"Raven (Day 1)"

Starting from today, I am going to share with you the development of one figure painting. I am not sure how many days I will spend on it. You are welcome to take ride with me, and comment on my process and help me to grow.

This is the stage at the end of my first day. I went to AVAA yesterday and we had a beautiful model Raven posing for us. I have spent 3 hours and did a monochromatic sketch on a 8" x 10" canvas. I was concentrated purely on the accuracy of the proportion. I got some details on the face, hand, and feet. I got the human form basically correct. What about color? I had a little there. Are they correct? Who cares.

An art form is the specific shape, or quality an artistic expression takes. The media used often influence the form. For example, the form of a sculpture must exist in space in three dimensions, and respond to gravity. The constraints and limitations of a particular medium are thus called its formal qualities. To give another example, the formal qualities of oil painting are the canvas texture, color, and brush texture. The formal qualities of video games are non-linearity, interactivity and virtual presence. The form of a particular belstaff jackets outlet is determined by the formal qualities of the media, and is not related to the intentions of the artist or the reactions of the audience in any way whatsoever as these properties are related to content rather than form.
