheesh I'm a 3d person and I havent' thought of doing it in 2 :banghead: dumbo!]

Vulturius - the colours are perfect - the figure is very elongated and narrow right now! you need to make her wider [liquify tool in photoshop will do that for ya nicely :) - i love that one :D] don't give up!

NR43 - great! C'mon YOU CAN DO IT! anyway will be waiting for you to finish deadline or not! IT's so close now!

Glenn - WEEE! DONE! :) great job!

01 January 2007, 02:46 AM
Spirit Dreamer and Roja - thank you for your suggestions. You're right - it needed to go darker, more saturated and warmer. The brightness/contrast fix in Painter was a good suggestion - a kind of nudge to get me going in that direction.

NR43 - The length of the nose and face is defintiely worth checking out. I've had the grid turned offf for a while now - so it could definitely be the case of the shrinking head...

Rebecca - the detail work you are doing on the drapery and jewelry is just drop dead gorgeous. Wow.

Spirit Dreamer - Congrats on finishing. It's been great to see the progression. I know this is a question that may not be answerable - but - how do you know you're done?

Here's my latest update - still much to do:

01 January 2007, 03:29 AM
wow amaryllis - that's a huuuuge improvement! One giant leap! :applause:

01 January 2007, 03:51 AM
hey this is off topic, but do you guys know a good dvd that teachings traditional oil painting, how to paint people.

01 January 2007, 04:18 AM
hey this is off topic, but do you guys know a good dvd that teachings traditional oil painting, how to paint people.
architectus, see the links at the bottom of this ( post.

amaryllis, thanks for the compliments! Nice progress on your piece as well. :)

Intervain, thanks! Heh, yep, just the same pearl - really easy to paint, just a midtone circle, a bit of bounce light, and a highlight, plus a shadow. :) Then, duplicate like mad. :D

01 January 2007, 06:44 AM
Wow Rebecca! That's some crazy fine detail you have put into this project. I wish I knew how to render that smoothly.

I'll have to take your word that you cheated, because it looks AOK to me ;)

01 January 2007, 08:51 AM
OK, I've been so busy/lazy recently that I've been slacking on my Titan pic.

After posting my first sketch I haven't been spending any time on this project. Tonight I sat down scrapped the original flats I posted and painted a new version. I was surprised with how quickly this came together. Only an hour and forty mintutes were spent. Must mean I'm starting to get the hang of this digital painting. Practice does make perfect.

At this rate I should be done by the Wednesday deadline(I hope!).

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on texturing this. Something to make it seem more like stone. Different texture brushes are still uncharted waters for me.

Well enjoy what I have so far.

01 January 2007, 10:54 AM
Johan, Magdalena, Amaryllis, architectus...THANKS...:)

Amaryllis...I know I am done, when Mrs Spirit Dreamer says she is tired of posting the same image...LOL.. or when I run out of paint..:scream:
I think I might be able to squeese one more post out of her tonight..I worked a little more on his collar and rid of the yellow /gold tint...makes it look wrong,..too destracting, but such a pretty color..:scream:
But seriously..I think you are done, when you satisfy the need that drove you to paint it, to begin with....:)

01 January 2007, 11:51 AM
whew this was a lot of work. I think I am finished

01 January 2007, 12:14 PM
HEY....architectus...:bounce: :applause: :thumbsup:


Really like the way you kept the softness alive in it.
That's what makes that painting so beautiful to begin with...FANTASTIC JOB...:thumbsup:


01 January 2007, 02:23 PM
@SpiritDreamer wow....looks cool...though the hand is smaller than how it should be and I didn't like how you rendered the clothes...:thumbsup:
@architectus wow .. wow .. it looks perfect .. the only thing that I can add is that it is a litle bit blury .. more crispy edges would be nice ... but is owesomne!

great job guys!


01 January 2007, 04:21 PM
Simply Amazing! too bad I have to run off to school... I would have looked at it a bit longer :)

Had about an hour so I started fixing the face (Thanks Anand!! golden tip, I hope I see it myself next time... a bit sooner :) )

It still needs some work but it's better already I think (her right eye is a tad too wide... fixing that should make it possible to get the face right)

More soon...

01 January 2007, 06:14 PM
phew.. finally the holidays end.. and so does the sketch.. well i hope this aint too bad to be counted as an entry :rolleyes: .. this is my first workshop and i would like to mention tht it was a fun experience.. i have never devoted so much time in ne of my sketches.. it really taught me the vertue of patience :) thnx every1

01 January 2007, 06:14 PM
Here is my final rendering for this workshop.

Made an executive decision not to worry about the rock and the texture of the stone skin. Mostly because this is about anatomy, not geology. I like the smooth look of it just how it is.

Well it's been loads of fun and quite a learning experience.

Hope you like the final product ;)

In case I needed to include this -

Choice 14:
Alessandro Algardi (1598-1654)

THANKS...eduart....everything on mine is different than the original,
lighting, color,rag, cloth,concept,mood and especially the hand that is holding the rag...hate that hand in the original, looks too big, and swelled up like it has been stung by a bee or bitten by a snake..I know that was his style, or well with his women, but looks like an enlarged womans hand on a man in his painting, to me anyway, so I created my own..:scream: ...NOT AFTER AN EXACT COPY...want something that I can feel comfortable signing my own name to...:)

Thanks Rebecca...took your suggestion, got rid of the yellow on his collar...gave him a clean shirt..:scream:

Now, I am calling this experiment with an Ingress painting...DONE

The wips for this experiment can be seen on my anatomy / sketchbook thread...if anyone is interested in seeing the different ways that I treated and went about painting this painting... was a great and very fun ...journy of exploration...learned a whole lot of new things...that's what counts in the me anyway :scream: :)


OFDW 020

01 January 2007, 12:48 AM
eduart really nice job.

thanks everyone for your compliments. I think this is the most time I ever spent on any work. I spent a lot of hours on it. I might try to use a small hard brush set to high opacity in a few places to crisp it up more.

01 January 2007, 06:44 AM
Great looking stuff guys. :)

Still slogging forth!

01 January 2007, 08:39 AM
Hi there
Great work done and being done here – well done, everyone. :thumbsup:

My final images:

Jan 10th (5 pm!) :)

Choice 06:
Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)
Copy after Ingres's 1804 Self-Portrait

Jan 9th, Tuesday

Choice 16:
Friedrich von Amerling (1803-1887)
Mutter Und Kinden

I'm very pleased to call this done, having made things difficult for myself by working without a proportional sketch to begin with – started too roughly, with just blobs of colour, so it’s not an exact physical copy. To fix some things, I repainted/repositioned her right arm, and reworked the baby, who remains a bit distorted. :)

01 January 2007, 11:45 AM
YMS - the Ingres doesn't show up :(

but the Leighton is amazing! Absolutely stunning work! :bounce: :love: I'm in love!

01 January 2007, 12:23 PM
HEY....Yvonne...:applause: :thumbsup:

Have to agree with Magdalena...a totally BEAUTIFUL painting, and job of painting it...:bounce:


01 January 2007, 12:56 PM

@YMS amazing .... a love the colors
....the Ingres self-portrait doesn't appear to me too


01 January 2007, 05:28 PM
YMS Great works!
eduart: i like your painting
Rebeccak: really nice job.
SpiritDreamer: :thumbsup:
My next step (next 1 hour and half). Is not final, but i don't known when i finalise this work. I am really busy!

01 January 2007, 06:06 PM
Magdalena, Edd, Spiritdreamer, Dim
Hey, thanks for your comments :) I'm really pleased that Kinder's off the to-do schedule, now! It was a battle to get it done.

YMS - the Ingres doesn't show up
Sorry, I just reserved the spot for the Ingres - finishing off and posting today, Jan 10th for me! :)

want something that I can feel comfortable signing my own name to... Good job with him, Glenn, and well done on making him your own! :thumbsup: Have to agree that the hand is a jarring note in the painting.

Hope you get a bit more time, Dim, for your piece.
And, Rebecca, that jewellery and those pearls are stunning!
Edd, your guy, Neptune, is so 3D, well done. Great values.

01 January 2007, 06:27 PM
Biondina (final) with pencil

01 January 2007, 08:17 PM
Glenn(spiritdreamer): so sorry, i didn`t realise that you had commented on my piece, very kind, the hair was making me tear mine out! lol

there are some amazing works here, forgive my not commenting on very many, just wanted to mention; YMS, Spiritdreamer, Magdalena (Intervain), Eduart, Rebecca....absolutely amazing stuff!
real honour to even take part in this thread.....


01 January 2007, 11:32 PM
Jan 9, 2007

Lesson learned : Never say done! LOL
Couldn't resist making the hands bigger to go more with the original painting. Not exactly the same, but close.
Appreciate any opinions on them.

Take care

OFDW 020

01 January 2007, 03:40 AM
YMS, that looks fantastic! Lots of amazing entries here. :)

krispee, thanks! :)

Finally tackled the lace today:

01 January 2007, 04:12 AM
Well, I guess here's my final version of Clytemnestra. I wish I could work it a little bit more. Anyway, even I know it isn't a great copy work, I had learned a lot painting it.

I really want to apologize because of my "no-comments" part on this thread. I get really late to the Workshop, and when I saw so many pages, all filled with wonderful stuff, I didn't knew where to put a comment. I promise I won't repeat that on the next one. :blush:

Well, here it is:

Choice 04:
Lord Frederick Leighton (1830-1896)

C&C are really welcome, so I can take them for my next work. :)

Congrats to all!


Bless ;)

01 January 2007, 04:18 AM
Wow, I didnt had time to post something since xmas. There is so much good work... dont even have time to give critics this time... sorry.
Just want to give a big :thumbsup: to everyone who finished their piece!
Thanks to AztcFireFlower for your crits.. sorry im a bit late, Ive made some changes on the eyes and on the jaw... its not that visible, but a least a bit better... I dont have more time to put on this now :blush:
Thank Rebeccak for the time extension... without it I would not have been able to finish it! :)

Here is my last update. Please give me your crits, there is only 1 day left :surprised
I had a texture on top of it to give it the imperfections of the canvas, cracks.. etc.. tell me if you like that or would prefer without?

Again, nice work everybody!!! This thread rocks!

01 January 2007, 04:19 AM
BapKe, good pencilled Biodinia!

Thanks, krispee and Rebecca. :)

Finally finished up Ingres and added him to my Kinder post. He was determined to stay older and snarling despite my attempts to soften him and get him younger, so I let him be... :eek:

You've shown that lace who's boss, Rebecca, good job!

Bless, she looks great to me. You even put in the fine, soft wrinkles on her brown top! :thumbsup:

01 January 2007, 04:29 AM
It's excellent, Bless. You keep improving with each passing day. Keep it up. We hope to see your next work soon.

01 January 2007, 08:00 AM
Won´t have the time to finish either of my paintings unfortunatelly before deadline :( But I´ll try to finish them and put them in my own thread.

Love the work done here!

01 January 2007, 09:34 AM
thanks guys for the awesome workshop!

Becca - beatutiful job on her!
calan - looks perfect to me :bounce:

SaraD - oh... too bad, I was looking forward to your version! Still be watching on your thread then! :)

Weee it was funnn...

01 January 2007, 09:38 AM
Wow everyone!

3 and a half hours to deadline and getting there :D
I just want to comment on awesome finished works and almost finished ones.
There's so many great works and it's been such an exciting workshop - despite the cramming for time in midst of silly season.

YMS: Both are stunning! great colours and beautifully captured, you should be so proud! Mr Ingres... Hmm I wouldn't say he looks older and snarling, bit of a spunk actually if you asked me ;)

Glenn: well done on your "possibly finished Mr Ingres" I like your take on the painting!

Intervain: Wonderful, both your entries :) You've got one serene and one doe-eyed beauty - not to mention those exquisite dresses I keep gawking at!

Roja: Really lovely painting of Biondina - I think you've captured her beautifully!

Johan: Thank you for your comments :) I can't wait to see your finished one, she's looking great so far!

Rebeccak: Looking forward to seeing your finished piece - beautuful already; the lace is stunning, and I loved the pearl trick, imagine doing that on a canvas ;)

Calan: Nice work! I think the background works well, obviously it has to be up to you, but the crackled canvas look especially top of canvas fits well, possibly make it less "cloudy" at the bottom part of the background.

Blessing: It is such a great learning (agree) and I think you've done really well, capturing a likeness and the feel of the original - well done!

Fatebringer: I know I've commented on your's earlier - but it's worth saying again :) Wonderful painting! Feels like you really did a big leap with this one!

Architectus: Nice work and a great likeness too!

Take care all and big cheers!

a. :)

01 January 2007, 12:04 PM
Choice 01:
Lord Frederick Leighton (1830-1896)
Oil on canvas, 1879
20 1/2 x 16 1/4 inches (52.1 x 41.3 cm)
Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg

and a detail pic:

This has been a great workshop - thank you Rebeccak :) can't wait for the next one!

Method of painting: (just a bit of a blab really :D)

I have done this one in acrylics (on canvas) (size 45x60cm - so pretty close to the original size, even though I did crop her blouse a bit..) I did an initial sketch, charcoal on paper, but no actual sketching on the canvas. I don't use grids or measuring, basically just a lot of looking (read staring) at the A5 printout of the original which has been blue-tacked to the easel while I've been working. My palette has been made up using: Raw Umber, Burnt Sienna, Paynes Grey, Cadmium and Alizarine Red, Cadmium Yellow and Titanium White plus a little Ultramarine Blue. I have really enjoyed this one; studying a painting so in-depth is totally humbling, frustrating and rewarding! :)

Taking photos of paintings is a challenge in itself... so I've included one that's a little darker, yet has a bit more focus than the one above...

Take care all and big cheers to everyone!!
a. :)

01 January 2007, 12:28 PM

GREAT JOB...:applause:


01 January 2007, 01:07 PM
Thank you Glenn :) Kind and warming words!

It really has been fun!

Officially this side of the world: TIME has now run out and I can't wait to see the rest of the worlds final paintings! :bounce:

Take care

a. :)

01 January 2007, 01:13 PM
Gorgeous stuff guys!

Remember that you have til the end of today, Jan. 10th, in your timezone. Please post your finished pieces everyone!

It's been a fantastic Workshop. :)

01 January 2007, 01:19 PM
hi everybody
alright, this is as good as it gets :D. I wish I did better, had more time, patience etc.. Oh well. Hope sir Leighton won't come haunting me at nights for ruining his work... :):scream:

Thanks for all the helpful comments (especially the one about soft brushes really helped - I'll try to stay away from them more often) :)
I had very little time left to read all the posts in this OFDW - so I have to apologize for commenting scarcely (hopefuly improve that in future). Seeing all the great images here makes me want to improve my artwork - so big thanks to Rebeccak for starting this workshop and taking me a little further on my journey...:)

01 January 2007, 01:45 PM
Intervain thanks for the kind words :) Have to say that your two pieces are stunning!

Frejasphere I totally agree to get rid of this "cloudy effect", I dont like that at all, but without you pointing it I am not sure I really have seen it. Your painting is very nice and you have a lot of patience to have done this in Acrylic :bowdown:

Its only the morning for me, but I will not have another time to post my final.

Here it is:

Choice 01:
Lord Frederick Leighton (1830-1896)
Oil on canvas, 1879
20 1/2 x 16 1/4 inches (52.1 x 41.3 cm)

I had so much fun doing this and looking at this thread... I am totally in the next one!!!

eduart: have to say, that is terrific! always a big fan of mono works.....


01 January 2007, 06:55 PM
@ YMS: Thanks a lot for your kind words! :)

@ Frejasphere: I'm really glad you like it. I did my best, it was the first time I put myself to sketch fabric. Thanks a lot! :D

@ AlejoX: Heeeey!! It's so nice to read you! I hope to see your works in here soon! :bounce:

@ eduart and calan: :bowdown:

Wow, amazing works in here. I'm speechless. Congrats to all, and all my respect!


Bless :)

01 January 2007, 07:08 PM
Congrate all who anticipate this workshop! lots of inspiring works.
i'm shamed abondon my work so early.. but (my life must go on,,,,,,) learned lot too..

Thanks for everybody and especially rebecca.
See you guys and gals at next workshop.

01 January 2007, 07:13 PM
OK - this is the final one. I could keep noodling on this for a long time - so Rebecca, thank you for a deadline!

NR43 - you were so right about the size of the head and also right that it would be too late in the game to fix. I tried to redo the head and face on another layer and every revision would require another change elsewhere. So I muddled along to make what I have look as close as I can get it.

This has been great fun! I look forward to the next one!

Thanks to all for comments and inspiration...


01 January 2007, 09:28 PM
Amaryllis it's wonderful! time well spend for sure!!
And so is everyone else's work here omg I am so bloody amazed :bounce::thumbsup:

You guys rock! All of ya!
I hope to see you all in the next one...

Spend another 3 hours fixing the face of Marie today... (can't believe how long it takes me to get it right, this must be the most difficult head I've ever done)

Too bad I didn't make it (it's 1.5hrs before deadline here in Belgium) but I'll finish it even though the workshop is over.

Thanks all it was a wonderful experience to be part of OFDW20!

01 January 2007, 10:16 PM
Great work everybody!

Unfortunately I didn't manage to finish my piece :(

I look forward for next workshop :)


01 January 2007, 11:31 PM
January 10, 2007

Beautiful work by everyone in this workshop. A real pleasure to see it all happen.

:thumbsup: :applause:

Hope to see Everyone in the next one!

Take Care

OFDW 020 : Finished

01 January 2007, 12:17 AM
Amazing job everyone. :)

I think that these are my finals - at least to meet the deadline. :) I have to admit that this was one of the most challenging paintings I've worked on - it's incredible to me how Ingres did this in oils - I can't begin to approach the level or finesse of detail in his work, even with the luxury of digital and Ctrl + Z - I barely have the grayscale worked out, and just the beginning of color. I truly tip my hat.

Grayscale version:

A larger version of the same grayscale image may be seen here (

I want to continue working on the colorization of this piece later, but for the time being, I've had quite enough of it. :)

01 January 2007, 12:56 AM

I appreciate your comments about Ingres. I found myself having similar thoughts, especially with Carravagio. I think one of the real benefits of doing this workshop is deepening one's appreciation for the artist they are hanging out with all this time. I've done a lot of work with facial expression and I still marvel at Carravagio's capacity to see and describe that seductive, impish grin - an expression that lasts less than a second... and the dynamic quality of the whole figure - so lively, no sense of laboring over it. I'm in awe.


01 January 2007, 01:07 AM

Great to have you aboard the Workshop, and I hope you will participate in more. :) Copying the masters is so humbling - it's really the reason to do them, because you realize how far above your own expectations these master artists' were - it truly puts things in perspective. I've spent years doing master drawings and I always learn something new from doing them. I'm glad to hear that you have enjoyed the process as well. :)

EDIT: Welcome Belianis! :) I hope you will join in the next OFDW as well!

01 January 2007, 04:58 AM
Alright a few more touches, sharpened up a few areas.

Choice 02:
Lord Frederick Leighton (1830-1896)
Oil on canvas, 1862
Private collection

LINK B (same ref. as above) (

01 January 2007, 06:13 AM
architectus - really awesome :bounce:

Rebeccak - is that a Matrix-style bg behind her?! :eek::scream:

01 January 2007, 08:15 AM

This thread must be worked to the knees at the moment... I posted comments that got eaten by cyberspace :D

Lovely work everyone :applause:

Amaryllis: I like the way you've captured the likeness and the colours in yours! Also liked your comment about fleeting expressions, capturing that momentary "something" in a split second. Imagine what it would have been like when visual reference of a subject was totally reliant on having the model pose, or using sketches for when the model had gone home (or fallen asleep..)

Rebeccak: I think the colourized version I saw earlier must be gone? The greyscale one is lovely!! :thumbsup: and I'm sure you'll finish the colour version too, a break can be a good thing, especially when you end up working so intensely on a piece as this. :)

Glenn: Nice one! :)

Johan: Don't worry about deadlines... keep going! She's looking great & I really like the way she's emerging in an almost suspenseful way!:)

Eduart: Stunning piece, the contrast with the black background makes him leap off the page! :applause:

Calan: No worries :) and nice work!

SaraD: What you've done so far is lovely, truly hope you finish in your own time!

Thanks for great workshop and all take care!

Please let me know if I have neglected to include work in the All Participants' Final Pieces thread!

Thanks again for an outstanding Workshop! :)

01 January 2007, 05:28 AM
it's cool to see it all gathered together - gives one the idea of an enormity of work done over this last month!

YMS I'm still in love with your painting :drool: I adore the luscious skin tones and the richness of it ... have you added those bg strokes lately?! They are rather distracting :sad:

01 January 2007, 06:43 AM
They are rather distracting :sad:
Magdalena, are you on a Mac? The background strokes of the curtain were part of my final update. They're not as intrusive when viewed on Windows (at least for me, and my monitor). Pity if it's that noticeable! :shrug:

01 January 2007, 06:51 AM
Hey Yvonne
I'm on a Windows as well... maybe it's because my screen is rather bright - too bright now I think of it... or maybe I've just been staring at this painting for too long and seeing things one doesn't notice immediately a little clearer... Yep must be the second thing, after all I didn't notice them before, right?! :)

Some really great work came out of this. Lots of people learned a few things. I know I did! Still can't believe how mine turned out. :)

Argh, I missed putting up Fatebringer's / Mark's file because I couldn't see it (either something is wrong with my connection here or something was wrong with Mark's server) - my big apologies! I will have your file up soon!

EDIT: I have added Mark's OFDW piece ( to the SPOTLIGHT thread, where it always belonged. :)
