Sargent study by moonxels Sargent study by moonxels
a study after Sargent, the way that he paints is so perfect...

I think you have caught something of his loose brushstrokes which contain so much life !

yeah I reckon I got some of it!
the thing I don't get is the "science " in what color and what brush stroke to use and where!

the confusing thing for me is the mixture of science and impulse.With colour using small amounts of the opposite spectrum colour nearby enlivens the first colour, this holds particularly when painting light and shadow. So if the light has alot of orange in it the shadow would have alot of blue. I guess you know this, please forgive me if you do and carry on yawning !As for when to do which sort of brushstroke, I do not know if there is a science there.I am guided by psychological thingees ...if I am anxious about 'getting it right' I become over cautious and tight, free brush strokes come from risk of losing a bit of painting that I really reckon is good and want to hang onto !!' Fuck this' is often a prelude to my best bits of painting and then making sure that I don't go and mess it by trying to improve or clean it up !!! I do alot of 'walking away !! Hope this makes some sense, if you're still there !

yes for the shadows I learned about it from richard schmidt(from his book)

about the brush strokes, I tend at the beginning to add a lot of detail and thus ruin the spontaneity of the initial strokes, thing is that I was really unaware of this, now that I know what's going on I'm struggling with this, i guess its the frontier between a good and a bad painter...
the goal here is to refine things without losing the initial energy.

thanks for replying!
