SP... 12 ! Window

Painting #12 ~!

I had a difficult time getting the colors right again... and later i checked and the values are off. Did this in about 50 minutes. getting shapes are tough.. i stopped sketching and just tried to eyeball things this time. hereee it is!

the picture on the left is the original, the one on the right is my painting. i think i got caught  up on the details again. need to simplifyyyy.

also fun day today. i found out just how stubborn my teeth is. it wont let go of my jaw.. well i'll let the oral surgeon do her thing on monday. for now i'll have a loose wisdom tooth in my mouth. ouch. :(

but that means more time to paint!! or.. draw! yay for positivity!


  1. CATHARINA! you should do a video of yourself after getting the wisdom tooth out! you could call it: CATHARINA AFTER THE DENTIST. haha. "is this real life???"

    Anyways, your shapes are pretty close! and the wall color in the foreground is really close. The backwall could be darker. hmmm your strokes look pretty sketchy but i think maybe because of the time constraint?

    LOVE YOU, keep it up!

  2. HAHAHA I love Nicki's suggestion. DO IT!!!

    About your painting: I would say that your painting is just missing the warmth. Do you see the orangy/brown reflections on the wall? It's because the light bouncing around the room is warm, white sunlight. Don't worry, I made the same mistake. That was like my 6th painting so I simplified it A LOT. There was just one big window XD I tried to focus on light. For me, working on shapes didn't come until a few paintings after. Regardless, KEEP GOING!!! You're learning!! :DDD
